More good people doing good things.
Today is Wednesday, and you know what that means! Time to look around at some of the good people in this world who are doing good things to help other. I have only two today … not that I couldn’t find more, for I could … but I got a bit carried away with these two and ran out of time and space. But, I think you’ll love these two women!
Eva Gordon of Seattle, Washington, lived to be 105 years old! Sadly, Eva died last June, but … many will have reason to remember her for much longer. Let me tell you just a little bit about Ms. Gordon.
She was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, and though she very much wished to attend college, it was the height of the Great Depression, and the money simply wasn’t there. Eventually she moved to Seattle where she took a…

Kawanee is having problems again.
I’m trying to get home to my family, but it’s hard and there’s so much to do. The financial side of things suck, “We’ll take care of you.” Turned out to have strings attached and meant for a week or two…
I was offered some help from my old boss and family friend but… things happened and now I don’t know if that’s going to pan out or not.
The offer of manpower to help load was given but- only a handful of people showed up.
Family members were supposed to come back and help with the driving but-
Workman’s comp claim? Denied…
Hubby’s employer tried to make a nice gesture, but lawyers got involved and that went sideways. Would have been really nice since I didn’t even get a sympathy card from the company but- *shrug*
My landlord rented my house, I don’t have a place in my hometown…

Good book reviews for KARIS RECKONING & THE ROSE SHIELD BOOK 4.
It’s been a few weeks (and a few books) since I finished the epic conclusion to D. Wallace Peach’s fantasy series, The Rose Shield, and naughty me hasn’t yet written the review this book – nay, this series – deserves. So, without further ado….
This – the fourth book and conclusion to the Rose Shield series – delivers action, intrigue, emotional sucker-punches, surprises, and a solid satisfying ending to a wonderful adventure series that has largely followed protagonist Catling and her struggles in a world of politics and influence.
In this installment, Peach really brings home the themes of power, morality and free-will that she’s toyed with throughout the series, and not a single character comes through the battlefield of the series without scars – be they physical or emotional… or both.
The power struggle becomes the epicenter…

Announcing my first non-fiction book!
Well, not exactly. In my long career of writing and editing in the “Federal world,” I produced volumes and volumes of non-fiction. However, I didn’t get the credit for that work. So, I should say that this is my first independently published non-fiction book.
I hoped to release it close to the launch of the third of my Roaring Twenties novels about Pip and her friends, A Ghost in the Kitchen. The launch for that, a trolley tour of haunted Savannah, was huge fun, and a great time was had by all.
However, the actual book fell flat. So, I won’t be writing any new stories for Pip or Granny Phanny. With that in mind, I almost didn’t make this new book available either… but then I thought, why not? I’m not doing a full-on book launch, just…

Cindy Knoke’s lovely pictures of pools in Lake Nicaragua & Santa Ynez California.
Do you ever like to chill by a pool?
Your cares just seem to melt away.
It’s best to be alone.
And stay to watch the setting sun.
Cheers to you from some cool pools in Lake Nicaragua & Santa Ynez California~
Cindy Knoke sends stunning pictures of the first snow in the Holler.
Dusts The Lagunas,
in early December,
as The Snow Queen,
gently tiptoes in.
Cheers to you from The Holler in Winter~
Two more hilarious stories for free. If you want to read more of this zany humor, just rise to the top right of this post and click on one of the book covers there. You can help out Russell even more by reblogging this post on your blog.
Gifts I received this Christmas included the David Sedaris Masterclass Course on Storytelling & Humor, and a book entitled “642 Things to Write About.”
Each page of the book contains at least one short writing prompt and enough blank lines to scribble something on the topic. Here is one example: Write about what you’ll be worrying about five years from now, ten years from now, and in thirty years.
Unless you plan to be cremated, worms in the coffin might be a concern. Or, if you plan to be buried at sea—that could open up a whole new can of tuna.

A new experience for Kawanee.
Well, I’ve taken some “me” time, thanks to my mother. She likes getting pedicures, I’ve never had one. Well, I have now, but I’m a first timer. The jury is still kind of out on what I think of it. Generally, I look at feet like they are things that keep the rest of me from touching the ground and the dirty stuff that is down there. The things I don’t want the rest of me (or even my feet for that matter) touching. I don’t like feet much, I don’t like people touching me with their feet, I don’t like touching my feet and I won’t be touching yours any time soon either.
So, it was with some trepidation that I let mom talk me into and treat me to this thing.
I explained to the nice lady that I wasn’t too sure about the whole thing and that…
