In Search of Surrogates

I’m looking for a couple of surrogates.

At least a couple...maybe more.

They’re all the rage these days.

Everyone who’s anyone has them.

Even the surrogates have surrogates.

You know, some folks to stand up...or sit down—whatever position they prefer—for you or whomever and mindlessly smile and represent whatever issue they’re surrogating, when the media starts asking all those hard questions they like to ask.

Which I’m pretty sure they’d be asking me if they weren’t so distracted by all this silly political stuff.

He said, she he didn’t...yes she did....they wanted to but then they thought better of it...or didn’t think at all...or thought too much...and none of it made much sense, least if you were paying attention, which most people really aren’t.

And on and on it goes...somewhere, someplace or something like that.

Official Unwrapping - "The Little Red Christmas Ball"

Way back in March, I had “The Little Red Christmas Ball” prepared to meet the world. All I had to do was push the “Go” button. But then I thought...March—really?

I don’t think so.

Patience, patience, patience", I heard the little red Christmas ball proclaim "Everything in its time. Isn't that the message behind “The Little Red Christmas Ball", in the first place. Patience and perseverance...Shine bright and hold tight."

So, based on the sage advice, only a little red Christmas ball could give, I picked October 15 as the big day to unwrap “The Little Red Christmas Ball”...and here it is...TA DA....

Sorry, that’s all the fanfare I could afford on an independent authors budget....

I hope you’ll check "The Little Red Christmas Ball" out this holiday season. It’ll take you back to your own Christmas past when sugar plums still danced in your head. Read it to your littlest kids, give it to your other kids...and even read it to yourself. As the subtitle says, it’s a story for kids and anyone whoever was and would be again...


Oh...and have a Happy Halloween, too....

Swiftly Fly the Days

A common complaint registered by those who travel this confusing maze of connecting dots called life is...”Hey, it’s all going by too fast.”

Wasn’t I just the new guy at the office, wasn’t I just in school, wasn’t I just learning how to drive, wasn’t I just dreaming about the future...wasn’t I just finishing off that box of Mallomars?

Oh yeah...that I was.

Where's it all gone?

Where's it all leading?

How can I ever keep up?

When we were seedlings, growing incrementally each year, time was measured by quantitative landmarks.

The first couple of years were a mix of wonder and frustration.

Thanks to everyone who downloaded "The Kingdom of Keys" last week.

I appreciate the support! I hope you enjoy it and will write a review!

And if you're able to keep a secret, even though it hasn't been officially released to the world,
"The Little Red Christmas Ball" is unofficially available on Amazon, right now...shhhhhhhh....

The sun came out, if only for a bit, yesterday morning, and lo and behold, there stood October.

October in all it’s sunny, colorful fall glory.

Until it clouded up again.

Go figure....

And then there was a knock at the door, which was odd, especially for a Monday morning.

Even odder, when I went to see who it was, I was surprised to find two of the Zombies Across the Street...mostly because Zombies rarely knock; they usually just barge in and start rifling through the fridge.

Uncomfortable, right?

Tell me about it.

Free Keys!

If you're like me, the word "FREE" is something bright and shiny that can't be easily dismissed. 

Kind of like you're old Aunt Hilda who favors those odd sequin dresses....

So from now until October 4th, the Kingdom of Keys is FREE-FREE-FREE to download on Amazon...

FREE, which means you have nothing to lose, except maybe that image of old Aunt Hilda in that odd sequin dress I just put in your head.

And did I mention that it's FREE...FREE until October 4th.

You're welcome....

Fall is Fine

We turned the corner on summer, sometime last week, and fall fell...again, sometime last week.

I’m not exactly sure when...I was still at the beach.

So I didn’t notice.

But it’s fall now, that’s for sure.

A chill is in the air, and all that cra...uh, stuff.

Pumpkins and scarecrows abound.

And that’s all fine.

Fall is fine...I’m’re fine...we’re all fine.

Fine, fine, fine....

Besides, I was getting a little tired of all that sand between my toes.
