Jack's News!
  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!


Bob Kanehl, got his brand new copies of LOST SPIRIT this week and wrote to say: 
  "The files look great - thanks. I'm off to a book signing already this one at the art gallery where an artist will be painting a picture to go with my words..."

Print gallies also went out to Frances Langley, C.M. Albrecht, and Tom Ward, so we've been pretty busy around  here...

I understand that Dave and Shelley's  the oldest "grand-puppy," Chrissy, has been pretty sick with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. She was in the same hospital I go to, so I know she got good care. But she is home now and playing with her Frisbee.  Chrissy and I are about the same age and we used to play together a lot until she got too big to be much fun anymore.  She was playing. I was fighting for my life!
Been a lot of tears going on here, too. Something about Dave's tumor not having the right T-cells for the trial. I don't know what that means, but I'm still saying my cat prayers. They go to the nursing home almost every day and come home saying how good he looks. His rehab has him walking like he always did and Roger keeps saying he's "his old self." Arline said he told her the wound from his infection is closing up and she seemed real glad about that.
Dave is all set to go home next Wednesday! So that's the Good news. He will be so happy to see Hudson Wharf Road again and his neighbors pitched in and cut the grass, so that's one chore off ihs list.
I know both his puppies will be glad to see him and some nurses from a place called Hospice will be coming to help take care of him there. 

Please don't forget to let me know 
what you are all up to! 

Just send me an e-mail with 

 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and 

I'll make sure it shows up right here.
