Good morning all. Once again we are at Lake Cumberland for the weekend. My daughter’s little dog is blind and is terrified of the boat, so since I don’t swim, we said we would stay with Zoe. Plus we love the peace and quiet here.
I was supposed to do this blog yesterday, but by the time I finished all I had to do, plus throw my rags in a bag, then sit still as a stone on the I75 due to rush hour traffic, we did not get here till late and I just deflated like a blow up doll.
I love it when I am with family. We have such a good time when we are together. After all, family is what it’s about, and with the world going to Hell in a hand basket, we need to stick together.
Okay, so much for preaching. I hope y’all have been able to get some work done this week. I am going to try and work on THE STONE KILLER some, but it is a two hour trip to any large super market.  That’s fun.  But then, it is Saturday and all country people go to town on Saturday.  So, that is my day.  So much for relaxing amid the peace and quiet. I just realized. Today is the first of the month, so it is bill paying day. Lordy, I love when your plan works out. Ha.
Y’all take it easy if you can. I hope you have a Blessed day and we’ll talk later.

Everyone have a great week, and stay safe.




I know I should have done this blog yesterday, but my metabolism was like molasses. The weather didn’t help either. Neither did my asthma, I just laid around all day. But today the sun is out and the temp is going to be in the sixties.
Hubs and I are going to Mansfield this morning. My other sister has her Thanksgiving the Sunday before the actual Turkey Day. Then we come home and have our dinner on the big day. Her son and his wife always come from Colorado. It’s always good to see them. There will be 12 people, I think. Sister can’t come because she has no one to stay with her animals. Thank goodness my daughter stays with ours.
There isn’t anything going on around here in Northern KY. It isn’t a very exciting place. But it is beautiful, the people are wonderful. The ones who were born and bred here. There are so many from out of state here now. Our little town of 1,000 people in 2005, now boasts about 5,000. That is too many. I’m ready to relocate to a smaller town. Well, I’m taking THE HANGMAN with me. Maybe I will get some work done.
Now I have to get my clothes out of the closet and start packing. You all take it easy and stay safe and sober. We’ll talk later


Well I think Bella the Belgian has a new home. A man came into the shelter, took one look at her and took her home for a two week trial. I pray it works out for her.
We got a phone call Saturday morning about Hubs’ sister. Seems she fell down her basement stairs on Sunday, managed to crawl up to her kitchen that evening and was not found until sometime on Monday. She has two good breaks in her pelvis and is beaten and banged up, but the dr’s think she will be all right. The biggest concern now is her heart rate. It shot up to around 139 bpm and stayed there. When we saw her yesterday, the rate was down to 99 and they were talking about putting in a pacemaker.
This day is just he way I feel. Gray, dreary, and sad. I can’t wait for it to be over. But then we have rain moving in, so things are not going to get any better.
I hope things are going well for all of you, and your writing is coming along well. You all take it easy and we’ll talk later.

1/2 dreamah

sun, CHLOE, ETC.

I CAN’T believe it is after 11:00 and I am just now eating breakfast. Left over pizza from last night. Yummy good. My daughter just put a boiled egg in the microwave and it blew up all over the place. Lord, I hope that is not an omen of the day to come. Her exact words were, “As soon as I eat I will clean the microwave.” HA! She is in her room and I am in the kitchen with the dirty microwave. There are times when it is good to be short. I can’t reach the microwave to clean it.
Well, the sun is out and the temp is 57. That makes for a beautiful day. Chloe is no longer afraid to run through the house. She is back to her old self.
I need to get busy on THE HANGMAN, so I guess I will let you get back to your work, also. You all take care and be good to yourselves. We’ll talk again later.



I know it has been a while since I blogged, but I have been nothing but 149 pounds of sobbing blubber for days now.  I want to thank Sister for doing the blogs for me.  I am slowly improving, but due to the odd circumstances, it will take a while.  Bella is in quarantine because she accidentally bit Hubs while he was trying to pull her off Chloe.  I do so pray for a proper home for this beautiful animal.  Otherwise, she will have to be euthanized.

I have started the editing of THE HANGMAN.  I can’t wait for Sister to finish her part.  It is a very good book.

I was thinking about editing last night and remembered something I read in a book several years ago.  In the scene, the protagonist was riding in a jeep,  the driver came too close to some bushes.  She broke off a twig and chewed on it.  It just happened to be an Oleander bush.  Now I lived in Florida for several years.  One of the first things I learned was that Oleander is deadly poison.  So when you are writing, make sure you know about what plants you might use in your scenes.  Research, research.

I hope all are well and you are getting to spend quality time on your craft.  Please pray for Bella and we’ll talk later.





Ferruginous_Hawk_RWD3Our weather turned a bit chilly last night.  It was down in the twenties and a bit nippy when I took the pups out at seven this a.m.  Tonight is supposed to be around twenty-three. We have a wind making the wind chimes dance and sing.  In the elm trees this morning, there was some type of large bird, sounded like a hawk, squawking at me and the dogs as we walked around the yard.  I never was able to see it, so I’m not sure what it was.  It sounded large.

IMG_0740I am sorry to report that Bella has been sent to a rescue shelter per the advice of my sister’s vet.  This was done only after she attacked Chloe four different times that morning.  My sister hated to have to send Bella away as she loved that dog.  But she’s had Chloe since she was a baby and Bella’s jealousy made her vicious toward the little dog.  She would have eventually killed Chloe and that could not be allowed to happen.  She went to a place that will make every effort to re-home her.  The dog is a working dog and needs a job.  We are all praying someone will supply that job.  She is a beautiful and very smart animal and needs all the chances to reach her potential.

2nd THE HANGMAN BK CVRRevised 1 SK CoverI was thrilled to reach my writing goal yesterday of over a thousand word on THE HANGMAN.  Another twist in the plot appeared thanks to my character’s telling me what to write.  Onward with with the investigation.  Secrets never stay hidden.  Someone always knows.  We leave a trail of our lives behind for others to see and know.  Don’t forget to read the first book in the series, THE STONE KILLER.  I try to improve with each book.  Hopefully, I succeed.

Everyone have a great day and stay safe.




Belgian Tervuren High JumpWhen you love an animal, they can break your heart when you have to let them go.  Animal lovers know the pain of that loss.  I am sorry to say my sister is trying to find a good home for her dog Bella.  This poor animal had a crappy start in life.  She was raised by this man in Florida who shouldn’t be allowed to own an animal.  The dog was kept in a pen with nine others and was the smallest so was picked on by the others.  She had never been inside a house, a car or shown much care or love.   She was so full of fleas, she was anemic when Sister got her.  My sister has a smaller dog which Bella is jealous of and attacks.  Bella loves my sister and doesn’t want to share her attention.  She would do great with a single animal person or with a larger dog, but no small dogs.  Belgium Tervuren dogs are beautiful and make good security dogs.  We’re hoping this security dog training company will take her.  She really is a great dog.  She just has a couple of quirks.  I have listed below more information about the breed.  They are really wonderful dogs and need more activity than Sister can give Bella.

Personality:  The Belgian Tervuren is a breed of the Belgian Sheepdog. Loyal companions, the Tervuren can be a farm dog or a family dog. As with all Belgian Sheepdog breeds, they were bred to herd and protect livestock, so Tervurens need constant activity, whether playing with children, going on long walks, or chasing a frisbee. Always vigilant, they make excellent watchdogs, and can be trained to do just about any task put before them.

Activity Requirements:  Tervurens need a lot of activity to remain happy and healthy. These are not apartment dogs. They need plenty of time and space to run, jump and play every single day. If they don’t get enough activity, they can quickly become destructive.

Farms or houses with big, fenced-in yards are the most ideal settings for Tervurens. They will want to be included in all family activities, whether it is doing chores on the farm, playing catch in the yard, or taking long walks in the park. They love to spend time with their people and prefer that time be spent outside, doing something interesting and fun.

Trainability:  Though sometimes willful and stubborn, Belgians are highly trainable and thrive on advanced obedience, trick and agility training. They can read small movements and even changes in facial expression, and are famous for being so “in tune” with their trainers that they can literally stay one step ahead of the person giving commands. For this reason, Belgian Sheepdogs are often competitors (and champions) in agility and herding competitions.

Though easily trainable, Belgians are not for the first-time dog owner. They are highly intelligent and manipulative, and can easily walk all over someone who does not know how to remain consistent with training. Positive reinforcement is the best method to train a Belgian Sheepdog, as discipline can lead to avoidance behavior and stubbornness.

images2It is hard to believe this is November with the warm seventy some degree weather we’ve been having the last couple of days.  Today, it is supposed to be sixty and then sort of downhill from there,  Forty-seven is the high for tomorrow, which still isn’t bad.  My elm tree in the back yard is still green as is a lot of other trees in the neighborhood.

2nd THE HANGMAN BK CVRWell, i need to get back to work on THE HANGMAN.  The story line had taken a couple of unexpected twists and I have to see where they lead.

Everyone have a great week and stay safe.
