99 dollars for internet, tv, and cable!!1

A representative from a telephone, internet, and tv company came around the past weekend to sell me a deal!

What a steal it was! Cable, internet, tv for 99 dollars for 6 months. Then to give me a 300 dollar visa! I was some busy that day, and could not get into the details. I told the young man that I would think it over, and did not have time to discuss it at the moment.

A few days after, a phone call came in. A lady on the phone said they wanted to set up a date to hook up my new cable, tv, and internet deal for 99 dollars.  I said, whoa there, whoa... whoa.. I did not agree to this deal, I said that I was going to think about it...

The lady on the phone said, I would have to call such and such a number to cancel it. That, it was all a go.

I was mad on the phone, and expressed it. Having to call another number, then press this, press that, to get to another human to cancel something I never ordered. I was irate.

It was a great deal. Just that there were three other companies offering great deals at the time.  Good thing I waited, as I decided to go with another company that gave me an even better deal.

I was disappointed at first, to have cancelled the deal. I thought to myself, I probably really lost money this time. But, as fate would have it,  it worked out just about even in the end with the other companies offer..

Just goes to show, that somewhere, sometime, a better deal just may come along someday.

Patience is a virtue, so they old saying goes...  Till next time...

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"
