If you have a juicer, does it bother you when all that stripped-away pulp goes in the trash?
Well, I've got two ways you can make use of it!
In this post: Lemon Meringue pie drama (with recipe), dog pajamas, giveaways and Pineapple Lies - FREE!
I don't know if it is shaping up that 2022 will feel all shiny and new, but I want to thank you all for a good 2021 and I look forward to hearing from you in the new year!
My book release plans include two more Shee McQueen Thriller/Mysteries, three more Pineapples and maybe I'll finally get the final Kilty book finished.
Below are the top poll results of the "What are your favorite mysteries?" poll. If you haven't read these authors, maybe you can find a new favorite in the list. (and thank you to the people who picked me even though I said not to! :) )

So it's official, Archer's more famous than me.
Mike and I watch English Premier League Football (soccer) and they have a thing where you can submit yourself, or your kids or your pets, dressed up for "Premier League Morning." We bought a scarf of our team, the Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) --- which will come in really handy here in South Florida --- and submitted Archer wearing it. Then for weeks we looked for it... and then...
When he's wet, Archer likes to weave repeatedly around my legs in a figure-eight pattern, rubbing himself like a cat. Sometimes he picks one leg to circle instead. When he does he bumps into his own super-long tail... and bites it... turning himself into a neverending circle as he goes around and around.
Poor Archie was attacked by his bed last week. He barely survived...
I have a niece selling Girl Scout cookies, so even though I try very hard not to eat them, I had to buy them. (I used to sell them, so I get it!)
So, what to do with them?
I have two special new releases for you today, but first - we'd noticed Archie loves moving all his toys to his little house, but we didn't realize phase two was moving himself into his toy box. I guess this is what happens when hoarders fill out their real home...
Our boy is here! We were TOLD he's a Bordoodle, but we're pretty sure he's a BorShoodle (Border Collie/Baby Shark/Standard Poodle) and while he looks big in this photo, he's only twelve pounds and nine weeks old and an evil genius sent from another planet to taunt us.
If you don't think he could be part baby shark, I'd like to bring your attention to exhibit #1:
So until I have more puppy photos for you, I can fill in some wildlife. We have four raccoons we call "the brothers" who always travel together.
2021 seems MUCH better, eh?
Well, for what it is worth, I've made some New Year changes. I'm not approaching work with a AAAAH GET IT DONE FOR THE DAY!!! attitude -- allowing myself to get up from my desk and putter around a bit here and there instead of trying to get all my work done by lunch (I get up at 4 am). I'm one of those people who usually like to eat all the cake first so I can enjoy the icing at the end, but my "save the best (all my leisure time) for last" attitude was causing me stress. Plus, my hips apparently don't like sitting for eight hours straight the way they used to...
