Maggie Says- Buy More ISBNs

This is too cute. I used the last of my original block of ISBNs (International Standard Book Numbers) that I bought when I first began publishing my books, so I'll need to order more. The price has gone up substantially. Sigh.

But I had to chuckle at the sales page. In the US, you buy them through Bowker. Maybe they are suggesting some similarity of Bowker to Bow-wow, or Bowser, or... Anyway, here's the important part of the page.

Look who's on the right side! It's Miss Maggie. (with John's Mia next to her, and then Buffy, and then Cleo, and then some little dogs I don't know). Actually, it's pretty funny. Most Vizslas would not be larger than most German Shepherds, and I don't think most cocker spaniels would be larger than most basset hounds, but oh well.

I wish this cold would let go. I feel fine until I try to actually DO something.

Funny! Right the cocker is much too big, though JoAnn tells me that her son once had a spaniel that grew so large (and died young) that Purdue U. studied it to see what genetic anomaly caused a giant cocker spaniel.

Oh my, the left out St Bernard and the Great Dane. I guess they don't do a miniature Chihuahua . . .
