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.

Cat Work

Every morning, siblings Chloe and Jim-Bob go outside to work. Here's what they do:

Chloe free-lances at whatever work needs doing—rodent-control, bird-watching, insect-catching, supervision, etc. This morning, for instance, she's inspecting farm equipment.

Jim-Bob maintains an office where he does primarily security work and rodent control on a particular part of the yard.

Chloe usually takes a long lunch break and quits work about 2 PM. Jim-Bob, however, only takes a short break and usually works overtime.

Did you catch Jim-Bob in a compromising position?

I caught him chasing some little squeaking furry critter. But I don't think he caught it.

Chloe is obviously in the union.
