No, I am not playing an instrument, I am fiddling with some roof tiles. Last night, quite unexpectedly, we had a strong storm blow into Austin. The gusts were quite severe, and unfortunately, a couple of my roof tiles seem to have become dislodged. I will know more after my wife gets down from the roof and gives me a full report. (I would have gone up myself, but I am just finishing an important paragraph in my new book.) Besides, this is her chance to “climb the corporate ladder.” (I just hope she doesn’t fall through the “glass ceiling!”)
In any case, I must post an abbreviated blog today. The old girl is yelling for me to hold the ladder steady, and I feel somewhat obligated to help her out. I know, I’m too good for her. I don’t understand why I have to outside and get wet. Do I ask her to finish sentences for me? I think not. Oh well, you know what they say. A man’s work is never done. (done right, that is!)
Just to show you that my heart is in the right place (just under my rib cage) I am going to post a recent book review. The author of this lovely piece was quite nice to me, and she seems to have thoroughly enjoyed my non-fiction history book, THE SECOND MOURNING. In all seriousness, these types of reviews are very encouraging and very much appreciated.
Thank you for your understanding regarding the short blog post. I promise to make it up to you next week. (Please don’t worry, I will never run out of lame humor.) Just remember to go forward and follow your own path. Keep in mind that a wise person never follows the masses. Why? Because sometimes the “m” is silent!
Have a great and glorious week! Love to all…..
P.S. THE BOOK REVIEW IS (HOPEFULLY) ATTACHED!
