Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Maggie on the Steps

Maggie loves to play ball on the steps. Every evening she woofs at me to open the door to downstairs so she can drop her ball down the steps and then retrieve it.

Sometimes she plays with her tennis ball, other times with her little squeaky ball. But the rules never change: drop the ball, try to catch it before it goes all the way down, fetch the ball back to the top, drop the ball again, etc. If I want to toss the ball down the stairs, that’s fine. If I don’t, she does it herself.

Border collies can entertain themselves quite nicely.
