DECRYPTING THEE CACHE, by Jennifer Kirsch
Treading through a shadowy woods didn’t rank high on my fun list. Yet I found myself surrounded by tangled tree limbs and hairy vines one Sunday evening. My new friend Dev crept along with me as we navigated angry roots, sprawling branches, and knotty trunks that resembled our knobby-nosed history teacher.
We hoped to find a geocache. “You know,” I’d explained to Dev, “a hidden container you find using a navigation app.” But he’d wanted to see it for himself.

TRUTH OF YESTERDAY, by Josh Aterovis
ALL LOST THINGS, by Josh AterovisCHANGE OF WORLDS, by Josh AterovisJack's News!by your Official Bookstore Cat,
and gossip columnist!
No real gossip this week, though I've heard from a few folks who are working hard on projects.
Robert Kanehl has approved the cover for his newest Hannah Griswold Mystery. He says he should have it to us soon. I thought the weeping figure behind Hanna looked a little fuzzy on this, but Arline reminded me it is a ghost. I love the Hannah mysteries.
Our newest author, Jennifer Kirsch, likes to go Geocaching. I felt kinda bad that I didn't know it was an Internet app for a treasure hunt game. Seems people all over hide stuff to be found OR people search for what has been hidden with their computers or cellphones. When they find the cache, there can be puzzles or directions inside...wild. Then they follow the directions and post online what they have found,.There are Geocaches in 17 countries. Imagine that!
I wish I could go geocaching, but Arline would never let me take the laptop outside and I don't have a cell phone. I did try to sign up for one, but they wouldn't let me. I think they're just prejudiced because I'm a feline, but they SAID I didn't have a high enough credit score.
Today is Roger's birthday. I gave him my best present, too, and he didn't even notice yet. It's the new mousie I got for Christmas -- the one that dangles, with all shiny ribbons. I put it in his easy chair and he hasn't seen it yet. He'll find it if he sits on it, though. ;D
Okay I know it's not new, and the ribbons are a bit chewed by now, but it's better than what my baby sister Spunky got him. She dropped a big hog-nosed beetle right in his hand while he was eating breakfast and he didn't, even thank her. He just got up and chucked it in the trash.
Anyway we'll all get to sing to him later...
