Five more days and then it is off for 2 months.


This weekend was a busy and hard working one. We decided to finally throw away stuff we have had for 42 years. Several trips were made to the dumpsters provided by the city for residents to dispose of junk they didn't want anymore.


I am going to sell the Iphone as we went to pre-paid, another step in getting closer to retirement. Still not sure why I did that, but I will get use to the new phone or just quit using one altogether.


On the work front, I have a higher than before average of students that passed the state test this year. That was good news for both them and me. Means we are doing something right in the classroom.


I can't believe that summer vacation is so close.


What are your plans for summer? Leave comment down below and tell us.


Was thinking of going on vacation, but will probably not as we say we are going every year and never get to because something always comes up.


This summer I already have one surgery scheduled and not sure what the trip to Chicago will develop after the test there.


This is really a rambling blog this week isn't it?


On the book front, they are still selling, a little slower than before but that is okay. All 4 are still at Amazon for only 99 cents. Only three are listed on Barnes and Noble, also for 99 cents.


Well, I'm off to enjoy the heat of a very hot day.  Hope you all have a great week and summer.


Again, let us know what your plans are for the summer.


Until next time,

I would first like to say thank you to all of you that read this Blog. I started this without any knowledge of what it would be for. All you hear is that an Author must have a Blog, they must be on Facebook and Twitter.


When I sign in to Twitter, I see people posting all kinds of stuff and the times show they have been on there for hours.  Now, I am not going to complain about what they are doing or saying. But, what I can't understand is how they get any writing done if they are sending tweets out every minute and half.


I can't do that. I need to do one or the other.  I am not saying that I can't multi-task, but to be on the Internet posting to here and there takes away time from writing.  I don't have that much time as it is, so I guess I go against the flow and not tweet much and not post on Facebook as often.


I do have one request if you have a bought one of my books, please tell a friend if you think they would enjoy reading it that they can get it at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. And don't forget to say that they should buy a copy.


Also, here is another item I am tossing around. I hope to finish one of the big novels this summer, and am wondering if I should just publish it as an eBook or try to shop it around the few publishers that are left to see if by chance I can break through the barrier and get it picked up.


What do you think? Which way would you go?  Leave a message to let me and the others know which you think is the right way to go.



Looking on the brighter side, there are only 14 days left before vacation starts.  That means two months and seven days of no work, just writing, playing and whatever...


What are your plans for the summer?  Leave a message. It is not hard to do. Just go right down there at the bottom.  Let us all know what you have planned.


Until next time, enjoy the sun, the warmth, and read a book.
