Wishin' and Hopin': Charlie


On a lighter note, I am a huge fan of blogger-turned-writer The Pioneer Woman (aka Ree Drummond). Well imagine my glee and surprise when I learned this morning that Ree is releasing a children's novel about one of my favorite real life characters on her blog, Charlie her basset hound. I can not wait!

Charlie the Ranch Dog releases later this month.
