About me

Location Georgia, United States
Introduction 6/7/17 Gee, this blog turned six at the end of March, so it's time to do another update here. Starting with a brand new up-to-date profile pic. (Only had to take a bazillion to get one that doesn't look entirely like a horse's patootie... must be something wrong with that darned camera.) I may be six years older than when this blog started, but I'm still as much of a pathological optimist as I've ever been. It's been four years since "Hot Flashes and Cold Lemonade" was published, and I'm still happy with how that's going. Or NOT going, depending on how you look at it. (TOLD ya I'm an optimist... weren't you paying attention?) I have a weird sense of humor, a fantastic family, a baker's dozen grandchildren, and two spoiled cats. Life is good. And the best thing about blogging? You guys. Thanks so much for letting me share the blogosphere with you. It's been a blast. Which reminds me: I'm working on another book, tentatively titled "Blast Rites." With any luck, I may get it and two more books of the intended trilogy-to-be finished before I'm pushing up daisies. If not? No problem. Either way, I plan to enjoy every daisy I encounter. Life is good.
