Some Instruments around the house

The largest one is a small hammer dulcimer. The slender wooden hammers are for striking the strings. The smaller stringed instrument is a psaltery, played by plucking with the fingers or by striking with a plectrum. James Becker Becker Instruments made these two instruments. The pipe on the left is a fife. On the right is a recorder and a penny whistle. My cat likes the stringed instruments best.

Brave Cat Tara, Hoorah for You!

A family’s cat attacked a vicious dog that had snatched her boy owner off a tricycle and was dragging and chasing him. A video camera (surveillance?) captured the entire attack: The cat tackles the dog, then chases him off the property and returns to the boy. Brave creatures are all around us!

Loving welcome to Letitia Dunbar and Galway Evans, dear, sly sleuths in their first full mystery: The Tune of Murder. A Kindle book by early morning! One hopes.

Thanks to Kindle Dave L.

Many thanks to Kindle helper Dave L. for a quick response to a problem. After a few hours of editing for overlooked errors–a missed tab instead of paragraph format, too many commas (love them!), or too many exclamation points (love them, too!), wordiness, head hopping, or sentiment–I clicked save and publish.
