The writing is going well, and I’m thrilled!
My friend Ozma’s procedure was a bust–she’s okay, but for one reason or another, the doctor couldn’t finish. So she’s pretty much in the same discouraging place and very much in need of your prayers.
Tomorrow I’ll announce the 2 winners–I loved all your comments and identified with so many of them, like letting the horses out to graze and wander after they’ve had breakfast. (My horses are still staying outside, though they’ll soon be retiring to the barn every night. Buck, an independent thinker, sometimes puts himself away and waits patiently in his stall for room service. ) Anyway, I’m picking the winners at random, so nobody’s feelings get hurt. Also, I’ll be doing more and more giveaways as I get the hang of it, so stay tuned.
The comment from Sandi Hill really tickles me–Sandi and I went to school together, and she was one of the sweetest, cutest, most popular girls at Northport High. All around good-natured and kind to the bone, Sandi made even the shy, geeky writer types (like me) feel included. The kicker is, she still looks exactly like she did back then, and I’m not kidding. I saw her and husband Bill in Cheyenne, Wyoming a few years ago, when I was on a book tour, and what a surprise that was! Bill and Sandi are the kind of people that make a place like Northport special.
Jeremy will be planting those bulbs I mentioned today–I’m already eager for them to sprout. Obviously, this will be an exercise in patience, since they won’t come up before April.
I’d better get myself to Parable, as the whole crew is waiting for me there.
In other words, it’s time to head ’em up and move ’em out.
Be happy, be well, and be kind.
