Jack's News!

  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!

I was so happy to hear from my feline friends Lucy and Darby who live with Elizabeth Eagan-Cox high in the California Mountains, east of L.A. They are both Lap-cats and sent me book reviews.  Lucy gave Elizabeth  the idea for the ghost cat in her book A Ghost of Brother Jonathan's.  See above.

 (Just scroll on down to the next blog for the reviews if you missed them!) 

I took Darby's advice on the action-adventure story and finished it Last Night! Boy, that was a great read! I do think the author could have thought up a more warrior-type name for him, though. Puss? I ask you? How creative is that? My own name is Jack Dempsey and he was a famous warrior in his day.  When I was reading, I pictured Puss more like this:

Meanwhile, here at home,  Arline is still stumbling around and getting out of breath if she walks more than up and down the hall. But she still says she feels better. I'm not so sure of that. She gave me treats 3 times last night (Every time I asked!) and she NEVER does that because, as you know, I am on a diet! So I'm sure her concentration is not back up to snuff.

She DID call the computer man, but he said that if it works at all, we have to wait! "People who are 'Blackscreen' come first." Mmmm. Must be a new virus. I have to admit our Electronic Box IS functioning after a fashion, but he's being VERY uncooperative...Even the printer won't work!

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

Just send a message with 

 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and

I'll make sure it shows up right here.
