Literary Mischief, Part II

Hey It’s Jet Here.

In case you missed Part I, click here and here.

dog book clubMiss Beverly generously lent Mom a book about a month or so ago.  Because of Mom’s schedule, she’s read the book in bits and pieces, currently having about 30 pages to go.  Little Miss Women’s Book Club decided to read along with Mom as well.

Often, when Mom reads before bed, she marks her page, closes the book and lays it down beside her pillow.  Sometimes her books receive the same treatment as eggs kept warm by chickens.  Yes, Little Miss Book Club and I inadvertently (VBP) will lay on Mom’s books, so she forgets to place them on her side table the next day.

At some point, Little Miss Weekly Reader decided to catch up on her chapters.  When Mom next finds time to read, she discovers the following:

I, Jetty, cultured gentleman of letters, will demonstrate the proper form for reading!

Another great literary mischief day!

P.S.  Wishing a Happy, Healthy and Abundant New Year to All!  Stay safe tonight.  I will spend the festivities in the closet with Mom and Little Miss Barkarooni!

Did You Hear the One About…

Hey It’s Jet Here.

So, Mom and I, (ok, Little Miss Happy, Happy, too), jumped up and down when we learned that Miss Annette and Snoopy published their Pawesome book on that Amazon place.

Of course, if I, Mischief Minded Jetty, did not:

  1. Perform dashing fetes (VBP – vocab builder project) of Mischief,
  2. Expertly dictate same to Mom,
  3. Remind her to rapidly submit THREE posts to choose from (yes, because I’m THAT good!) when Snoopy requested, (Mom couldn’t pick the best… she’s too close to the talent!)

jet with berry branchWe might have missed our selection by Snoops for Rule 2 – Hide The Evidence.  Can you believe Snoops and Miss Annette included us in the book’s preview video, whoo hoo!

Oops, I digressed, got a little carried away with my new found 15 seconds of fame…

You see on Thursday morning, when I lovingly woke Mom at 4:30 a.m. to get a head start on her day, she came upon an email from a friend in Cayman.

Mr. Adam, “A friend of mine recommended this on Facebook and the name of the editor caught my eye.”   Mom nearly fell out of her chair.  How did Mr. Adam find Snoopy’s book one day after Miss Annette published it?

IMG_1302Mom has five friends downloading the book so far, we hope you will to.  Half of the profits go to help Therapy Dogs.  Mom has a fondness for therapy dogs as many of you know because she and my golden sister, Koko, volunteered at our local children’s hospital for 4.5 years.

Another great literary day!

P.S.  Big Happy Birthday Wishes to my Human Sister, Rachel! Xoxoxoxoxo

P.P.S.  If anyone would like my pawtograph, let me know… I promise to remain grounded Jetty, no celebrity tantrums here, uh uh, no paparazzi at Casa Jetty, no diva food requests, no drama …….

Summer Reading

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom told JJ and I that many humans enjoy reading more during the summer than at other times of the year.  Unfortunately, she still lugs these heavy rectangle thingies wherever she goes versus those humans who read 2.0 style with machines called Nooks, Kindles, and I-Pads.  While listening to NPR radio two days ago, she heard a great story about K9 memoirs, “books about how dogs transform their owners’ lives.”  Oh, did I mention that Mom reads like a turtle?   (no disrespect to our friends at Under the Shell!)

The great part about the NPR link; you can listen to the story or read it.  They review five books so you humans will sure have lots to choose from, learn and enjoy about us K9s!  Mom said her first choice at the moment remains Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him is by Luis Carlos Montalvan.

Mom always shares books she purchases.  These days, since Mom’s doing that budgeting thingie more, she may scout the used book store (the best one closed a few years back.) If our blogpals lived closer, we’d offer a book-swap!

What’s on your summer reading list?

Another great, summertime reading, day.
