Christmas decorations are up.

Put out my Christmas decorations the other day. The wind came, huffed and puffed, and blew my two reindeer down. I put them back on their footing, and attached strings and sunk some spikes in the ground. The fine rope and anchors should do the trick. The ground is not frozen here yet, which is odd for this time of the year.

I have a reindeer, a moose, a snowman, a dog, as lit up displays. Then a full tree of lights, a wreath, and some garlands around the deck. The tree in the house, I will have to put up real soon. I remember when I was young, 2 weeks before Christmas was the time when people put up their decorations. It has gotten earlier and earlier over the years, yet in some areas less decorations as what was back when I was a young stallion.

I threw away two old reindeer. It seems only half of it would light up. I replaced them this year with the moose and the other reindeer. It was a little frustrating, as I had those two reindeer only 3 years or so. I got really close to them, gave then names, and even told them my problems now and then (Ok so, he is crazy).

Not quite, but crazy to have bought two more. I just hope they figured out the problems, and will work a little longer than the old time limit.

No news on the book front.. 9 days and this blog will be nothing but "Dust in the wind"- by Kansas...

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"
