From: The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

"I had once seen Ajax, Father's best dog, get into a fight with a hummingbird and lose. The hummingbird had dived at him and spooked him until he'd trotted back to the front porch, looking very embarrassed. (It is possible for a dog to look embarrassed, you know. He'd whipped around and started licking his nether parts, a sure sign a dog is trying to hide his true feelings.)

  1. I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't read this yet, Marie. Now I'll definitely add it to my TBR list.

    How are you?

  2. Joanne,It's great. The narrator's voice is timeless.

    I'm doing well, but I've been so tired. It's hard to get anything done, but I'm still trying!
