Tessa's, Therapy Dog Update:
Stopping Older People Falling Out of Bed - Just part of the job for a Therapy Dog
Reg is glad Ryn lowered the bed and asked to have his sensor mats pulled out when we left his room at 9 pm last night. He fell out of bed last night. He’s okay. A bit sore. He is a bit shaken up, but okay.
Hoodaddy has returned to bed now, and I'm using his feet as a pillow, or blocking off the side of the bed he rolls to, to make sure he stays safe today, on my watch today.

Self-Taught Artist or Self-Guided Study?
I teach art (have for the past 50 years) and have been in life-long art training for the past sixty-nine years.
Don't mistake self-taught for self-guided, studying from the best there is in any field you seek to excel in and then eclectic and taking what you want from each tutor to form your unique way to create—whatever you do.
Would you buy a house built by a self-taught builder? Houses have blown down in a strong wind just because the nails went in at the wrong angle. Similarly, paint cracks and may fall off the canvas if inexpertly applied, and artists poison themselves if they don't learn health and safety. Knowledge starts with a knowledgeable tutor.
Many who claim 'self-taught' are people who do not credit their tutor or reference source. Crediting tutors and reference sources is something the traditionally trained person learns to do from the beginning. It never harmed any artist's reputation with the public to list those who passed on their knowledge to them.
I've been extremely fortunate in who has taught me.
I'm still seeking expert guidance in those areas I'm still learning—the last thing I want is an inexpert fool (me) to teach me something I still want to learn to do well.
Ruth Randall's novel "A Judgement in Stone," opens with this line.
"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
The Stolen Years Series
From an Australian bestselling author comes mystery thriller of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
Psychological thrillers often deal with characters who have post traumatic stress disorder often caused by a mysterious suspenseful situation as happens within The Stolen Years Series of novels by Ryn Shell.
Noir or hardboiled, often detective fiction is a genre of crime novels featuring detectives or private detectives who see the dark, edgy side of life. As in The Stoles Years, Ryn Shell is writing of a dark side of Australian history these novels fit the rural noir sub-genre. These novels by Ryn Shell are lightened, to make the reading enjoyable, by the family saga story of resilience and love.
Historical mystery genres are often crossed with other genres. Ryn Shell has always combined two or more genres or sub-genre in the telling of the complex stories in her books. Her characters come to life in her head while she writes them and demand more.
