My first buying Reiker shoes

My wife told me that Reiker shoes were from Germany. I looked on the internet, and it does appear the origination was from the Black Forest in Germany, by Herr Heinrick Reiker (courtesy of eHow style). Still a family company, they have operations all over the world.

The shoes are, incredibly light, and for a winter shoe, very comfortable. My wife tells me they will last a long time. I like Clarks as well, and Rockport, but to find a nice winter shoe is sometimes a hard feat. The Reiker seemed to fit the bill, and the style was with two side zippers. I am not used to the zipper things, as I always had laces for my boots, but it makes for a nice change.

They have an antistress system, where the load of the foot is more distributed throughout the sole. And, the shoe is, as they announce, light. I say, it is light as nearly a feather, compared to all the other shoes I wore over time.

Will try to work on my book a little today, as some bills must be paid first. It is windy, and cold, now in Northern New Brunswick, with a dusting of flurries to boot. The weekend, is calling for massive snow storm. The weather reports are so finnicky, that it could change at any time.. Have a super 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"
