I'm a Blabbermouth

Some might think that is a bad thing, but since it helped me win a contest over at www.barbaradelinksy.com , it's a title that I will wear with honor. I told some friends about the contest and Ms. Delinksy's new book, and I'm the winner! I will recieve a signed copy of the new book, a copy of the cover....and a phone call! That is awesome! I can't think of what I would say, but I guess I'll just be honest. She is an inspiration to me having published her first book in her 30's. Besides that she writes great stories with meaning and feeling and realistic characters. I feel I learn something from each book, and I hope that I am able to convey that in a quick phone conversation. I'll post again after the actual conversation. I hope I don't blubber like an idiot.

What's coming....

I've got a couple of things in line for this blog and a fun idea for the summer (but right now that's a secret). Lyric is doing an 80's themed performance this spring. They are practicing the dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller. She had me draw her some 80's outfits last night. (Draw being a relative term because Art was never my best sugject). She's thinking long sweater, leggings, bangles. It will be fun to help her pull that outfit together. I also pulled out my 80's lyric trivia book (looking for pix) and found some funny, funny stuff. So, once a week or so, I'm going to post some 80's lyric trivia. Check back and you can play along.

The summer project is going to be a compilation thing. I can't give out too many details right now, but I can say that it is going to be fun. I'll get to work with Ally, do something fun and ...well, maybe there is no and. Anyway, keep checking back for info on that this spring.

Vamplitude- buy it today

Here's a quick snyposis of a new book that is available for all to devour. If you like what you read, click on the link below and order a copy. This book is written by an e-friend of mine, and I'm all about helping her promote it!

A strange blanket of uncertainty falls over Exeter. The weather becomes unpredictable.
Strangers invade the town. Psychological chaos ensues.
There is a fork at the end of every road with no path being the clear option to crawl down.
The beautiful town turns black as darkness sets in to reinvent the future.

Kristoph is a talented Rock Star.

He has seen the world unfold, witnessing the greatest of miracles as well as the bowels of misery.
On the surface his fame and power cannot break his emotional barrier, void of passion, void of acceptance, and void of purpose.
He is grand in stature yet his handsome, youthful appearance is a symptom, and a reminder of the man he longs to be.
He is not alone in what ails him, but unknowingly, he is the catalyst to his own recovery.

Sarah is as beautiful as the small town she lives in. The loss of her mother during her childhood haunts her.
Between the silent fits of rage she feels for her father, she can only dream of knowing what it would have
been like to have him guide her into adulthood. Abandoned, naive, and gentle she gets
through her sheltered life with the help of her best friend Peter, and her legal guardian Carmilla.

Peter, the Priest is as devoted to Sarah as any Priest should be to their chosen path.
He has comforted Sarah since her cruel childhood, but is unable to do the same for himself.

Snow, snow and more snow

These pix are actually from the last snow dump! (New Years Day??) I'll have to take some new ones, but I thought you might like to see these. That's Baby peaking out and Fisher standing up in side. This was in our front yard for a couple of days before it melted. We might get to do another one with all the new snow fall.
