Yard Work–and a Request–Thursday, April 23, 2015

Bleeding-Heart-2I have finally finished my serial about Sherlock Boomer.  I am very interested in what you think about the story.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.  If you haven’t read the complete story or would like to please go to Sherlock Boomer on my header or click this blue line.  Because I wrote this as a serial, with a new chapter every Wednesday you will have to scroll clear down to the bottom, then click on older posts to get to the beginning-Chapter One.


I had thought that a weekly chapter would be fun to read and to write.  I am of the mind now  it probably got long and tedious and boring.  Anyway, I am very interested in your thoughts and encourage you to leave a comment.  This way others can read what your wrote and I have a place where all the comments are collected.


Finally, I have been able to work on my own yard–to do so I have to let my house go—soon, soon the renters will be in the other house. Right now I’m painting the bubble gum pink bedroom.  Once I’m finished they will come!


It’s been delightful to see all the dainty spring flowers popping up from all the moisture we had.

14Just look at the beauty of the sky last night!  Stunning isn’t it.  The storm clouds built around the Plateau, never coming our way.  We went out at 6 p.m., to set water, then got in after the sun set.  I love seeing the setting or rising sun when we are out there on the land.  I just love it.

Anyway off now to get some work done.  Please don’t forget to give me your comments about the Sherlock Boomer–Mystery of the Missing Rabbits serial.

Your friend,

    in a rural setting via the eyes of one pooch, Boomer, and two
    Well done

  2. Linda, I enjoyed the series. You have a gift for making the animals come alive. I really liked that Ruth, while a friend of the squirrels, never lost her own nature as a hunter. And Boomers personality, as always shines through. Loved him wondering WWFD? It did seem like the serial format kept the story from moving along at a good pace. Would read it and enjoy it again though.

  3. I very much enjoyed reading about Sherlock Boomer and his mystery, and I would enjoy another story in the future. You do a wonderful job with the characters in the story. I also enjoyed your sky photo very much — gorgeous.

    • I did read it to my grandkids, Far Side–the 7 year old loved it, the ten-year old said I did a very good job, and my teenager told me he was very proud of me.

      Thank you, Far SIde


  4. to be honest, i’m more of a picture-with-few-words blogger and i don’t read books or short stories much (i spend too much time reading too many blogs!) but i’m glad folks really enjoyed your series. that’s the beauty of blogland – something for everyone’s tastes!

  5. I loved your serial. The story was entertaining and you brought in a lot of things about a farm that most readers would not know about. Boomer has such an engaging personality as an author.

  6. I very much enjoyed Boomer’s saga! I looked forward to each installment. I appreciate the time and effort you put into each piece. Of course, I’m a big fan of Boomer anyway. Also, I think you nailed those squirrels. You portrayed them just like squirrels would act.

  7. Find a company that publishes children’s books and pitch them your idea. Then you can see it published. Just don’t go with a ‘you pay and we publish you’ place. That’s not what you want.

    God bless you all for all your hard work. ♥

  8. I, too, really enjoyed Sherlock Boomer and his search for the missing bunnies! You have a gift of words and story telling, Linda! Since you have so much time on your hands, we’ll look for another story soon (she said with tongue firmly in cheek!!!)! Your Spring flowers are absolutely gorgeous! I don’t have anything but weeds blooming now, so I enjoyed seeing yours!

  9. I enjoyed it, Linda! Boomer is a perfect character to explore and open & show the aspects of your beautiful farm. Love Ruth – she’s a good character! IMO, there are more stories and characters there 🙂 Have fun with it! =^•^=

  10. Great catch of the sunset!
    I found myself wanting to “see” the squirrels! Maybe you could get an artist to render a few pictures and incorporate them with real-life Boomer? Might be interesting! I think Boomer has a great “voice” and can tell many a story! Keep up the good work.

  11. I definitely enjoyed Boomer’s story. You give him an interesting voice and the glimpses of the life on the farm have all the qualities that keep a story alive. Looking forward to more tales!


  12. Adventures of Sherlock Boomer was a delightful read. My favorite part is that each week was written like mini-stories or scenes in a play. The only part that was slightly tedious was the first that went into great detail about Boomer going outside and the scratching, rolling in the dirt and such that in the end felt so good. I felt it was a bit long. Otherwise a very charming children’s story that I could easily see with a sketch or cartoon illustrator. Smile!
