Heartwarming Small-Town Romances and Thrilling Mysteries

I started this blog in June 2014 because someone told me I should do that as an author. Doing the math (using a calculator for accuracy), that’s 468 weeks of blogs. I’ve missed a few here and there due to travel and other things, so I used the MS Excel program to find out how many actual blogs I’ve posted. This, my friends, is number 456.

I have no special wisdom or excitement to offer other than my everyday life and opinions. For me, this blog is like writing a weekly letter to all my friends. Here’s the news on this home front and what’s going on here. I get to share our travels which I love doing. I get to share how my books are going or not going. I get to share that I should have a new book out this summer. That’s exciting to me, and I hope to you. Overall, I’m sharing myself with my readers and friends. That’s what this blog is all about and explains why it’s not “famous” which is okay with me.

Now, new “someones” are telling me I should pick a message and stick with it. They say I should talk about writing, editing, publishing, or marketing. While I know way more about those things than I did in June 2014, topics like that sound boring to me. If I want to know about them, I’ll go to some famous blogsite and read it. If anyone reading this wants to talk about those things, send me an email and let’s do it.

Blog number one was posted ten days after I retired in 2014. Wow! I didn’t realize that until I looked it up. Shortly after, I talked about dealing with aging parents. Funny how I’m still having those same problems ten years later. I took you with me to Ireland and Europe (see the posts of October and November 2016). I took you to Oregon, Gettysburg, Shiloh, and points near and far. I hope you’ve enjoyed the travels.

As I close this week’s letter to you, I say thank you for coming along with me. It’s been a blast, and I hope it will be in the future as well. You never know where I’ll end up next.

And He said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me and I have nothing to set before him?……because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needs. Luke 11:5-6, 8
