Nope, I couldn't stand it. Tweetie's not forgotten, the little hell-raiser never will be, but in January we welcomed Keatie bird into our home. She's about six months old now; the photo shows her the day after she arrived. Keat and Pete share a cage off by themselves, away from JT and J3 in the aviary (and those two seem to think they own the place now). As soon as she finishes growing up, we'll introduce her to the "big house."
In other news: Deal with the Devil won the World War II category of the 2013 Chaucer Award for Historical Fiction, and is now competing in the finals for the award itself. Trophies is a finalist for the 2013 Clue Award, and I've finished the first rough draft of a new novella called Star of Wonder, which will be published by Dingbat Publishing this autumn.
