Help, I read your new posts by “Reader” and all the the comment boxes have disappeared, I can’t comment or read the other comments. What to do?
A whooper swan is our national bird, and also the first signs of spring. A whooper swan is in finnish laulujoutsen. Laulu is a song and joutsen is a swan.
You can´t see the swans, they are on the other shore of this lake, sleeping on the ice. You see here how we use ice as a ice way over a lake. I was surprised that this way was still open for driving. There is a sign ” Jäätie”, it means Ice Way.
The nature has already hint of spring in her colours.
Vi-Purrs by Jeanne Foguth, the Sea-Purrtector Files Book 3
Close your eyes , feel warm winds of Haiti on your skin. Suddenly you see a car, a grey king cab, driving slowly. Behind the wheel is a man, a very hairy man, in the car sits two adult cats, one kitten, a rat and a chameleon.
Xander the Purrtector is, of course, there, the other adult is Sharkey. Do you remember her from the Red Claw? She has already finished her education and is a Purrtector herself, too. The kitten is Mischief, the stubborn apprentice of Xander. The chameleon is helpful Mars. The driver, Rufus, and the rat Scar are from the terrible laboratory of a mad doctor Moreau, who made weird creatures by mixing different DNAs.
Xander, “James Bond” of Catamondo, is again in Haiti to find out that the explosion in the lab really destroyed everything, because they have heard news that something weird is still happening. The Purrtector of the Dominican Republic has disappeared and somebody has an evil idea how to destroy the whole Catamondo. This mission is not the easiest, suddenly the furious hurricane hits the island and at the same time dangerous bird flu spreads rapidly.
Jeanne Foguth is obviously an expert of feline behavior and she compounds in a very lovely way our habits with cats every day life.
The book, as the Red Claw and Purr-a-Noia, has the same two levels, telling how it is possible to live all together, in peace. Just think the group in the car, they could eat each others, but no, they have a mission and they will succeed in it together.
I highly recommend this book to everybody , it is a book of very special cats, but also an adventure book full of information of Haiti, its flora and fauna, and a book of friendship.
Last year in March we were driving around this countryside taking photos. The days were sunny, the sky bright blue and the spring was so near.
Now the wind with wet snow is trying to hide us under white drifts.
So we sit inside watching ski competitions in Norway.
