A SMALL BUT SUCCESSFUL BIRTHDAY PARTY

We had a nice time with Dad today.  We got there about 10:45 this morning and stayed until around 1:00.  Dad always takes a nap after lunch, so we didn't linger.  He was in a good mood and enjoyed all the food we brought.  Hubby outdid himself.  He...

SOMEONE SOMEWHERE MUST BE GETTING RICH!

My English pen pal asked a lot about my books.  Of course, she thinks I've got a literary agent and a publisher!  So, we bought an extra copy of the latest book for her.  I wrote a nice letter to go with it, telling her all about CreateSpace.com,...
