I received a new haircut the other day. I didn’t want the haircut, but that is what happens when you get stuck in sticky grass. First, I got sticky grass on both sides of my snout, and had to have it cut out. Then later I was chasing a cat and got stuck in a patch of sticky grass and my master had to get me loose. This time the sticky grass was on top of my head. When I got into the house, I ground the sticky grass in my fur more. I thought I was helping to get it out.  My master could not brush it out, so she gave me a bath to see if the shampoo would help to get it to release.Guess what? It didn’t! :( She was able to get some out, but there was still a large patch hanging on.

They had to get the scissors out, and cut it loose. I look like I have a buzz cut on top of my head and my snout is almost clean-cut. I look kinda funny, but my master loves me anyway. Tomorrow I have to go to the Vet to have a tooth removed that is giving me problems. I can’t eat hard food,like my cookies, because they make my mouth hurt. The Vet said that it looks like it was shoved up and laying down on the other teeth. That is why it hurts. So, tonight after a certain time I cannot eat or drink anything. I have been fighting this tooth ache for a while.I guess tomorrow or the next day I will have more adventures for you. Charlie out.

URBAN FANTASY “Revenant: A Greywalker Novel” BY KAT RICHARDSON

revenant by kat richardson
Book Description
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And these abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases….

Turmoil, sickness, and destruction are sweeping through Europe—and its effects are being felt all the way across the world in Seattle. Harper Blaine and her lover, Quinton, suspect that Quinton’s father, James Purlis—and his terrifying Ghost Division—are involved.

Following a dark trail of grotesque crimes and black magic across the Old World, the pair slowly draws closer to their quarry. But finding and dismantling the Ghost Division won’t be enough to stop the horror that Purlis has unwittingly set in motion.

An ancient and forgotten cult has allied with Quinton’s mad father. And their goals are far more nightmarish than Harper and Quinton—or even Purlis—could ever imagine.

The pursuit leads to Portugal, where the desecrated tomb of a sleeping king and a temple built of bones recall Harper’s very first paranormal case and hold clues to the cult’s true intentions. Harper and Quinton will need all the help they can get to avert a necromantic cataclysm that could lay waste to Europe and drag the rest of the world to the brink of war.


I love this series, and this is a great ending to it for now. Harper was told by Quinton to go to Portugal, but don’t let anyone know that she has left Seattle. She automatically goes to Carlos for he would know how to get out of the country quietly.Quinton tells her that his niece has been kidnapped by his Father. Now they have to rescue her before they do something ghastly to her. They have necromancers who want to create a hell dragon. They have to try to stop it before all HELL breaks loose. Harper had to save Carlos by giving him some of her blood, which has enabled him to go out in the sun. It has made him temporarily mortal. Also in this case Harper will lose a body part when she is taken by the enemy. This is such a well-written book and has well-developed characters. I love this world that Kat Richardson has created, and I will miss it for now. I will have to revisit it every now and then. I give REVENANT 5/5 stars.  I recommend this book and series to everyone.
