I’ve done a lot of things to make a buck in my life, from delivering newspapers when I was a youngster and working in a gas station to a couple of short jobs in factories, being a soldier, driving taxi cab, working as a clerk in a convenience store during college, owning retail businesses, putting bad guys away, publishing newspapers, writing books, and even selling cars. You can look at this one of two ways – either I have a lot of experience in a lot of things, or else I just couldn’t keep a job. I’ll leave it for you to decide.
But it looks like I may be getting into another line of work. I may start dabbling in the porn industry. At least it might seem that way if whoever sent this email to me yesterday was for real:

Subject: powerful backlinks for your site
Hello guys, I would like to make offer for you. Please buy my services from https://www.fiverr.com/seosupremacy or I will create negative porn backlinks to your website and get it removed from Google index. Please choose. I recommend that you buy my gigs to avoid losing business. If you order my gig, I will take your site to top and if no, I will spam it with porn links and get you removed from Google. I hope you understand the serious matter.
No, I wasn’t foolish enough to fall for that nonsense. Someone asked me how I was going to protect myself from that happening. Not a darn thing. I’m always looking for interesting porn sites. Who knows what might turn up?
Actually, it did get reported, but I don’t know what will come of that, if anything. It’s amazing how many jerks sit around scheming new ways to rip people off, isn’t it?
In other news, we had company yesterday! Our friends George and Amy Smith, who own Smith’s Family Campground on the bank of the beautiful Mohican State Scenic River, near the charming village of Loudonville, Ohio spend the winters here in Florida and stopped in for a visit. George and Amy are a fun couple, and just as nice as could be. We enjoyed showing them around our area and getting reacquainted, since it’s been a couple of years since we saw them. Hopefully we’ll be able to get together again while they’re in the area.
If you like a good mystery story, I’ve got great news for you! My buddy Billy Kring just released Degüello, the sixth book in his excellent Hunter Kincaid mystery series. Besides being a fine human being and a lot of fun to hang out with, Billy is also a superb mystery writer. I have enjoyed every book he has released. Trust me, you’re going to like his style!
And for those of you who prefer to listen to books rather than read them, the audiobook of The Gecko In The Corner is now available. Look for the next two books in my John Lee Quarrels mystery series, Badge Bunny and Mullets And Man Buns, to be available in audiobook format soon.
