OH CRAP

My cheeks are as red as a giant bowl of juicy pomodoro sauce. I am totally embarrassed by the amount of bullshit you subscribers have taken from me in the past couple weeks. Apparently, I’ve been sending out book excerpts in random sequences. This is not a marketing trick. Not that I’m above that, but this …

LUST AND A THREAT

I’ve been revising a novella I wrote ages ago. It is far better now that I know what the hell I’m doing. It fits somewhere on the fantasy continuum … you know the one with Dune-realistic sci fi at one end and hookah smoking caterpillars at the other. I’ve just received the cover for it. …

GRANDPA SEES A SHOW

Hollywood thinks old folks don’t like movies, but when they mistakenly release a film with an actual plotline, geezers go in slow-moving, mobility equipment-enhanced droves. Youngsters are advised to keep away from us. But if you find yourselves surrounded by movie fans past their sell-by dates, here are six things to know: Old people take …

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

My friend Beth calls Bear Claus, my holiday novella, ‘Bear Lite’ since it is not quite as dark as my full length novels … even a seasonally depressed grinch like me doesn’t want to rain on your Christmas. There are a lot of characters in the PI Bear Jacobs series. I suppose this is because it …

CRUISE AND BOOS

As you may have guess from the photo of the towel animal, Sis and I just returned from a cruise. Yes, another one. As per usual, we arrived at the ship in a state of exhaustion from the task of getting to the ship. I looked out the stateroom window and, when turning back, fell …

Resolution Revisited

Resolution Revisited I’ve been going through old posts and found this one from 2008. I never think I accomplish my goals. But, by God, here’s one I did: I am going to write a book. There, I’ve said it, right out loud so now it is real. This involves the shifting of my tectonic plates: …

Cruise News

If a cruise is working as it should, around about Day Five your brain has made so few decisions that it ceases to function altogether. This leads to conversations such as this overheard early one morning on the Lido Deck Cruise News She: Look. It’s getting light out. He: Let’s go see if it’s getting …

Navel Lint

AARP online featured this article: Understand the Early Signs of Dementia: Take the Memory Quiz. Hot damn, doesn’t that sound like fun? Frankly, I take a memory quiz every morning when I try to find my car keys. Do you shop on line? You know that place that allows you to choose the order in …

Bear Claus & Weed

I am the world’s worst crafter. Don’t know a crochet hook from a knitting needle. But! Here on the back nine, I’ve found a home craft I can do. I’m working on it now. That book cover to the left should be a hint. Yes! It’s a holiday novella starring Bear and his geriatric gang. …

Learning to Nap

When I retired I did not know how to nap. You probably won’t either. As a child, the very idea filled you with horror, maybe because it was also referred to as being ‘put down.’ Of course that made you cry. The result is that you recoiled from it all your working life. It seemed …
