Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Wouldn't you love to live in St. Mary Mead?

I would simply adore having Miss Marple as a neighbor - imagine solving crimes over tea and cake!  While Agatha Christie's spinster super sleuth has been portrayed by many fine actresses, including Angela Lansbury, my favorite is Joan Hickson.  I just finished watching 4:50 from Paddington for about the tenth time.  It's such a great story and I notice new clues every time I watch it - Aggie's namesake is the master of the red herring.  My favorite Miss Marple story is Murder at the Vicarage, where she makes her debut - but all of the stories are great.  If you've never read a Marple mystery, pick one up - you won't be sorry.  And if you're in the mood for a great mystery movie, choose one of the BBC adaptations with Joan Hickson - excellent every time!  I think I'll head on back to St. Mary Mead and see who the latest victim is...
