Thank you to everybody who was patient with the problems I was having with yesterday’s blog. After getting some sleep, yesterday morning I tried to correct some places in the blog where the text was running together to form one long word that some people were getting, but not everybody. I’m not sure what caused […]

I saw a news story the other day saying that many radio stations across the country have bowed to demands by the #Me Too movement not to play the Christmas classic song Baby, It’s Cold Outside, which has been a holiday favorite since 1944. According to those who object to the song, its lyrics encourage […]

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 […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Thanksgiving is over. It used to be my least favorite holiday, except for Easter. Even as a kid I couldn’t understand how the Savior of the Christian world dying on the cross and then being resurrected morphed into some guy in a bunny suit hiding eggs in […]

#32? Is That Possible?

Miss Terry and my other proofreaders all went the extra mile, like they always do, and finished with my latest book, Strawberry Slugbug, Monday evening. So yesterday I went through the manuscript making their corrections and getting it formatted to publish. It’s always a crap shoot as to how long Amazon’s Kindle publishing program takes […]

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been doing. And no, Santa Claus is not coming to town. Better than that, it’s another jolly chubby guy with a beard. And this one can fix things! Our friends Greg and Jan White will be here next week and we are really looking forward to seeing them because it’s been […]

Really? A Play Date?

I know I’m showing my age here, but I have to ask. What the hell is a play date? And why do kids need them? I had never heard of a play date until the last few years. If we had play dates when I was a kid, it consisted of all the mothers in […]

Okay, I have sat here quietly doing my thing for months now and I haven’t whined or sniveled once about the weather. But I’ve about reached my limit with it. I really, really wish it would start cooling down. Instead, in the last week the temperature has gotten even hotter, hovering at and even exceeding […]

Nothing Happening Here

I keep hearing from people asking us if we are safe and out of harm’s way from Hurricane Florence. Thank you for your concern, and yes, we are fine. The hurricane made landfall about 550 miles north of us, so except for some high surf it was a nonevent for us. We didn’t even get […]

Not My Kids

I was surprised by the number of responses I got to yesterday’s blog telling me that we needed to make our freeloading kid move out of our house. I guess people didn’t read that blog entry very well. I had written about one of my readers saying that they had let a relative rent their […]
