I’ve been working hard to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, and when I knocked off about 9:30 last night I had about three pages left to go. I’ll finish it up today and print it out so Terry can give it a final proofreading, then I’ll make the corrections and get it sent out to our subscribers sometime tomorrow.
Then I can’t decide if I should start on the next book in the Big Lake mystery series, or the second book in my new John Lee Quarrels series. I’ve got plenty of ideas for new books in both of them, now all I need is the time to write them.
While I was doing that, Miss Terry was proofing the stories as I printed them out. She was also busy making a delicious dinner of red beans and rice with Louisiana Cajun Andouille sausage. To say it was absolutely delicious would be a big understatement. Among her many talents, this beautiful lady of mine really knows how to cook!
As if that wasn’t enough, later in the evening she whipped up a batch of delicious made from scratch peanut butter cookies and another of oatmeal raisin walnut cookies. Terry loves to bake, but out of respect for me asking her not to do it as much, because I have absolutely no willpower and eat anything like that in sight, she doesn’t get to do it as much as she would like. That’s why she likes it when we have friends nearby that she can bake for.
While I have been busy working on the new issue of the paper, I’m afraid I’ve let my email back up a little bit. I’ve answered the most pressing questions that people have asked me, but there are couple dozen that I’m just going to have to get to when I’m done with the new issue and have the link sent out to our subscribers. I appreciate your patience.
On the subject of emails, please, please do not forward stuff to me. Especially political stuff. I don’t open forwards from anybody, so all you are doing is wasting your time and filling up my inbox with junk that I have to delete. I have had to block several people from sending emails to me at all because they can’t seem to get that message. I don’t mean to be rude, but it’s kind of disrespectful to insist on sending something to someone repeatedly once they’ve asked you not to.
