First, a confession….. As many of you know, I’m never wrong. I once thought I was wrong, but as it turned out, I was mistaken. I have no idea what any of this has to do with today’s blog, but I thought you should know where I stand. (Even though I’m sitting.) Speaking of standing in the right place…..
If you go to Scandinavia, be careful where you stand in the water, and DO NOT go skinny-dipping! The Pacu, a nasty-looking fish from South America, (related to the Piranha) has invaded the waters between Denmark and Sweden. I know it sounds like a Brothers Grimm folk tale, but it’s true, and here’s the worse part….. the Pacu is a testicle-biting fish! Holy mackerel!
My uncle once got bit on the ear by a fish. He lost his herring. (As a courtesy, I shall leave out my Swedish meat ball jokes!)
ATTENTION ELVIS FANS! An amazing auction is about to take place, just in time to coincide with the newly released edition of THE PRESLEY PLOT…… Way back in 1958, when the King was 21 years old, he accepted conscription (the draft) to the U.S. Army. The young lad was eventually assigned to the 3rd Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany. (A few miles from the home of the Brothers Grimm!) Well, guess what? Private Presley’s 3-piece uniform is about to be sold at auction! (In case you’re wondering, the uniform is owned by Patsy Presley, one of his cousins.) By the time you read this blog, somebody will have plunked down a small fortune, as the uniform has already become the MOST collectible item of the year! (So much for Michael Jackson’s silly glove!)
If you should find yourself in Kerrville, Texas on Tuesday, stop by Louise Hays Park and you can listen to me ramble on about MURDER ON MAIDEN LANE and DEVIL’S COVE. I will also be signing books and drinking some beer. Our tent will be set up on the banks of the Guadalupe River, which runs through the city. It is a very scenic park and there should be some good food available. Traveling can take a toll on the mind and body as one ages, but as the great Mark Twain was fond of saying…… “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” Amen, brother!
Have a safe and pleasant week….. Love to all…..
