A sale just after a sale occurs.

Did you ever go to a store,  buy something,  and the next day it comes on special!  This is just what happened to yours truly,  this past Thursday.  We have a Canadian Tire store ( Hardware, automotive),  a store that every man loves to shop in.  And,  big specials usually come out every week on tools.  And, of course,  the best part was that the wife always tells me,  "Wait till it comes on special.  Do not buy it now".  That echoes, again and again in my head,  like a slogan of my defeat in a crusade somewhere in a department store, where my credit cards are maxed out and I have only pennies in my wallet.  As I cringe down to defeat!

I bought two garage door openers,  this past Thursday,  at a price of 260 dollars each.  The next day,  they come on special,  at 199.  To my chagrin,  I realized I was duped out of 122 dollars,  then some tax on top of that.  Here in Canada we have a sales tax of varying degrees,  depending in which province you live in.  Ours is 13 %.

Now,  I have heard tell of people from work,  who took the items back with the receipt when such a sale was pending within a few days.  I will try this Monday,  as I am working these miserable night shifts,  which keeps me from keeping ahead of my duties around the house.   Working night shifts must be the worst to burn time away from your life.  You have to try to sleep all day,  then you do not feel like doing any business during the day.  Before,  I would try to do a little,  but now that I am close to 40,  I try to ease off as much as I can.

For my bad writing habits and changing the subject too fast,  no news on the book... 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"
