New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to

There are a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

What We're Thankful For - Well, Harley Doodle Barley for one thing!

This is the time of year we're all giving thanks for our
many blessings.

I'm thankful for many things.

Harley is right up there at the top of the list,
of course

(along with his cute dad, Donald - of course!)


All of you.
For all the support you've shown
Meanderings and Muses
and me.

and, because so many of you have told me that you visit here just to see Harley pictures - well, here's my little Thanksgiving gift to you.

100 (more of less) Harley Doodle Barley (born on the 4th of July, 2005) pictures.


Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!!

I love the photos of your little dog. He's such a cute animal and the photos are great. I hope you and your family and Harley have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Kaye Barley said...

Thanks very much, Brenda! and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

This is my most favorite post of all Kaye!! I love Harley...he looks so much like my Chloe (who doesn't have a white nose, either.)

My favorite picture is the one where he's looking behind him and looks mischievous. Corgis are so much fun!

Thanks for the links,

Harley is so cute! Thanks for the photos. I'm sending a link to my dog-crazy best friend and several other dog lovers I know. A happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Elizabeth - I thought of you and Chloe while I was doing this post. Chloe & Harley need to meet and share some nose kisses, don't they?! They would adore one another, I am sure.
Did you click on the links at the bottom of all the pictures? Evie Anderson, who paints WONDERFUL Corgi pictures, has a Chloe too!
Happy Thanksgiving to you, sweetie!

Happy Thanksgiving to your family and Harley. He's a doll for sure. I love the pictures, especially the ones in the snow. I only had four-legged children so I know how special they are. Cheers to Harley.

Vicki Lane said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all of your family, Kaye!

Harley looks like a little fox in those early pictures! And he's pretty darling in all of them.

Kaye Barley said...

Sheila, Sam and Vicki - Hi Hi!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!!!!
How come you guys aren't busy in your kitchens tonight instead of reading blogs?! LOL! thanks for stopping by. Harley is loving all this attention.

Jill said...

Well....I have to say that Harley is up there with Bumble in cuteness. I think it would be hard to say which one is more cuddly. Love the pictures!

Jen Forbus said...

The many faces of Harley! How fun. From fuzzy, cute little fur ball to regal, handsome guardian of the forest. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving together. :)

I'm seeing this post years late, but lingering over it all--and wanting a Corgi all my own! celia
