* The Books are Here. The Books are Here! *

My Chicken Soup for the Soul books arrived yesterday! Ron took some pics of me, and most of them weren't too awful. (I usually hate the way I look in pictures!)

This particular book would be a perfect gift for just about anyone. A belated Mother's Day gift, a birthday, graduation, a gift to yourself, etc. It's available online and in book stores. 

Next week, someone from my local newspaper is going to interview me for an article next month. I'm still waiting to hear from a few other people, too. 


  1. Congratulations.
    I would be over the moon if any photo of me looked as good as you do in that one.

  2. Sue, as I said in my post, usually I hate my pictures! Good thing Ron is tall because that way my flabby, double chins didn't show! Ha!

  3. I'm so happy for you! WOW! That is really great!

  4. Congratulations author. Speech, speech!

  5. You posted this blog bit on my Ma's birthday - May 13th.

    Unfortunately, she's no longer here to celebrate it, but I still celebrate it for her, by playing some of her favorite music.

    I think it was Reader's Digest which used to have a column titled something like 'The Most Unforgettable Character I Ever Knew'.

    My Top 3 on that list would be:
    Mark D. -- an old friend and drinking buddy of mine.
    Floyd M. -- my Ma's Pa.
    And Shirley M. -- my Ma.

    How "peculiar" that 2 of the 3 most memorable "characters" I've ever known come from my Ma's line o' the family (including my Ma, herself).

    So, Becky-O!, I see that, as Paul Simon once sang, you're...
    'Still Blogging After All These Years'.

    My blogging has been reduced to a minor trickle.
    Actually, not even *THAT* much.
    More like a dripping faucet.

    1. Thank you for sharing your info about your Ma and her family, which I might say is why YOU are such a "character", too! If I was asked who my most unforgettable person is that would be really difficult...there are so many! Thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment. :)


I'm still getting quite a few spam comments that are Anonymous, so I'm trying "User with Google Accounts." If anyone tries to comment that I know, and it won't let you, send me an email, okay? Thanks so much.
