Back To Work

  • A new case has come in and I'm up to my elbows in paper work to be sorted and made sense of. It makes life interesting.
  • I'm up to 38,000 words on my new book and this hits just as I'm picking up steam. Maybe a short rest will give me better perspective on the story.
  • Had a great time with number 1 grandson for two weeks. I took the boys with me for some putting and chipping at the golf course, we did the River of Lights show and they went through the Natural History museum as well as opening up lots of presents. I have much greater respect for what Mom put up with from Bruce and Me while growing up. Having two boys in the house raises the decibel level to near jet engine proportions. The house is much quieter with him back with his mother, but he is still greatly missed.
  • Michael Manning is running a series of posts on Ricky Nelson. He did extensive research on the plane crash that ended the rock icon's life. It's difficult reading at times, makes you smile remembering the great songs he sang and the time period of early rock n roll. The hours spent watching Ozzie and Harriet while little. I kind of get grumpy with bloggers that seem to only post videos from U-tube. I stop by to read what they have to say not watch videos, but he has a number of videos along with his commentary that really take you back. Take a look.
  • Russ at Private Buffoon has a few posts about this group absolutely certain that the Rapture will happpen on May 21. I left a comment with a scripture quote from Acts 1:17, and he upped me with two others.

Sounds like things are moving along. How do you like the new job compared to teaching high school student?

I'm not much into youtube posts myself unless they are very short.

You know at least about 1 million times about the Bible than I do but various people who claim to have cracked the code about when a rapture is going to happen kind of frustrate me. Why can't they let God be God. From what I understand he isn't very good at taking orders.

Just a comment the rapture doesn't exist.

I was a lot younger than you are when you boys were little. I was 19 when B was born and 21 when you were born. You do the math.

Yogi, excellent idea.

Yes, Mom age does make a difference.

My friend, I just saw your very generous comment about my article on the late Rick Nelson. He was a generation ahead of me, but I was one of many with a ticket in hand in Dallas that New Years Eve night so excited to see a star of his magnitude in concert. He is in many ways just beginning now to be appreciated, and I am heartened by the skill of his sons as musicians.

38,000 words in? You are very focused and I admire your progress on the book, P M! Thanks again!!:)

Michael, his passing was as big an event fro me as Elvis's. A truly great loss.
The book is one of those that's writing itself. It's just having enough time to let it flow.
