Frost covers the land.

This morning we got up to a beautiful sunrise. Frost covered the land. My dog had to go out for a number 2. That ruins the nice two sentences of intro.

Beautiful, calm, sunny morning with the glistening of the shadows of winter soon very fast approaching. Like the hands from the Arctic, reaching further and further down into the North American Continent.

It is never bad when it is cold. Only when the wind blows, then you really feel it. This first week of October is exposed to be a fairly warm and pleasant one. But I never trust the long range weather forecast. Do you?

Talked to another gentlemen at work the other day, about my book. He then referred to an Alan Jackson interview on how he compared my humbleness when talking about writing my books. He thought that was a big accomplishment, and that not many people could do such a thing. I replied that if you sat down and wrote a page a day, you could do it to. He laughed and said he could not attempt it. I reinforced my views for a second time. Getting back to the Alan Jackson topic that he had informed me on, he said that the country singer admitted that getting somewhere is a tough path. This country star admitted that there were better singers than him currently out there in the land, just that they were not discovered yet. Or not as lucky to get through the avenues or channels to reach a national audience. I thought it was a great thing for this star, to focus on those who were struggling in different trades to get noticed. Good stuff, Allan!

While all this made me feel good, in the end I thought about the many people who never make it in their career of choice, due to family problems, health reasons, or mainly the money problems. It also made me feel sad inside, thinking about lost trails.

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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
