Wife wants to paint the deck in November

The wife wants to paint the deck in November.  Just the bottom floor, is scraped up a bit. We were so busy this year, that we did not paint it in the summer months. One expert said, that as long as the temperature was above 55 F all day, you would be alright. He said that most paints are designed to be painted at this temperature, and wont blister or bulge.

When it dries, I wonder if it will crack later on.  We will try it. As the temperature here today is plus 13,  which is 55.4 F. I am just on the line. Hum,  maybe I will not attempt it.  I will check on the back of the can to see what it says as well.

As far as the news on the book,  I have none to report. I will keep it updated here, though, as time progresses. As promised, I gave the total sales for the month of October. 2 books sold in the UK. I sold one book through distribution in the U.S. back in July.  3 total.

Now, those two books that I sold in England.  It is either going to help me in a small,  way. Like a tree, spreading out its branches. If it is good, 2 sales could later mean from word of mouth, 6 sales. Then, 6 sales, could mean later on, 28 sales. So on, and so forth.

What about that story about the King playing chess. The little boy who only wanted, for payment of a job, a cent as it doubled on the squares of a chess board. Where, he started off with 1 cent, then doubled on the second square to 2 cents, and doubled it all the way down for payment to the little boy.

The king had unfortunately, not the money of the 92 quadrillion dollars required for payment to the little boy.  Just by doubling all through the 64 squares.

We always hope, that this is what happens when the word gets out.  It branches out like a tree. From what people tell me about my book ( everyone gave it great reviews), it is a possibility for this to happen. But, there is also a reality that it may not.. I need the sales badly to create part 2.. Time will tell the tale..  Have a great day,  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"
