"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

Dog(s) of the Day

Nearly every day at the Convention I've seen at least one dog. Usually it's a service dog in training, but sometimes it's a local dog being exercised by its owner.

The most frequent sighting has been Emily, who will be a service dog for a disabled veteran.

I don't recall this dog's name, something like Buster or Rover. One of the largest dogs I've ever seen.

Lizzie is also being trained. She's a sweetie.

Bishop Bruno of LA is honoured by having his diocesan Altar Guild's stuffed dog named after him. When not welcoming visitors to the Liturgical Art Exhibit, Bruno hangs out at the cathedral.

Rufus the whippet was rather bored by the Exhibition Hall.

I met Kobe yesterday, on my short walk from the Hilton to the Convention Center. He's an Akita. He also loved to pose for photographers!

Today's sighting was a little tiny white fluffy dog belonging to a hotel guest, in the lobby as I boarded an elevator. No time to get a picture.

Shout out to my own much-missed Ruth and Jewel--looking forward to our reunion on Saturday evening!
