2022 will you be good for us all? I certainly hope this year is better than the past two. It doesn’t seem to be starting very good. Winter is bringing in low temperatures and snowstorms. Of course, December wasn’t the best either.

Did you make your New Year Resolutions?  I usually never make any, as I am sure I would not keep them. But I made one, and that is to stay alive. That means changing a lot of things I do and eat.

Do you have any rituals you do at home with a love one?

After my heart surgery in 2019, my wife and I have done the same thing each night when I go to bed. It goes like this:

Me: I love you

Her: I love you

Me: I hope to see you in the morning.

Her: I hope to see you too

Me: Good night

Her: Good night my love

Then, as she leaves, she touches my toes.

I asked her why do you do that. This what she said:

“When you were out of surgery, there were so many machines and tubes connected and running out of you that all I could get close to was your feet. I would touch your toes.”

We have done this every night since May 2019. And will never stop.

I thought I would share the synopsis of Hawks’ Dilemma with you. Hope you enjoy it.


Steve Hawks–The Dilemma, is the first in a series of novels that highlight the lives of Federal Agents who work only for the President of the United States.

It opens with Steve Hawks and his agents rescuing a girl from a group of terrorists. The terrorists are after a senator and kidnapped the wrong girl, thinking she is the senator’s daughter.

After returning to D.C., six armed Asian men have stormed the Capital. Hawks and his team kill the terrorists and go to find the senator the terrorists were after, who denies any dealing with the terrorists.

Hawks and his team now travel to Thailand to capture an Air Force member who is selling secrets to a Russian spy. Later, they go to Germany to bring the spy to the U.S. The president appoints Steve Hawks as the Director of the Espionage, Terrorist Bureau (ETB) and wants him to handle a gun smuggling from an U.S. Air Base to Japan. This brings in Hawks’ love, Sadie MacKenzie. Steve sends Sadie in undercover against the smugglers. All Hawks can think about is Sadie and her safety. He steps out from behind cover to shoot a smuggler and ends up shot himself. Hawks awakes in the hospital to find Sadie sitting beside him. He tells her to call the president’s office and tell them that the future Mrs. Hawks was calling.

Someone kidnaps Sadie on their honeymoon. To see his wife again, he must arrange for the release of a convicted spy he arrested. Upon returning, the president orders Hawks to work on the FBI investigation concerning a senator’s son missing. Sadie insists on working on her kidnappers’ case going against Hawks’ advice.

Hawks can’t control Sadie’s involvement and lets her go after the kidnappers. Sadie’s case leads them to Atlantic City and Hawks’ case turns into a murder investigation. Hawks brings in the senator’s son and they discover he is not the killer, but another Asian man is the murderer.

Special Agent Mike Phillips calls Hawks and tells him they found the kidnappers. Hawks takes a team to Atlantic City and meets up with Sadie and Mike. A gun battle ends Taylor’s life, and his friends captured. That evening at dinner, Sadie tells Hawks he will be a daddy, and that she is not quitting her job.

The terrorists shoot Senator Patrick’s son. Hawks confronts the senator regarding his involvement with the terrorists. At a roadblock, the terrorists’ vehicle overturns. Hawks approaches the vehicle. He hears a shot. Senator Patrick explains he killed one in self-defense.

The story ends with Sadie and Hawks visiting Mike in the hospital, where Hawks tells Mike the truth about the senator will come out one day.
