Before I get into the blog, I want to wish a happy birthday to a very special young lady. Today our beautiful granddaughter Hailey turns twelve. Wow, where does the time go? Happy birthday Hailey. We love you!
Today is our last day at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort and I don’t know where the last two weeks went. There was a lot more we wanted to get done but we ran out of time and energy.
We had planned to make a day trip to Charleston and wanted to get back down to Savannah again but I guess we’re getting old because since we mailed out the new issue Monday, all we have done is stay home and veg out. I got a lot of writing done and Terry caught up on bookkeeping. I don’t think that chore ever ends.
We also watched a lot of local TV, and I’ll sure be happy when the midterm elections are over and they stop running campaign commercials on the television every other minute. I’m getting nostalgic for the TV commercials from attorney’s wanting us to sue somebody for something!
Several of you have asked me if I think Dish Network is ever going to restore distant network service for fulltimers, which we all lost when All American Direct went out of business back in February. At that time somebody at Dish media relations told me that they were in negotiation with several companies to provide DNS service to qualifying Dish customers. Time has proven that to be untrue. And after stringing me along for a couple of months they would not even take my calls. Short of replacing or converting our Wingard Trav’ler to receive DirecTV, we have adjusted to contacting Dish each time we move and having them switch us to the local networks. It’s a pain and I miss having both east and west network feeds, but it is what it is.
I have to brag a little bit here. As of last night, Big Lake books currently occupy three out of the top four positions in their category on Amazon. And the other two books in the series occupy positions #28 and #71 in their category! And it’s all due to you folks, who read my books, leave reviews, and tell your friends about them. I appreciate you helping spread the word.
It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to start a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Rift in the Races, Book 2 in my friend John Daulton’s Galactic Mage Series.
