Sunday, June 30th, 2013

End of June I have not been a good blogger. It is not that I don’t enjoy talking with you. It has been a busy & happy month for me–visits from relatives—great book clubs–time for pool–peaches are ripe & my tomatoes are almost ready to eat. Nothin’ could be finer than to be in Carolina.
Great time with “Happy Readers” at Mauldin Library last Tues. The discussion was one of the best & they really related to Myra and her trials in life. Really a happy author.
Sat 7/6 Fiction Addiction will have “Celebrate Indy” day which means independent bookstores with Underdog Authors (published by small press or self-published)signing all day. I am happy to be invited to sign from 12:00-1:00 There will be some really good Greenville authors throughout the day —including Deb Richardson Moore. So if you are in our fair city that day, please drop by.
My mission is to “Save the Indies”
Some solid work done on Book III. I am seeing the 60s through Myra’s eyes. I have a time line of major events & there are so many that I would have to write an epic just to mention each. My method is write & then cull.

Quote of the day:
I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure would walk on a cloud without coming through.
Jules Verne

Maybe that explains how my cat (who has never been outside in her life) spent most of Sat. afternoon in the garage—without my knowledge of her going outside.

Thanks for staying with me.

Things I have learned today:
When all the storage containers are gone, it is time to clean the fridge.
When rabbits won’t eat the lettuce you put out for them, you are keeping lettuce way too long.

Came home from gym (yea)–checked caller ID–I had a call from Juan Peron–no message.
Should I call him back? I’d really love to know more about Evita.

94 pages, and Myra is leading me on. I won’t tell, but you will be very proud of her.
Busy fun week. Trying to start a regular routine of going to gym first thing in morning. That means getting up an hour earlier—we’ll see how long that lasts.
Excited to start volunteering at United Ministries again. I will help with GED essay, which should be rewarding.
Tues. afternoon I saw a hilarous play at Center Stage put on by the talented folks of Rolling Green. My buddy, Johnny Eberline was a “guest performer.” Now that she has walked the red carpet, I don’t know if she will ever return to walking the dog with me.
Best day of all spent with my g-g-grand son. (This his term) We went to book store, pool and then dinner at Moe’s. Doesn’t get any better than that.
Tomorrow I attack the gym again.
Funny but I seem to write more and better when my life is filled with other things.

Again, long time. no blog. I am beginning to think there is an evil demon around whose nurishment is eating up my time. What do you think? The lost days have been filled with good stuff. Sunday we celebrated Allison’s on-coming graduation with a drop-in. Wonderful party with guests from all parts of her life. Everone seemed to enjoy. Missing was grandson, Austin, who is very occupied with his staff job at Camp Gravett. One of his life ambitions.
Now I am consumed with spring spruce up. Some I have contracted out, and the easier ones I am doing myself. It does excite me to see white where dingy gray has been for most of the year.
Book is still alive. I am using all spare bits of time to add a few lines. I am not bragging, but I do like where this is going. The timeline has hit 60’s–which is my era. Don’t expect any confessions! Most of all I am enjoying the writing. It is my best therapy.
Saw Great Gadsby and gave my approval. I think this one really captured FSG morose style. My friend, Johnnie E & I planned to see the Jackie Robinson movie. We stood in line for tickets last Fri only to be told its run ended the day before. Sad, that great movie should have packed the houses for several weeks. Now I will wait for pay per view.
JL Mann Graduation Thurs 7:00 at Furman. Most of family will attend. Very mixed emotions—happy and proud of my girl–but sad that she won’t be around as much. Her values are strong and dedicated to helping make this world a better place for all. My money is on her–she will do it.
Thanks for reading
