LESSONS FROM LUCY

Lucy and her book

So here's Lucy with my new book Lessons from Lucy, which basically explains why Lucy (a dog) is smarter than I (technically a human). The book will be published on Tuesday, April 2, but we're having a pre-publication kickoff event on, appropriately enough, April 1, at 7:30 p.m. at Coral Gables Congregational Church. The event is hosted by Books & Books, and although Lucy won't be there -- she'll be home reading -- there will be rescue dogs that YOU CAN ADOPT thanks to the wonderful dog-loving folks of Friends of Miami Animals. So you can get a book AND (Why not?) a dog.

After that I'll be going on a nationwide book tour that will probably result in my demise, while Lucy lounges around the house emitting dog farts and occasionally barking at the mail person as part of her ongoing, and so far successful, effort to keep the mail person from attacking the household. These are the roles we have chosen.

Anyway, I hope to see some of you out there on the road, assuming I am still alive when I get to your city.

Lessons From Lucy will also be available as an audiobook, read by me. Pre-order your copy for delivery on April 2nd:

SIX OF ONE...

A British Airways flight destined for Dusseldorf in Germany has landed in Edinburgh by mistake, after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly.

The passengers only realised the error when the plane landed and the "welcome to Edinburgh" announcement was made.

THERE MAY BE A PARTY FIRST

The U.S. Coast Guard on Friday is planning to offload around 27,000 pounds of cocaine seized recently during operations off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America.  The drugs have an estimated value of around $360 million and will be sent for destruction after it's brought to the Coast Guard's base in Miami Beach, Florida.

(Thanks to Not My Usual Alias, who says "so if there is another shutdown, the Coast Guard will get paid.")
