SUMMER…AND THE LIVIN’ IS EASY and #bookgiveaway


FROM:  Hitchcock the Cat
OF:       The Bad Luck Cat Mysteries 
BY:       Kay Finch
 

The day I hitched a ride with a tourist headed for the Texas Hill Country was the luckiest day of my life. Granted, I’m a cat, and cats have a different perspective on things than you humans – but if you haven’t ever visited, you should. In the old David Letterman tradition (I’ve seen reruns), I’ll tell you my ten favorite things about my life in the Texas Hill Country:

1.     Hitching rides with unsuspecting drivers

2.     Sitting on the keyboard when Sabrina’s writing

3.     Naps

4.     Bird watching



5.     Watching people tubing down the river

6.     Naps

7.     Crunchy tuna treats

8.     Playing with Luke Griffin’s dog Angie

9.     Naps

10.Helping Sabrina solve mysteries

To see just how a cat can help to solve a mystery, read one of the bad luck cat mysteries. You’ll find I’m a quite curious and very lucky feline.

  11. I’m right there with Hitchcock— naps are pretty wonderful, but that’s any time of year. For summer specifically I have to say backyard barbecues with friends (so long as there’s shade and a light breeze). Thanks for chatting with us Hitchcock and for the opportunity.

  14. This summer it has been sitting in my air-conditioned house, reading texts from my Texas friend whose reports on temperatures there make me feel that much cooler. The dog, however, finds it necessary to have her paws and snout on the floor vent.
