Howdy do! I have returned from my hiatus, or rather I should say my vacation, somewhat refreshed and recharged. For those of you who might have missed my response to Arlee Bird's comment on a post from three weeks ago, I was on vacation. I started prepping the week of June 26th and left on July 2nd.
The main stop on the road trip was Cooperstown, NY to check the Baseball Hall Of Fame. That was followed by the mother-in-law of all road trips, in which we drove 1967.2 miles round trip and visited in the following order: Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut.
I'll talk more about the road trip in the coming weeks, but I want to leave you with a few impressions that were made onto me during my vaca:
- No matter what Golden Arches you may visit in these 50 States, you will always find a group of men above the age of 55 gossiping.
- Cigarettes are roughly 50% off the list price for cigs in Connecticut (roughly $10 per pack here).
- Shell gas stations are beyond a shadow of a doubt, the scuzziest, slimiest, filthiest places that I've ever had the misfortune of stopping at.
- Even when the speed limit is 75, people still sped.
About a week before I left, Kellie Dennis at Book Cover By Design, finished my book cover for my short story anthology What Is Life?. And I have to say that I am seriously impressed with it.
"What Is Life?" is the eternal question that we all seek an answer to. This four act play tries to answer that eternal question with stories that weave the common theme of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter.
If you click to enlarge the picture, you'll see how the four seasons are expertly woven into the tree. I'm shooting for a mid-to-late August release date.
And that my friends, is all that I can come up with for today. Except for this little item: I saw the movie The Secret Life Of Pets. Which means I sat in a movie theatre with little childrens. 'Nuff said. But, go see the movie. Seriously.
