So We Found It - So There!

Longtime a coming. I'm on a bike trail pounding out the miles. Bridge is out. I'm lost with my wife in no time. Long story short, Caroline gives us green tea and Grant her husband runs us to the next town in his pick-up. This after we toured their lovely home, they're working on.

While leaving this town with threatening weather and such we ask Barb for directions. She later catches up to us on the highway and spirits us to our destination. Just to be kind. She told us how she assisted an injured owl.

I was hit with the fact there plenty of good going on all the time to combat them ol' evil headlines.

Shame on Humanity for Spawning The Islamic State

What gives? Beheadings, Crucifixions, Stonings and Burning folks alive? Where is the UN when they are needed most? Where is the reason for followers to jump on this bandwagon? Nope, we gotta be missing something here.

Odds and Sods

I've been asked when the next story is going to be released. It's out of my control. The story is told but folks in the biz are having a shot at it now.

Latest thoughts on JusThis . . . Finished the first book. Like how it took a turn, completely different than what I expected. Started the 2nd one.

Just Me and Some Great Afghanistan Food

Man I gotta tell ya . . . they eat well in the Middle East. Lots of lamb, yogurt and spices. The Kebabs are to die for. The spices are always fresh. Afghanistan has a national dish, Kabuli Pulao topped with raisins, carrots and pistachios. It's something else. Goat is also served kinda like pulled pork. I loved it all. Notice everybody declined to be photographed with that American. Oh well . . . it's a tough job but someone has to do it.

Strange Times

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is cooling his heels headed to death row. Since Adam Lanza killed 20 unarmed, helpless kids and staff in Sandy Hook . . . There have been 72 mass shootings in America, the land of the brave. Micheal Slager used his police powers to gun down an unarmed man. Now Dylann Roof wants to be somebody in the headlines and bravely (NOT) goes into a church and kills 9 to make it into the news big-time.

Currently there are screams for the Confederate Flag to come down. What about the mechanism of death? Oh wait . . . the founding fathers gave us the right to run around armed to the teeth. For a second there I thought it was about money, big money, purchasing the silence of our elected officials and pushing its agenda.

Gosh . . . are you proud to be an American where at least we are free to be killed anywhere at anytime?

Running 4 Office

I've been approached to run for a School Board. Apparently something like 380 graduates with a 72 dropping out isn't cutting it. Some find high taxes and one cover up after another as not appealing either. Me for Mayor? I'm to truthful for politics. The way I glob-trot I'd never be able to get it done either. Thanks for the kind requests though. Another book? You bet! I've left the names out below to protect the guilty . . .

I added my most recent Book Review.

Well, I'm 1/2 way thru the first book. I have to say, I was not expecting the story as it is, but having a lot of fun reading it. I'm a reader of every type of book so I'm never too surprised and love reading books from writers I've met along the way. I have always respected you as a person and now as a writer. Keep up the great work!!!

Austin people just blow my mind again...you and Bob need to get together for a long chat...this story is a good one and after tomorrow might even be better..do you have any dirt on T. L. and not the Doctor one...oh the L. family of Austin or a R. B.? are you sure you dont want to run for mayor or have peggy take over as principal at ellis??? is there a new book yet?
