Have you ever tried dill pickle flavored sunflower seeds? They're not bad, if you like the taste of dill pickles. I don't think my squirrels and birds would appreciate it if I replaced their black-oiled sunflower seeds with dill pickle ones, but Dilly might -- he loves dill pickles. I'm hoping my book, A New Job for Dilly will be available real soon. Right now my publisher is at a book festival and the last I heard, Dilly was at the printers. So hopefully, I will be seeing copies of the book really soon. A New Job for Dilly is an alphabet book where Dilly the rat goes on a search from A to Z to find the perfect job so he can enjoy his pickles without having to steal them. I'm sure he'd be tickled pink with dill flavored sunflower seeds -- maybe even pickled pink!
I woke up sick and sore -- sick thanks to my family, and sore thanks to the rocks I was shoveling yesterday. I still have some more to move, so I'm hoping to feel good enough to go back out there today. We have a fountain in our backyard that we've been working on for awhile. It's kind of an ugly fountain, but the animals like it so much that we're trying to make it work better. At times, I've seen over 50 birds in it. The deer drink from it, so do the squirrels and chipmunks, and I've also seen black bears in it. It's nice to have it running in the summer because it's loud and sounds like a stream. Anyway, I hope to feel well enough to work outside more today, if it doesn't start raining. I could sure use some dill pickled sunflower seeds to perk me up. If you'd like to order my book, click here for details or over on the cover on the right. Hopefully the copies will be done soon and we can start getting the books out. I can't wait to see it!
