THANX READERS! Fifteen (15) hits to my blog yesterday. Keep readin' and I promise to keep writin'! Just in time to coincide with the annual Academy Awards on TV, live at the Kodak Theater in L.A. this year, I promise to put my novel, "Fool's Gold" on line; hopefully this year; most likely on absolutewrite.com. There is also a Writer's Group which meets the first Saturday of each month at 12 Noon, Bean & Leaf Cafe, on Washington Street, just off of State Street in downtown New London. Bring your "rags," everyone! Don't be afraid to walk the talk! Speak it back to me when you see me walkin' down the streets of New London! C'mon! Don't be afraid, now! (Denise...Denise Dances...2010)

According to the advanced reports in my Google Adsense account, this blog receives anywhere from about 4 to 30 hits per day; meaning, you the viewers who read my "stuff." Once again, I want to say, "Thanx, Readers!" On Tuesday, March 9th, it appeared that I had 30 hits but I am not sure how many were actual readers and how many hits were due to the fact that we were scanning and mounting photos of Winterscene and for MAAP, here at the Groton Library. Once again, thanx! Keep reading!

FRIENDS UNTIL THE END Groton CT. Wheeler, the Great Pyrenees dog who lived at the Groton Family Farm and became a local celebrity because of his friendship with a duck, has died. Farm owner Warren Burrows said Wheeler was found Sunday morning next to the chicken coop at the farm. He had died, at the age of 17, during the night. His best friend, the duck named Buster, was still by his side. Burrows rescued Wheeler in 2006 after the dog was found living alone on an abandoned farm. Last year, a duck that had been brought to the farm to live was lonely, so he adopted Wheeler as his buddy. They quickly became inseparable. Burrows said Buster is somewhat lost without his companion. In the short term, Burrows will likely get another duck to keep Buster company, and in the long term will look for another homeless dog to adopt. The dog must like ducks, he said. -- Elissa Bass, "The Day," New London, CT. Winter 2010. (During the Summer of 2008, when my blog was first born, I spent many hot afternoons walking past the Burrows Farm on my way to D.Q. Wheeler, may you rest in peace. I am sorry that I thought of you as "the asthmatic dog," with that great wheezing bark that frightend me away. You did a good job, shepherding all of those chickens and the rams as well. May you rest in peace.) Denise...Denise Dances...2010.For more info, go to: http://www.grotonfamilyfarm.com
