Keep Checking

As I write this, Big Lake Drunk is not live on Amazon yet, but keep checking because it will be sometime today, just in time for your Christmas reading pleasure. Thank you to Miss Terry, Roberta, and Judy, for all of your hard work in editing and proofreading and getting it ready to go. I appreciate you ladies more than I can ever tell you.

Besides making last minute final changes to the book yesterday, Terry and I had to run some errands, including some banking and a couple of other chores we have been putting off but wanted to get done before Christmas. When we left the house at about 1 PM, I was surprised that the roads weren’t very busy. I guess everybody was at Walmart and the mall doing their last minute Christmas shopping. I can’t even imagine what the stores will be like today, but it doesn’t matter to me because I’m not going out.

If I lived up north someplace like Michigan or Minnesota, I probably wouldn’t go out until at least June. Our son sent me this picture of the thermometer on his back porch, half an hour west of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, yesterday morning. He said he didn’t stay out there very long.

Besides all of the hard work that she does editing and proofreading my books, tracking our expenses, and everything else that goes into keeping our home based business running, maintaining the house, and a million other things, we all know that Terry is an amazing cook. We have been in the mood for some good Mexican food, so last night, she put a big pork butt in the crock pot, smothered it with chopped tomatoes and green chilies and all kinds of spices, and let it cook overnight. Today she will add hominy and more spices, the end result being some of the most delicious chalupa you will ever taste. I’m really looking forward to it.

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.

Thought For The Day – Be patient with the clerks in the stores today. It’s not their fault that you waited until Mary’s water broke to begin your Christmas shopping.

  1. Merry Christmas!!

  2. Because of the snow, 40-50/ hr wind gusts, minus 12 degree Temps as a high, our Christmas time in SW MN is being pushed back. I-90 was still closed last night as were some of the roads in NW IA. Yes enjoy your warmer weather but I’ll take a white Christmas despite the inconvenience. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. Merry Christmas Nick and Terry. From warm Arizona.

  4. Got my copy.

    Merry Christmas y’all!
