A story of a book:

I found out recently, after ten-plus years of having our dogs, Arlo Guthrie and Ellie Mae, that the folk singer Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie’s father, wrote one novel, about a couple struggling during the Dust Bowl.

The female protagonist in the novel was named Ella May.

We didn’t name Ellie. She came to us named.

#synchronicity is real.

If you’re interested, it’s House of Earth, written in 1947, and you can buy it here and support independent bookstores:

Ellie (the dachshund) was in the hospital this week for two nights. She still has to go back to the vet on Monday, and to the cardiologist, and she’s on a bunch on meds, but she is feeling better, acting more like herself, and she’s home. Things are chaotic out that window, but the babes are home and safe. Arlo has his sister by his side. All is well.
