What good is life without laughter?

Glad to be back in Arizona. On the plus side: the temperature in The Valley (aka Phoenix) is to be 74 degrees today. On the minus side: the weather qualities just below hazardous– not the best for someone like me, who has a couple of lung issues from an early childhood fungal infection, which scarred my lungs.

We loved visiting our kids and grandkids in Michigan and Ohio. That was, of course, the plus side. On the minus side, the temperatures ranged from -3 all the way up to a balmy 15 degrees.

Many thanks to my hometown of East Jordan, Michigan. As a vendor at the Portside Arts Fair, I had the best day I’ve every had at a fair, festival or famers market. It was fun to share my new book with so many friendly people.

Have been in Arizona a little over two weeks and have sold 202 books, 157 of which were copies of my newest book, The Cochise County Cat: A true Arizona Tale. Yippee!

Today I received an electronic proof of new book, Bonita Finds a Forever Home. Don’t know how many weeks will pass before I have an actual book in hand.

Counting My Blessings

Several horrible things have occurred recently that make me realize once again how fortunate I am. Though I’m not exactly young, I’m still healthy and able to do everything I want to do. Yippee!
