I am a professional 45 auction player...

I played auction 125 today.  It is a fun game.  The 5 is high,  Jack, A of Hearts, then the A,K,Q,J,  of the same suit are trump,  then going down from high in red to low in black.  Now,  everyone has their own rules.  We can only bid 60 for 30 on being on the plus side,  120 to 60 on the negative side (hole).

Guys at work get frustrated at my play.  It is because,  I win,  and,  I win allot.  They tell me they want to bring me to a casino.  I tell them,  that I find they are pretty lucky at times too.  It just depends,  sometimes,  what you catch in the kitty and what your partner has.

There are some obvious ways to play the game.  There are,  sometimes,  what you hold in your hand,  and depending on what score the other team has,  you may play a little more or a little less aggressively which can make the game.

Today,  my opponents put us in the hole.  They were at 100,  looking for game.  When in the hole,  we have the rule we can go 120 for 60.  You have to make every hand.  I got a 5, Ace of hearts, and a few more small hearts.  I blew the roof off of her.  120 for 60.  I made the bid,  as I caught the jack of hearts in the kitty.  Then,  we made two 30 hands straight in a row.  Game.  Some sore faces in the room on the opposite team.  Cards are amazing.

Nearly impossible and hard to do.  If casinos could figure out how to do it like poker ( eliminate cheating), this is an awesome game to play.  Do you hear that,  Trump!

But,  when your back is against the wall,  you will do what it takes,  to win...  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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
