Christmas Crud – The Gift That Keeps On Giving

cedarAh, Christmas! When nobody wants to miss the party, so everybody comes home with whatever diseases everybody else is carrying!

~cough! snort! wheeze! ah-ah-ah-CHOO!~

So have yourself a merry little incubation period. I’ll probably feel better long about Epiphany. Meanwhile, I’ll be here every day, unless we have like a freakin’ blizzard and lose power or something wintery and jolly like that.

FORCE OF HABIT is still free for Kindle today. Go get one. A book, I mean. You don’t need a Kindle; you can download a free Kindle reading app. ~honk~

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character catches an irritating virus from another character.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Sorry about the Crud du Jour.

    Do you recall the Spiderman issue where he caught the flu and still had to go out and face ALL the annoying crap Spidey always has to face?

    Well, at least with the mask, he probably wasn’t contagious!

    Get better soon.

    P.S. They are saying Tamiflu doesn’t help all that much better than a placebo. SO—- Take one Placebo and a nice stiff drink and get plenty of rest. Kay?

      I DO remember that issue! The mask sounds like a good idea. And so does the nice stiff drink. Soon as we get home from the doc. 🙂

    Cough! Snort! Wheeze! ah-ah-ah-CHOO???

    Sounds like the 1960’s Batman originated this cold. That’s the guy to blame!
