There is not enough time in the day.

Lately,  I have been thinking that there is not enough time in one day to get things done.  Is everyone feeling the same,  in their busy schedules,  that we are lagging behind a chore that we usually do.  Never went fishing this year,  which is a pass time I love.  I was lucky,  I guess, to go moose hunting,  but it really put me behind my own work here at home.  When you have to prepare a few days ahead, clean your hunting gear, shop,  it does take time away from the regular stuff.  The wife will try to stop me from going, again, next year... We may not get a license at that time,  as it is hard to win the draw.  50 000 applicants,  for around 3400 licences awarded.  Talk about a money grab for,  you guessed it,  the government.

I began to write some things down in a book,  of daily things I should get done.  It helped me keep on track,  and narrow the list down somewhat.  I never did cut the grass yet,  and now we will get some rain tomorrow.  We need the rain for the wells.  I am thinking of hooking up a harness from my dog to the lawnmower, and let fido cut the grass for me.  Problem is,  my dog is not does nothing in order, so my grass would look patchy and not cut neatly.  It is a good thing she pees on the lawn,  as it sure did look greener only where she peed.  I am thinking of contracting her out as a brown spot fixer for lawns..  Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
