Hello all,

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Second off, I wanted to invite you to a really great holiday boutique. Forget Black Friday, you can find one-of-a-kind gifts, stocking stuffers and works of art at the 13th Annual Art & Soul Boutique Sale in a classy, no-stress atmosphere at Saint Albert the Great Catholic Church in Minneapolis. (See attached poster for dates and times.) Join us on that first Thursday evening and enjoy free wine and snacks and live music while you shop! Let’s see Target provide that kind of service!

Enter St. Albert’s through the door right behind the saint-and-his-frog statue at the corner of 32nd Ave. S. and E. 29th St. in Minneapolis. That’s one block north of East Lake Street where you turn to go to the TCF Bank.

If you or anyone you know is facing a first holiday without a beloved pet, I’ll be at the sale most of the time to sign and inscribe copies of my book “Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss.” It just may be the only gift that can lift the heart of a grieving pet parent. (Or buy one and save it until that special someone needs it. I’m offering special show discounts and $2 from each book goes to support The Wildcat Sanctuary!)

See you there!


I and more than a dozen pet-related-business vendors had signed up to have tables at the “All Things Dog” holiday pet boutique and animal blessing (with yours truly performing said blessing) at the Dog City Dog Park in New Hope, MN. After 500 emailed flyers went out, event organizer Sue Storms, learned that the Dog City owner has been evicted and may be facing criminal charges!

Resourceful woman that she is, Sue has found a new venue for our event (Yippee!) See attached flyer.

Just in case you were interested in the Dog City Dog Park debacle, here’s a link to the Fox 9 News coverage of the story.

Hope all you Minnesota readers will mark your calendars and bring your pooch shopping with you on Nov. 7! See you then!—Sid

This wonderful story just came from my friend Linda. Her husband Bruce is featured in my book’s Afterlife Connections—Humans chapter. The miracles continue for those open to receiving them. Thank you, Linda, for sharing this!

My mom has been around lately. It’s been just over a year since she died. She was very much on my mind tonight. Before her dementia got so bad she went everywhere with me. Dennis, my x-husband went with me tonight. He and I were together a long time and he was close to my mom. When she sold her house she gave him some of her things. One of those things is a chiming wall clock that hasn’t worked in years, but it means a lot to him so it hangs in his living room. Tonight when I went to pick him up we were sharing memories of mom and (of course) the clock chimed. Not just once but several times over about 5 minutes. Hi Mom.
