Old friends

Seven weeks and two days until my 55th birthday.  Seven weeks and three days until I start out on my Great North American Baseball Road Trip. The first three stops on my trip aren’t even for ball games, they’re to visit old friends.  At my age, all my friends are “old” friends.  Just don’t tell… Read more »

Roadside assistance

Today was my first visit to a “regular” doctor in two years.  It was time to get my stitches removed and I combined it with my not-so-annual physical (hey, when you don’t pay for insurance, it’s economical to combine appointments). Getting ready to head out for what was sure to be a revealing visit (full physical…fun!),… Read more »

When, suddenly…

…there was nothing to do. There I was, flush with the thrill and pride from completing my fantasy trilogy and then…meh.  Oh, there are several projects to talk about, writing and otherwise, but between now and when the book actually releases, well, not so much. Now, a more experienced or talented marketer than I would… Read more »
