RAGS, THE BOOK, Has arrived. It is available at two places on or at Create space. Both places it is $13.95 plus shipping. Rags will sell here on this Blog Site for $11.00 including shipping. Just send me your order to our e-mail . I will ship the book, when you are satisfied with the book, you can send in the payment. I will include the address with the book.
I am very happy with this book, its length, content and cover. I hope you read it and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Anyway I feel like a new daddy when I open the case and see the books. I get the same feeling of accomplishment that I did standing out on the road in front of a house I had built and looking where about ninety days before was an empty lot. Funny, I just realized that is about how long it took to produce Rags.
Our weather is supposed to moderate. Got in the car this morning to go mail off the first thirty books orders, there was Sherry’s water from last night, FROZEN, inside the car. That is very unusual for Florida.

WE are getting weller as time goes on. Today I squeezed a quart of OJ. It is delicious. Sun is out, but it is still cool outside. I know you folks north of us are sick of this whining. LOL Betty is rubbing in the California 80’s, pick on her. HA!
Take care, thanks for coming by the log.

Nite Shipslog

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.
The man replied: "I have a flat tire." The passerby asked: "But what's with the flowers?" The man responded: "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. Hey, it don't make no sense to me neither."

Yep! In North CArolina we have Flare Gardens, just ask a native and you will find out.

I have got to have Rags. If you still have my address from "Sticky' I will send payment to ehatever address you have. By the way Joe is a very slow reader but he got into Sticky when I laid it down and I didn't get it any more last night. It is now in my Computer room and I plan on reading it today, or at least part of it after I get some choses out of the way. Oh yes, we got up to 57 yesterday and may hit 60 today but it won't last.
