OK, so here is Woofy and me. I'm the one in the sunglasses. She is just one of the three Huskies. I think I was trying to train her to walk on a lead but, I ended up gettting trained.

ravenriter: We're always the ones who get trained. Dogs are masters at imperceptible coersion. She's beautiful!

sibhus: Ja, and Huskies have developed that into a fine art. I think they have a monastery out on the plains of Siberia where they learn to mess with our minds.

ravenriter: I like that image! I can just see them pacing about wearing smoke-gray hoods from beneath which their blue eyes gleam. Does Woofy have blue eyes?

sibhus: Woofy is bi-eyed she has one blue and one brown eye. My male, Brigham, has blue eyes and my other femal, Roxy has brown eyes, but if you really loke at them they are more an amber color.

ravenriter: We adopted a rescue at the end of July after losing our beloved mix, Mara (if you want to cry a little, check out my poem, "Losing You" which I wrote after she passed). Our new dog, Shannon, is supposed to be part husky (and who knows what else?) Her eyes are brown and she has a beautiful, white/golden coat. She's an absolute treasure. I lasted precisely 13 days without a dog, and almost didn't make that!

Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"

Locals believe Civil War treasure's hidden in the mansion. Paige's new home becomes a target for thieves. Both Cash and Bradley vie to protect her. Who will succeed? Will Paige find an even greater treasure; romance with Cash?
This novel weaves a tale of romance, history, and ghostly mystery that keeps readers enthralled from the first page to the last.
