Thanksgiving

The featured authors are so excited about dialoging with you this weekend!

It’s rather brave of them what with everyone tackling drives to relatives and friends, turkey (don’t forget to remove that pesky bag inside the bird) and clean-up.

Give yourself a break. Fix a cup of tea and join the discussion.

Here’s a summary sent to me by the authors.

After Eddie found the puppy on deck he quickly scooped him up and hid him in his bunk. The puppy loved hiding under the covers and in his pea coat to keep extra warm. Eddie and his buddies got a kick out of finding him chewing and gnawing on their shoelaces. When they were swabbing the decks he would climb into their mop bucket-it was bath time for Bingo! They named him Bingo as that was the Captain’s favorite game. Keeping the puppy a secret was theirs. Bingo was getting better at hiding so Eddie placed his dog tags around his neck so they could hear him coming and going.

Eddie felt that he didn’t find Bingo but that Bingo found him. Bingo was like a guardian angel at sea. He distracted them from the tensions of war and gave them a little slice of home while on board the ship. Bingo was fascinated with Eddie’s camera and equipment. He often climbed into the gear bag. Bingo even posed for a picture. When the Captain finally found out about Bingo he agreed to let him stay aboard as the crew’s mascot for a short time. Now Eddie and his buddies were tasked with finding a home for a very special pup while in a foreign land. This was a heartfelt effort even though they knew they would miss him terribly.

    What a heart-tugger! I assume we can start leaving questions for the authors first thing Saturday morning?
