I appreciate everybody who bought a copy of my new book, Big Lake Ninja, and told their family and friends about it. It’s off to a very good start. If I could ask one more favor of you, once you finish reading the book would you please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads? […]

And some days you’re the bug. I definitely knew which one I was yesterday. It was just one of those days. It started out on a good note. After Miss Terry made a delicious breakfast of made from scratch blueberry pancakes (that’s the only way Terry cooks; from scratch), I answered a bunch of email, […]

How Did I Miss That?

Until blog reader Misty Farrell brought it to my attention yesterday, I did not realize I had failed to start a new drawing for the last week. Usually our free drawings begin on Thursday and the winner is drawn Sunday evening. How did I miss that? The only excuse I have is that between the […]

As I had hoped, I finished my new book, Big Lake Ninja, yesterday afternoon. I started it on May 1st and finished June 30, exactly two months later. It might have been done sooner but we took a week or so off to visit my son and his wife in Alabama during that time. You […]

Another Birthday

Yesterday I wished our daughter-in-law Geli happy birthday, and today it’s my daughter Tiffany’s turn. I don’t know where the years went, because it seems like only last week that I was strapping my brand-new daughter into a car seat in the back of my brand-new Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the […]

Even after 21 years together, Miss Terry still amazes me. There is absolutely nothing she cannot do when she sets her mind to it. If you need a cake baked, something put together or taken apart, a room painted, or a delicious meal of homemade Mexican food that tastes so good you can almost hear […]

I have received a number of emails and messages wanting to know when my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus, will be out. It’s with the final proofreader and I expect to get back from her at any time. As soon as she does, I will make any final corrections she pointed […]

Just Hanging

Yesterday was another busy day for us, even though we were just hanging out at home. And when I say hanging, I mean that in more ways than one. I mentioned the other day that our friends Greg and Jan White are coming to visit, and somebody asked if they would be parking their motorhome […]

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 […]

Happy Birthday Terry!

This is a very special day at our house because it is Miss Terry’s birthday. I won’t tell you how old she is, because I guess ladies aren’t supposed to want you to do that. But I will say that if she was a highway going from Chicago to LA, we’d all be getting our […]
