Where did the time go? Can you believe that it will be Christmas in only fifteen days now? And that three weeks from today we can finally say goodbye to 2020, a year that I think we can all agree really sucked. I just hope that when 2021 rolls around and hears us complaining about the previous year, it doesn’t say, “You think that was something? Here, hold my beer!”
As I’ve said before, Terry and I don’t really do a whole lot for Christmas, except for sending gifts to the grandkids. That’s all done, and if they’re not there now they’ll be arriving any moment. We don’t decorate or put up a tree, and even before COVID-19 we were not the kind of people that went out to Christmas parties. About the most we ever did was go to a Chinese buffet for Christmas dinner. It was kind of a holiday tradition for us, but that won’t happen this year, and maybe not ever again.
Speaking of Christmas, my author friend Suzy Stewart Dubot just released a wonderful set of four great Christmas stories from the past and present, and the set is just 99 cents! Order your copy of Christmas – Then, Now & Later: 4 Christmases Across the Centuries, and give yourself a holiday treat. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Terry spent most of yesterday doing the final tie ups on her loom for her latest project, and sometime in the afternoon she begin weaving it. She tells me it’s going well, and I can’t wait to see what it’s going to look like when she’s done. I wish I had a tenth of her talent.
As for me, I wrote another 2,500 words or so in my new John Lee Quarrels book yesterday. The story is off to a good start and I’m having fun with it. I’m also getting a lot of good feedback on my latest release, Big Lake Hoarder. It’s already received 4 five star reviews on Amazon, and I’ve got several comments from readers telling me how much they enjoyed it. I’ve also gotten a couple of comments from readers who read the sample of the next book in the series, Big Lake Shootout, telling me that I’m evil. Yeah, I knew that a long time ago. 🙂

Thought For The Day – We are not all in the same boat. We are in the same storm. Some of us are in yachts, some are in canoes, and some are drowning. Just be kind and help whoever you can.
