Not much to say

This has been a good and bad week. Not anything groundbreaking either way. For those of you that read my last post the dentist thing went well. I still have all of my original teeth. I did manage to lose my cell phone and had to order a new one and my back went out (a rib actually) Those were the bad things. I also managed to go with the wife and daughter to see UP!. Very good movie. The 3-D was different than it used to be. I am also halfway through my edits on my novella at this point.

In other news, I finished reading one book and started on, perhaps, one of the most unique books I have ever read. The story telling is actually pretty straight forward, it is the point of view that we get the story from. Chet the Dog. Yep, it is told from the dog's point of view and it is good. I actually bought Dog On It three months ago and I am now the 3rd person to read this copy. Mind you, the story itself isn't groundbreaking. No huge revelations about how to write are coming forth while I am reading this, but it is a fast read and entertaining. After all, don't we read to be entertained.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. I plan on grilling out and looking at antiques this weekend. Last year at this antique walk I bought a 1910 copy of the O'Henry book Options. I can't wait to see what I can find this year.

Enjoy the weekend, and I hope the antiques are out in good number.

Me too. I am a little worried that some of the dealers may stay home with the economy and all.

I've heard of that book. However, I STRONGLY suggest checking out "The Art of Driving in the Rain" by Garth Stein. It's also from the perspective of a dog and is one of the best non-horror books I have read in a VERY long time.

I'll have to check that out.

I'm glad you survived the dentist, although the rib thing sounds painful. Are you sure the dentist didn't kick you at some point?

I read a murder mystery last year written from the POVs of several sheep. It was actually really good, called Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann.
