Sunday Snapshot – Howdy, Bub!

A blast from the past: This guy dropped by to visit Mom’s cat, back in the day.

That’s a groundhog, aka a woodchuck. I guess he wanted to know if Sweetie Pie wanted to come out and chuck some wood with him. She didn’t.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Getting up close and personal with a wild animal.



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.

      I do feel lucky. When I visit #4 Daughter in the city, I think, “It would be nice to be so close to so many good places,” but traffic. Pollution. People. Oh, Joey, we went to Louisville GalaxyCon on Sunday and THE PEOPLE SO MANY PEOPLE. We’re probably going to rent a table next year and sell books. I told Sara it’ll probably be bearable, tucked behind a table and a couple of book racks, BUT THE PEOPLE! We did get half a song sung to us by Brent “Data” Spiner. And we got to meet Michael “Worf” Dorn. And we stood THIS CLOSE to George Takai. So cool!
