Home is quiet, weather is beautiful

It is Florida! We had a great visit with our sons over the holidays. I have only 95% knowledge of the conversations, but it is always nice to have the boys around lately.  I do know they are ready for the trip across country this spring or summer. All we need to do is set a date…


Our life will return to the normal retirement routine. Smooching and walking, a couple of my favorite things. THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO BEFORE YOU GET TOO OLD AND FORGET HOW!Surprised smile………..Winking smile

Okay my new book is off to the printer. I set the price as low as the figures would allow and continued the process. More OPTIONS have been added for distribution and I agreed to them, BUT I didn’t read the small print about it would raise the price of the book. I might revisit that. Got to wait to see what the final price is. I hate surprises.

It will be an e-book also as soon as I can get it ready. I hope the price will be ninety nine cents. That might take a day or two. I also did something different, I produced a large print version, I want it easier to read.

All my book covers have been gloss finish, this time I am using a Matte finish and I like it. I have one proof and it has a velvet feel.

I hope your days following Christmas are good. Life is great here in the motor home.

We had our grand dog Janie (MJ) over. While the boys were ‘hanging out’  we dog sat. Janie decided to get up on the lazy-boy and I asked her nicely to get down, she did, but gave me a very mean look.


She is deaf like me and stares at the door where her ‘daddy’ Mark departs. She will also go lay in front of that door so as not to miss his return.

Janie is quite the pup. Bet she is a real sweetheart. That is some expression she has, though. Glad you had a good time with your sons.

We had a dog that was deaf once. Vibrations drove her crazy. We had to walk softly around here while she was sleeping.

I'm excited about your new book. I'll be watching out for the ebook version.

I've found that it's easier for me to read on my handheld because I can make the print as large as I need for it to be.

I hope y'all had a great Christmas and that 2015 is the best year yet for you and your family.

MJ looks like she is in charge there, even if it is not her motor home, LOL :)

Glad you had a great visit with your sons, Jack and Sherry, and then the anticipation of looking forward to your trip together in the new year :)

Sherry sure looks happy between her boys. Glad you had a good visit.
Good for you for finishing your book.

She misses her Daddy....
I'm so happy that you had a good time with your family.
Happy New Year Jack and Sherry!

I think MJ has an opinion of you bossing her around. Her expression is priceless.

Sounds like you had a great time of it with the dog and the boys. We had our big family celebration yesterday so it's really quiet at my house today too.There were 4 dogs there too. January will bring some occasions for us to gather again. It'll be great to celebrate with them again, but today I'm enjoying the quiet. Hope you both have a relaxing Sunday !

Soooo glad to see those smiles on Sherry, Jackie and Mark's faces! (Can't tell if MJ's smiling?)

We're still in 'host' mode ... Tom's sis and BIL won't depart for another day ... but I GET to go back to work tomorrow. :)))
Ya, read into that what you will - lol!

Wishing y'all a wonderfully sunny day.
