Thank you, thank you!

Having so many friends turn up to support me and my memoir, Finding the Good, at the book party last week overwhelmed me. It was a writer’s dream. For you to brave the wind, fight for a parking place, and spend your money for my book all for a piece or two of fabulous chocolate filled my heart with joy. Although Barney and I were both exhausted when we got home, we watched our feet.


Yesterday as I looked out at my patio, I noticed a chipped spot in the concrete resembling the shape of a pair of eye glasses.

That can’t be, I thought as I remembered the fall I took in October. My face didn’t hit hard enough to chisel out a piece of concrete, did it?

Shaking my head, it didn’t seem possible.. I took my glasses off before I laid them on the depression in the floor of the patio.

“Hmmm. That’s a fit.”

 I was cutting down the clematis plant growing on a trellis at the foot of the patio. Carrying a huge load of branches and leaves, I didn’t see the step up from the gravel around the plants to the base of the patio. My foot only raised enough to catch on the concrete edge.

That’s when I broke my nose, blacked my eyes, and scratched my glasses.

Now that it’s spring, you’re out working in your yard and planting a wonder of a garden, but be sure to watch your feet!


Have you read it? I would really like to hear your comments – both good and bad. You can write them in the comment section at the bottom of the page or send them directly to me by using the return arrow at the top of this page.

If you don’t have the book, Finding the Good, you can get a signed copy from me, or it’s available on my website for a special price to cover shipping. Amazon also carries the book, and it will be available at Ft. Caspar beginning next week.

Until next time, thanks for being a friend.
