Today is Butter & Egg Day in Petaluma. The Egg Capital of the World.  I lived a few blocks from downtown Petaluma for ten years and my first Butter & Egg Day was the weirdest thing i had ever seen. I woke up nice and early on a refreshingly beautiful Spring morning and sat outside on porch enjoying the first cup of coffee of the day. I watched as my neighbors walked by with their dogs and smiled and waved at them. Normal. A shorrt time later a man and two Llamas walked by. Odd, but okay. Then a huge group of kids in band uniforms walked by. Interesting. Was it an emu that walked by next? I can’t remember because I was too distracted by the large amount of children running down the sidewalk dressed like eggs and chickens. Everyone heading downtown. Curiosity finally got the best of me and I asked a passing teenager what was going on. He snarked back at me, “Butter & Eggs day…DUH!” I think some crazy number like 20,000 people descend on the small downtown on this special day. I will be avoiding it. But if you want something fun to look at on the web, Google Butter & Egg Day Petaluma California. We love our chickens here!!

Telegram For Mrs. Mooney (A Tommy Mooney Novel Book 1)
by Cate M. Ruane
4.8 Stars (37 Reviews)
Genre: Literature & Fiction | War | Mystery

FREE for a limited time


On the same day that France surrenders to the Nazis, Jack Mooney–a New Yorker, barely out of high school–hitches a ride to Montreal, where he enlists as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The last thing he says to his little brother before leaving home is, “Don’t forget me, kid.”

Two years later a telegram arrives: Jack, now a Spitfire pilot flying for the Royal Air Force, is missing in action somewhere in German-occupied Europe.

With only the telegram to guide him, 12-year-old Tommy Mooney arms himself to the hilt: with a sling-shot, a boomerang, a bow and arrow set, and an indomitable sense of youthful optimism. Mounting his Schwinn bicycle, he heads for the Brooklyn Harbor, setting a course for London, England, where he plans to recruit Jack’s British fiancée before continuing on to Nazi-occupied Belgium.

Thus begins a journey that one reader calls, “A rattling, high concept, wartime adventure–with a wonderfully quirky and incredibly brave hero-narrator.”

Soon enough, hope turns to foreboding–as it begins to look as though Tommy is being deceived by the Gestapo, used in a plot to expose a Resistance network created to help downed airmen. “Bravery,” he realizes, “is like teeth plaque. It takes time to build up.”

Hearkening back to the Hitchcock film, Saboteur, and the WWII era mysteries of Eric Ambler and Helen MacInnis, Telegram For Mrs. Mooney will introduce you to a truly likable, sometimes irascible, archetypal “everyman” hero. It’s a edge-of-your-seat, hair-raising, nail-biter of an adventure. A novel with the power to invoke the fearless child within you.
