I went out this morning and took a few photos of my yard. The yardman did his first cutting and weed-eating of the year yesterday. $45 bucks this year, Ouch! But, with gas as high as it is and my huge yard, it's not a bad price. My son knows him and he lives within spittin' distance so he gives us a good deal.
This first pic, obviously, is not of my yard. It's a picture of my dad that I found last year. It was in terrible shape and I've been working on it. I finally have it were it looks pretty good for a picture that is at over 70 years old. His 90th birthday is coming up and I still miss him. I have no idea why is he dressed for church and holding a double-barrel shotgun, but I do cherish this photo and wanted OS to see my "pop's" as a young whippersnapper. He died at 43 of Leukemia, the kind that can be cured today. I love you Dad!
My azaleas are coming out great
The white azeleas are shy this year
These are a deep pink and still opening
I'm sorry I haven't been around the last few days. I'm working on my book, finally, and I'm going through CreatSpace to do it. I'm having to do it on the cheap, so I'm doing everything but the front cover, which is just too complicated for a computer idiot like me. Plus, you need a profession illustrator or as Cranky has, a very talented daughter. My daughter, as much as I love her, has trouble with stick figures.
I hope to have it out in a week or two. I do not expect to even get my money back. If you write a book expecting to make money without agents and big companies behind you, you're either very lucky or naive. Of course, there are exceptions. I would bet Cranky's book does great and I know my buddy Linda's book is going to be a Killer. My book is rather dark and definitely "R" rated. But, I will have a book out and my family is going to be very pissed when they open up their Christmas presents this year, hah~~Have a good one~~
