Staying Busy

Life has been interesting. I am working a lot of long hours and there are what seems like a million projects to be done. I feel the most important project keep getting pushed to the side. I hope this will change. In fact I quit one of my jobs just to make this happen. I hope I am not shooting myself in the foot but “fortune favors the bold”.

Project 49, my first novel has been rewritten. I moved stuff around and added content and will be released as an edition two. I am not sure when. I would like to finish the second book in the series, currently entitled Lowe: Williamson’s Legacy.

I have finished several short stories and have one more to finish before I continue to work on the book. After the book I have one more idea for a short story that I will write. These stories will be released in a collection.

The first edition of Project 49 is no longer available except through me and is in a limited supply. Contact me if you want one. Facebook would be the best way and thanks for being here.

Pumpkin Carving

Anyway, I know I have not been around for a while so I thought I would drop a line and say hi.

Today we carved out a Halloween display, albeit minor. My youngest daughter and I got two pumpkins and a pineapple. I cut the top off the pineapple and used a de-core tool to get the juicy (and delicious) insides out. My Sharpe would not make a mark on the pineapple so I had to do it by my eye. It came out looking messed up but I liked it.

I used a drill with a cake mixer attachment to clean the insides out once the heavy stuff is removed. They say an egg beater will do the same. My daughter used a regular knife to carve hers and she did a really good job, but, I cheat.

I drilled holes in mine with a drill bit then used a electric carver, like a small Saws-all.

What I was going for was the pumpkins seeing the pineapple and freaking out a bit. You can tell me in we succeeded.

And remember, the seeds can be roasted. If you don’t like that idea, toss it outside instead of the garbage. The squirrels will love you for it.
