Today has been great! After lunch Tony and I decided to give Belle Starr-Simons another chance to ride with us to Medina to get her used to riding with T., since the last two times we took her to Medina, she got car sick and threw up right before we made it home. And now I am proud to announce that Belle was the star today, because she didn't vomit! Here's a picture I took of Tony's dog paying attention to his driving—just like I do.
Today Tony and I had a nice surprise when we opened up our mail, because our dear friend Ruth Buzzi sent us the cutest autographed picture of her with Kent and her's cat, Ratzo. We loved the picture of her and they weren't kidding about Ratzo being an extra-large cat! Ruthie wrote:
"To Cousin Nancy, Tony and Enzo,
We love the Book, (I gave them a copy of my latest book Meanwhile Back At The Rescue Ranch: The Dog Days of Cousin Nancy) The gorgeous photos by Tony and all of you!!!!
Ruthie, Ratzo and Kent
Early this evening Kinky called and asked me if I wanted to go on a hike with him and The Friedmans and ten minutes later Kinky and I were hiking up a steep hill with Sophie, Brownie and Chumley. During our fun hike we talked about his upcoming three-week-long tour and then his one month Australian tour starting in June. "Kinky, I don't see how you do it. I can't image flying anywhere—especially to big cities night-after-night..." Kinky chuckled.
"They call them "one-night-stands, Nance."" I started laughing because I thought they meant something else.
On our way back to the Lodge we talked about the exciting news that his six new ebooks are now available on his web site for the Kindle, the Nook and for Apple's iPad, iTouch and they are: A Case of Lone Star, Curse of the Missing Puppet Head, Frequent Flyer, Greenwich Killing Time, Musical Chairs and When the Cat's Away! So when I came home I immediately got online and bought all six of them! And to my surprise—they are all signed by Kinky. And in the very near future there will be more ebook titles to buy from his site and I hope that you will check it out and add them to your ebook collection.
It is now nearly eight o'clock and Kinky has just called and I need to go over to the Lodge, because I need to ask Rambam a few questions about the software he used to record Kinky—reading his books for his audiobooks, that will be available soon at www.kinkyfriedman.com, because I really need help—big time.
Y'all have a great evening!
