I think we have another new member. Did I tell you about Bob? Bob (we were calling him Boris but Bob just fits him so well) has been a neighborhood cat for a couple of years. He spends a lot of time with our cat loving neighbors. He started coming around our place a few months ago and sat outside the window hoping for some cat nip or cat food. About a week ago he hopped in the window like he'd always been here and shortly thereafter, found himself a cozy spot on the bed. The thing about Bob is that he's a gentle giant. He is the largest cat I have ever known. Not fat, just big. He's larger than Eddie, the Jack Russell Terrier on the defunct sitcom, Frasier. He looks, in coloring, like Morris the cat from the old cat food commercials but Bob's orange and white fur is a little longer. Bob has beautiful eves that sometimes look a pretty medium blue, sometimes a minty green. He loves to walk up to a person and knock his head into their legs. Our other cats knowe him from the neighborhood. Some of them dislike him for his sheer size it seems. But he seems to fit in well. He's come over every day for the last week for 3 - 15 hours depending on his mood, I guess! I'm still without a digital camera but I have pictures being developed as I write and will have them before the
week is out (I hope).
I spent two days in NYC this week for doctor appointments, did a little fun shopping and stopped in some bookstores of course. I mostly looked and got some titles and ideas for the future. I really wanted to purchase some books but I have so many in my pile still to be read. One B&N was having a buy one mystery, get the other at half-price"> I might have been able to walk away from that but then I saw Still Life by Louise Penny, the first in her Inspector Gamache, Three Pines Series. And since it was a sell I also purchased Dennis Lehane's A Drink Before the War. I'm excited to read this since he is supposed to be another literary crime writer.
I will be posting my review of The Day the Falls Stood Still today or tomorrow. I wanted to do my review a little differently than usual since there were so many reviews of this book in the last couple of months. Hence, it seems to have taken me a very long time to write it. I will also be reviewing The Possibility of Everything by Hope Edelman this week.
Okay, that's all for now. The laundry calls! Have an enjoyable Monday please!
