What Happy Looks Like

Here’s a happy for Throwback Thursday. Guess what day this was. Go on, guess.


Happy DayDid you guess, “The day MomGoth married Charlie”? If you did, you win the prize. The prize is: winning.

This was way back in 1981 (which began, as you no doubt know, on a Thursday), when we were both younger and slimmer, but no happier than we are now. Sappy and drippy, I know. Yuck — mushy stuff! Ptui! But true, nonetheless.

You like my white-girl ‘fro?

Thanks again to Jane, who is still my friend, for serving as maid of honor. You rock, buddy!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Look up an important year in your character’s life and see what else was happening then.



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.

      It’s not our anniversary; I just happened to find the picture. But I thank you for the good wishes, anyway. <3
