Where Did Summer Go?

After a decidedly cool Summer's night last night I am pleased to see the Sun has appeared from behind the clouds. Mia and I took Bondi for a leisurely walk. We came across a cat on heat... the owners were going for a walk with their dogs and left the on-heat cat meowing for a fella to come mate with her. Irresponsible gits!!
I am washing curtains, the breeze will surely dry them as I hang them when wet... so not to crinkle them of course.
I finished reading Bryce Courtenay's newest book, "The Persimmon Tree" today. I loved it. I love the way Bryce writes...his sentences have a thousand meanings each. As I read it, I can hear his voice narrating..albeit he has a strong South African accent. I guess, if I ever got to meet him I'd have to tell him that this book is far better than his others. I have read all of his books, I love them all, and with every new addition, he captures my mind. The Persimmon Tree... go borrow it today from the library, it is a great novel.

That just left that cat out to slut around? What kind of parents are they?

I haven't read much Bryce Courtenay. I loved The Power Of One, years and years ago when I read that. I tried to read a fairly recent one, I think it was called The Four Fires or something, but for some reason I couldn't get past the first few pages. I tried about five times, and just couldn't get into it! Which was a shame, because my mother recommended it and generally her advice is very good when it comes to books. Oh well, maybe I'll try again someday. :)

Why do people think they are above everyone else and let their animals run around lose like that? Do they know what over population of strays are? Oh well...what can you do.

I have never heard of that book. I just may have to check it out. AFTER I read the 4 or 5 I have left before I go back to work.

I just can't get into Bryce. He uses six words when one will do, I find it frustrating.

Galen, mmmm, I dunno if I like the cool or the heat best.

Jay, I reckon they are bad parents! LOL

Stace, I can say I was the same with that book too...I just speed read the first chapter tehn after that it went ok I guess :)

FC&F, I want it to stay forever :)

Cam, yeah, I have been watching the radar up there mate :)

Keshi, it sure is hon.

Jillie, I agree...4 or 5 books, whwat are their titles??

Steph, for some reason I persist with reading his books, I know what you mean, one sentence has so many meanings.
