“What greater gift than the love of a cat.”

I just finished it! Virgil Flowers has a real star turn, but there’s a shocker in there, too. I think Sandford’s books are consistently good unlike some other authors whose books begin to suffer after they’ve cranked out so many.I'm reading Ocean Prey - John Sanford, one of my favorite authors, on my iPad.
I interviewed an 86-year-old woman who weaves 3’ x 6’ mats for homeless people. She makes them out of used plastic grocery bags and the plastic bags newspaper are delivered in, and uses a kind of wooden…loom I guess you’d call it, that someone made for her. They’re virtually indestructible, are water proof, and can be hosed down or tossed in a washing machine when they get dirty. They provide a bit of insulation and cushioning. Her church distributes them through one of the local social service agencies. Anyway, I plan to write the article today.
Also on my list is to make some caramel, which can be kind of hit or miss for me. I’ve burned a lot of sugar! But my husband likes to put it on brownies. (Like brownies need any more sugar! )
Walked 2 1/2 miles this morning. Saw a jack rabbit, two California quail, two turkeys, four geese, and numerous ducks. Oh, and lots of people walking their dogs.
