Anybody who has been reading the blog for very long knows that there’s not much that Miss Terry can’t do. From building all the cabinets and doing all of the interior work on our MCI bus conversion to replacing a window in a friend’s truck, to maintenance around the house, if it needs done, Terry can do it.
And if you’ve read the blog that long, you also know that I have absolutely no ability with things mechanical, and giving me a power tool would be the equivalent of handing a monkey a hand grenade with the pin pulled out of it. Yes, I really am that clumsy. So when I saw this shirt on Amazon last week, I just knew I had to order it for Terry, and it came yesterday. That says it all, doesn’t it?
About the only thing I can do to earn my keep is string words together in a manner to create stories that people seem to enjoy reading. That’s what I was doing yesterday, making some changes to a couple of the chapters of my current work in progress, Big Lake Drunk, and writing another 2,000 words or so. Terry says that her eyes are beginning to stabilize enough after her cataract surgery that hopefully, in another day or two, she will be able to get back to editing and proofreading.
Speaking of my books, Scarlett got the formatted files for the print version of Pucker Factor back to me, and I will be getting it ready to upload to Amazon very soon. Once it goes live, I will let everybody know.
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.
Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Dog’s Run, my mystery set in a small Ohio town in 1951. I have 36 novels out, as well as 11 nonfiction books, and I have to say that Dog’s Run is my favorite. It’s a gritty tale that is loosely based upon an actual crime that took place in that part of the country when my father was a young police officer there, and I warn you in advance that there’s some rough language, but it’s appropriate to the time and place.

Thought For The Day – Wouldn’t it be nice if the earth was flat? That way, we could just push off the people we don’t like.
