When I woke up yesterday mornin, my lower back was really hurting me, so after having a light breakfast and whining and moaning for a while, I went out to the garage and hung on my Teeter inversion table for a few minutes. It’s amazing what that thing can do for me! When I got off of it my back felt much more flexible, and my comfort level had increased considerably.
With my sniveling out of the way, I parked myself at my desk and started working on my new Tinder Street book. By the end of the day, I had added another 5,500 words, bringing my total word count to over 100,000 for the book. With any luck at all, I should be able to finish it today, which will be two months to the day from when I started. Not too bad for a lazy fat guy, is it?
And, of course, as I have told you happens so often, my darned characters came up with something else I didn’t see coming and opened up a whole new storyline for future books in this series. My son-in-law Kenny asked daughter Tiffany how it’s possible for that to happen when I’m writing a book. I think she told him she doesn’t know either. Her dad is just weird.
I knocked off just in time for an amazing dinner Miss Terry had prepared. She made me shrimp Alfredo, accented with fresh parsley and basil from her AeroGardren. I don’t even have to tell you how good it tasted. You can see for yourself.
Terry went a different route with her dinner, making a shrimp salad with lettuce from her AeroGarden, along with avocado, red pepper, cucumber, fresh mushrooms, and shredded cheddar cheese. I avoid those kinds of veggies as much as I can, but she assured me it was delicious, and who am I to disagree?
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
