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

and gossip columnist!

Had a note from Barbara Grengs, author of the Toby Martin Series. She will be signing Toby 6 in Minnesota on April 16th.  More Details Later!

I freely admit I have been going NUTS week. I snuck outside and what do you think I saw? BIRDS! They are building a nest right on top of our wood stove chimney!

I can't really say what kind they are,,,those little brown ones with the bright eyes. I think they must be newbies at nesting, because they picked a doofus place to settle down.  Who builds a nest on top of a chimney? WHAT do they think would happen if we lit the stove?

Okay, they don't really burn it anymore. And, Yes, Roger put a grate inside the top, so they can't really get down into the stove, so they're safe. But it's still a stupid place.

Safe? Well, they ARE! You don't think that I--?

Listen, I may be a tomcat, but I leave all hunting activities to humans and those poor, unfortunate, unemployed cats who don't have a bookstore to guard.

Still, all that cheep, Cheep, CHEEP! coming out of the stove sure makes me restless. I just want to get In there and SEE...

Just send a message with 

 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and

I'll make sure it shows up right here!
