Yes, seriously, that’s the title of my blog today, because I don’t have time to be original or witty.
There are circumstances of which I must take advantage. I have the house to myself for three days! Hooray!! That means, in no particular order: no cooking, write when I like, watch all the preseason football I can possibly want, eat when I’m hungry, stay up until all hours, and read until I can’t see straight. (Oh, can’t forget to feed the cats…)
Right now I’m working on my blog interview with Kris Yankee, which will appear here on Wednesday, Aug. 31st. All comments will be read, then Kris and I will decide on the best comment. That contributor will win a free copy of her book, Saving Redwind: A Wallpaper Adventure.
If you want to find out more about me, I’m interviewed on her blog tomorrow, Monday, August 29th. http://adventuresthatscore.blogspot.com
Gleaned a lot of useful book information from our Property Owners’ Association meeting yesterday. Seems a fairly esoteric source for a children’s book; however, Moochie Mockingbird’s next adventure involves rescuing animals from a Texas wildfire. Our POA is in the process of making the entire ranch a Firewise Community and we were receiving valuable information from the local firefighters and emergency district gurus. I love it when unexpected qualified sources show up like that!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Moochie Mockingbird series of children’s books, Moochie is a talented bird who speaks all the animal languages…except human. He travels Texas and always seems to come across someone who needs assistance. Although the stories are “tall tales,” the locations, animals, and circumstances are based in fact and I won’t change a reality for the sake of the story. Hence, having good wildfire information for the next book was a critical need. Now I’ve got it, albeit unexpectedly.
All that having been said, y’all have a great day. Pray for those in the path of Hurricane Irene. Send assistance to the Red Cross, if you have the means.
And read this blog on Wednesday to find out all about Kris Yankee!
