            Not much new going on in this new year so far, which is fine.

             Mostly, I’ve been making progress on the third Shelter of Secrets book for Harlequin Romantic Suspense. As I’ve previously mentioned, the second will be published in May 2022: Guardian K-9 On Call.  Yes, more dogs in that one and the one I’m currently writing, just the way I like to write!

             All’s fortunately fine with our own dog Cari, although we’re still keeping our eyes open for another Cavalier King Charles Spaniel pup to become her companion. Not easy to find with reputable breeders, and, considering the breed’s health issues, going with a reputable, caring breeder is the best way to go. 

            Not much going on with the weather here in LA now. We had a nice rain storm a little while ago, and we need the water. Not sure when our next storm is likely to be. Some fog, yes, but no rain currently in the forecast, I think. And I’ve been watching the news about all the snowstorms and cold elsewhere in the country. That’s my background, but not my current lifestyle. Hope all of you experiencing it are doing well—and those of you who aren’t experiencing it are doing well, too!

    Oh, and by the way, January 17 would have been Betty White's 100th birthday. I'll be contributing to an animal welfare organization that day in her memory. She was not only a fun actress, but also a wonderful animal advocate. And I'll be happy to do  my part in remembering her and celebrating her birthday.

Sometimes it's nice to not have much going on except the day-to-day. Happy New Year and wishing you great success in 2022.

I think donating to an animal charity is the nicest thing you can do to honor Betty White. A good friend of ours was her commercial agent and everything I heard about her was that she was absolutely the lovely person that we all saw. Saw in person at our friends wedding.

I agree, Sally. Happy New Year to you too, and I hope you also have a successful, and fun, 2022.

I always admired Betty White, and wish I'd met her. I appreciated all she did for animals, including the Los Angeles Zoo. How fun that you saw her in person, and that you know someone who actually knew her, Betty.
