Wow.Clocking up the miles and sights. And what sights…Some outstanding models for photography. I bet you’re right out of adjectives! Safe travelling.
Saturday, June 17th ~ Moab, Utah
Mesa Arch ~ Canyonlands National Park
It is sweltering hot and TV stations are issuing High Heat warnings. Signs are posted everywhere reminding people to stay well hydrated. Initially we thought about just taking a “day off” and doing nothing, or perhaps a bit of laundry. But, after a few minutes of vegging, we threw that idea out the window, grabbed our water bottles, backpack, sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, and sense of humor and headed out.

Friday, June 16th ~ From Torrey to Moab, Utah
Ash gray hills, lower and less rugged than at Capitol Reef NP
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
Leaving Torrey, we drove back through Capitol Reef National Park, continuing along Highway 24. It was not long before the dark red streaked cliffs turned to an ash gray.

‘Coz we’re older than you – me n ‘im – we can smugly say we are immune from the deep bite of the terrible terror known as the…dum de dum dum… mobile phone. Recently bought a new one and have hardly used it!! When I get used to the b.thing, I’ll probably get just as hooked. Such is life. (Loved your piece, Seumas.) xx
…I s’pose it’s a bit like opening a packet of peanuts and eating just one… or a bag of potato crisps and picking out only a single bit to crunch… telling yerself, ‘I have no addiction to such things… I can exercise my extreme willpower at any time over compulsive behaviour’… well, here’s one for yeez… leave the house to go out to dinner… twenty minutes later, sitting at the table in the restaurant, eyeballing the menu and yeez reach into yer pocket for yer mobile phone… and realise it’s still back at home… I don’t know how emb’dy else reacts in that circumstance, but I now understand how it impacts this ol’ Scots Jurassic scribbler… utter and immediate, total panic!… a severe attack of the immobile phone… Master Gallacher’s experience yesterday evening was a mind opener… it’s not as if I get a hundred calls…

When author C. T. Mitchell and I last emailed each other, he didn’t have the slightest idea that he’d be a TWIG before the month was out! (He’s much more of a BRANCH really, but, like trees, our group’s starting out small… ).
The idea is to write a post, as usual, each month – but give a worthy author an airing, as publicity to a writer is as valuable as air!
C.T. Mitchell, a well-known Australian author of a dazzling array of murder stories – from ‘cozy’ to ‘dastardly’ – has written a plethora of Short Reads and full-length novels, which are listed below.
DETECTIVE JACK CREED SERIES
Secret of Barnesdale Manor
Murder on the Beach
Murder at Stonehaven
The Thin Line
DETECTIVE JACK CREED BOX SET
Lady Margaret Turnbull
Murder at the Fete
Murder in the Village
Murder at the Cemetery
Murder in the Valley
LADY MARGARET TURNBULL COSY BOX SET VOL 1-4
Murder at the Manor
A Sugar n’ Spice Culinary Cozy Mystery
Killer in the Kitchen
Cupcakes, Cider & Crime
SUGAR N’ SPICE CULINARY COZY BOX SET
Father Douglas Cozy Mysteries
Murder and the Mechanic
Murder and the Jewelery Box
SELENA SHARMA MYSTERIES
Murder by Butter Chicken
Murder of a Bollywood Star
The above is, you will agree, quite an impressive list of accomplishments. C.T. Mitchell and I hope you will enjoy choosing one or two, or maybe even more of his books to read at your leisure. It would be a crime not to.
