The Fly on the Wall Weekly Link Round-Up

I'm finishing this link round-up a bit earlier than usual. I have a lot of things going on, and I'm trying to be organized. (Will wonders never cease?) Spring cleaning, pruning back shrubs that have gone wild in all the rain we've gotten, blocking completed knitting projects, trips to events at The Poisoned Pen. Then there are the lovely doctor's appointments Denis and I have to keep. At least Denis doesn't have to have a mammogram. Speaking of mammograms, I never understood some of my friends who didn't like to have them done because they were painful. I'm ashamed to say that I thought I had a bunch of wusses for friends. Now I know better, due to a technician who really liked to tighten those plates down. I came this close to telling her that I wasn't going to make a quick getaway so she could let up the pressure!

L to R: Linda Castillo and Brunonia Barry
But that has nothing to do with the "fly on the wall" part of my title. I'm excited because I'm going to a four-author event at The Poisoned Pen tomorrow, and afterward most of the authors and I are going to a nearby restaurant for drinks, nibbles, and chat. I don't care how many authors I talk with, I still get nervous. I'm such a fan girl!

I'd like to thank Jeff, web content manager of The Poisoned Pen, for the photo I'm using this week. It shows two favorite authors of mine, Linda Castillo and Brunonia Barry, chatting in the shipping room of the bookstore. Am I the only one who wants to be a fly on the wall when I see two authors chatting? It's terrible!

To take my mind off my unseemly curiosity, I'm going out to the link corral. Head 'em up! Mooooooooooooove 'em out!

  • A whale takes kayakers for an unforgettable ride. 
  • One of these days while Denis and I are in Cochise County, I hope to see this gorgeous jaguar. I don't think this beautiful fellow is too worried about border walls. 
  • There have been never-before-seen gatherings of hundreds of humpback whales.
  • I think I'll give this 134-foot-deep sinkhole in Florida a miss. It's the favorite hangout of dozens of alligators.

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. Excellent article about Buffy. Great to see so many author fans of a show I love.

    Enjoy your event at The Poisoned Pen!

    1. I know... every time I find out that an author likes the same books or television programs that I do, it makes me happy. I'm not sure why!


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
