I'm a Rambling (wo)Man

“I rambled all the time. I was just like that, like a rollin' stone.” - Muddy Waters

There are days...

I just read a quote on a blog that said, in part, "...and there will be even more of a problem like the whole Prohibition deal back in the 50's." THE FIFTIES??? Dear God.

I've just discovered the big downside to homeschooling. My daughter is getting insistent about knowing where babies come from ("But how do they get into the mommy's uterus?"). And I can't just have someone else teach her. I suppose that should be an "upside", right? At least I know what she's learning?? *sigh*

It's supposed to snow like crazy here tonight and tomorrow. What's up with that? Tease us with 75 degree weather one day, then ... WHAM!! That's really not nice.

I wrote 3000 words over the past two days on my new "secret" project. I discovered that I like writing backward and forward at the same time. Yesterday I wrote the next two scenes at the beginning and then wrote my epilogue. The cool thing is that writing the end helped me name the story (for now): "A Family Melody". I wrote a scene in the middle, too. In case you're wondering, Sally had her baby. A boy. They're healthy and hale. Of course, the boy has four legs... looks just like his mama. He doesn't have a name yet. Anyone have a suggestion?

Charity shares the Rules for Visiting Hades. You just need to Flash Your Cash and get a copy of the anthology to find out the secret. See her blog post for details.

Feel like winning some stuff? A couple Wild Rose Press authors are having contests:

Brandy Jordan is having a spa goodies giveaway.

Terry O'Dell is having a "choose your own prize" giveaway -- the winner can pick any one of her Wild Rose stories.

And in case you wondered:

You Are Italian Food

Comforting yet overwhelming.
People love you, but sometimes you're just too much.

And I can breath easy and cancel that life insurance policy because:

You Will Die at Age 94

Congratulations! You take good care of yourself.
You're poised to live a long, healthy life.

Happy Friday!

Thanks for the shout out. Hope you have a good writing day and that the snow misses you guys. We had a dusting last night, but nothing big.

Oh, Lord. Prohibition in the '50s? I don't know whether to scream or roll around on the ground laughing. Of course, having researched it a lot for my 1920s book, maybe I'm more sensitive than most. But still. *g*

*hugs* on the snow possibility! That's just WRONG.

I'm Mexican Food. "Spicy yet dependable. You pull punches, but people still love you."

And I'm gonna kick the bucket in 18 years. *g*
