I woke up on the ground, my muscles cramping with pain.Everything about me felt pummeled and crushed, like I'd been squashed by a stampeding cow.


  1. funny we should both pick books about dogs :) sort of! happy friday, freda!

  2. Sounds like an interesting read this week.

    1. Wondering if s/he really has been pummeled or if it's just from sleeping on the middle-aged body doesn't do the sleeping on the ground thing as well as I used to. So, I know the pummeled feeling well. :-)

      I don't see a linky...Here's my Friday Memes.

  3. Trampled by a stampeding cow must mean really, really sore. This sounds like a good book.

  4. Oh you have a very interesting read! I am so glad to have this be my first week doing The Friday 56 AND have it the first original blog post since the big move and mess up with my blog! THANKS Freda!

  5. Sounds good and I like the cover.

  6. Very descriptive! Your quote makes me hurt just to read it.

  7. OOH, that's a bad feeling.

  8. Ouch! That doesn't sound like a very pleasant awakening!

  9. Ouch! Sounds painful...and now I'm curious!

  10. Great imagery; visually descriptive! Happy Mother's Day Freda!

  11. Makes me wonder what the character has been up for sharing.

  12. I'm also reading another book about dogs, The Dog Who Talked to God. My Friday 56 is a mystery set in Chinatown, New York.

  13. My post also deals with waking up on a different place.

  14. Good one, but very painful! I like the sound of this one, thanks for sharing.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Heat the oil in a pot on medium-low heat.  Add the onion and garlic, saute until golden. Add tomatoes, stir. Cook 2 minutes. Add zucchini, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add carrots, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add celery, stir. Cook 2 mi…
