We are almost through this year’s hurricane season, which runs from June through the end of November, and the weatherman says there is no chance of anything happening between now and then. After dealing with two hurricanes in 43 days, that’s good news for us! After making a delicious breakfast of banana pecan pancakes, Terry […]

Never Left The House

While much of the country was up and out the door before dawn yesterday to stand in long lines waiting to get inside crowded stores, pushing and shoving to get to Black Friday “bargains” that really are not bargains, we slept in late yesterday. We needed to make up for the two early mornings and […]

Except for dealing with Hurricane Nicole, pretty much all I’ve done for the last week is read through and make corrections to several chapters of my new Big Lake book. That’s an awful lot of words and I still have more to go, I think one or two more chapters before I print them out […]

The Day After

We had a somewhat restless night Wednesday night, awakened several times by our computer backup power supplies kicking in and out when the power would flicker on and off and occasionally by the sound of heavy wind and rain. But by the time we woke up yesterday morning, the world looked much different. There was […]

While NASA just can’t seem to get it together to launch their Artemis rocket toward the moon, last night Space X had another successful launch from Cape Canaveral, carrying a bunch of Starlink satellites into space. They did another launch just a few days ago. Granted, their rockets are not as powerful and not going […]

Scrubbed Again

The Artemis rocket launch scheduled for yesterday afternoon was scrubbed again, to the disappointment of hundreds of thousands of people who came to see the historic event. NASA said it was due to more fuel leaks, the same issue they had earlier in the week. As of last night, they didn’t know when they were […]

My Eyes Hurt

I spent so many hours making corrections to chapters I narrated in my new John Lee Quarrels book the last two days that my eyes hurt. But I got most of the chapters done and gave them to Terry to edit and proofread. Once she was done with that, I made her corrections and then […]

A 5K Day

No, I don’t mean one of those days where you dress up in spandex and join a bunch of people running and getting sweaty. I sweat enough just sitting still, and seeing my fat rear-end in spandex would not be a pretty picture. Running? If I really have to, I can manage a fast waddle, […]

I spent most of yesterday correcting the last chapters I wrote in my new book, The Hard Years, then printed them out for Terry to edit and proofread. After I did that, I looked through the whole manuscript, correcting a couple of other errors that got missed. One of the problems with doing a series […]

I have really been slacking off in the writing department lately. I started Big Lake Ranger, my 5th book for this year, on September 30th, and I should be wrapping it up by now and looking at a publishing date. But between keeping busy with some medical and technical issues and more than a little […]
