We just came back to Michigan from Milwaukee after 3 weeks across the pond. It wasn't a news stand, but we stopped every day at the "FIXX" coffee shop. . . . to check the paper, enjoy a cup of coffee and more than once chat with a writer working on some tome. There was a "Redbird-Redoak" reading on evening, about a dozen writers and another afternoon a reading by a published author. "The singular adventure of Charles Goodfoote" Haven't plunged into it yet but id says on the cover, "not recommended for the Clergy or Ladies of a Retiring Nature" Hmmmm!

Don't know if you still can but I rode a camel at the Cincinnati zoo a few years ago. Amazing how they plod silently with those big feet.
Also, I have always wanted to write an illustrated book following US50 across the USA from it's beginning in Salisbury, MD to the end at Seal Rocks in California. It is one of the last cross country highways that has not been "Interstated". Look at a map, think of the history and sorting the hundreds of pictures you would take. Why are some of the towns "there". who are the people in some of the remote stretches. How many states does it go through, how many state capitals does it go through. For you, you youngster, it is a possible!

I think I saw a big brown cow
I only seldom see one
But I can tell you anyhow
I'd rather see than be one.
Ok, not original but . . . . . . !

I'd be happy to "beta read" Time and Again! Second sentence, second paragraph, note would make more sense . . . I think.

A camera store just opened a location in Livonia, MI. It is next to a food store Mary frequents and close to an antique store with a great selection of older history books. Great store and from the looks of it and the people I have met in there business is great. Makes my mouth water , and my camera button pressing finger twitch. Bought an accessory carrying case and even got an age related discount.

Having worked at one time as a photographer I have boxes of pretty good photos. Problem is they are not sorted.
I really feel that photos are important in a blog. On the other hand sometimes words are better. zilike your smiling veggies!

Hope you have called ahead to Milwaukee County to get permission to cross the Hoan bridge from south, (Bay View) to down town on the lake shore. There is a road close to the lake from Kenosha to South Milwaukee and Bay view.
It's a real maze to cross from south to North detouring around the Hoan Harbor Bridge.

I'm with you on this one . . .the bawling babes in the verizon store. I used to think that TV commercials were conceived by guys sitting in an irish pub, singing and drinking. This confirms that the bartender closed the door at closing time and let them drink until only one could see the keys on the iPad. Obviously the work of seriously smashed writer!!!

Writing about letters, a local author, Teresa A Irish, has just published a book called " A Thousand Letters Home" When her dad passed away she discovered his letters home from europe during WW II. He wrote every day, EVERY DAY, from trucks, fox holes, on the march . . . every day. This book contains some 300 plus of those letters. As you read you get a perspective of the human experience of war that you have never realized. It begins with his induction notice and ends when he gets home. Bottom line . . . letters have been important and years after they are written, their importance seems to grow. How do we capture the digits from Facebook and twitter for future generations?

Sounds like you could get up tomorrow morning and finish by this time, midnight, tomorrow you could have a new book.
