The Sheriff settles things out with Mattpluck...

The Sheriff then began to reload his colt 45 "I got you surrounded! Come up with your hands up, but please let me unload another six shells into your house! I love firing wildly at things, hell, you just never know what you may hit! Do you guys got prizes in there if I shoot one of your chickens out here that are laying around? A chicken bouillon, maybe?"

Mattpluck got off of the floor and stuck his head straight out of the window "I do not got enough money to fix up this farm, you trigger happy law enforcement worker, probably out here working through a foreign exchange program, or what not! Do not shoot, we are heading out with our hands outspread like the great bald eagle of this here land!"

The Sheriff got up, and dusted off his shirt, and rubbed his belly. He still kept his gun held in  his right hand, ready to shoot "Come on out, you band of pork bellied pen hoarders!"

Mattluck, Minanola, her poodle, then Thundernose came out of the house with relative caution. The Sheriff took off his smokey sunglasses and began to laugh at the gang of misfits he was possibly about the apprehend.

"Listen here, you boy. How in tarnation did you guys blow a hole in the Route USA # 1 highway here near this run down funny farm of yours!"

The four were in line now, as Mattluck pointed to Thundernose, who was just alongside of him now, standing 40 feet from the law enforcement officer. "This here super pouch, did it. Dug the hole out, then slung the pipe to make a new silo to put in his dog food. The gross, wet stuff, that is. Tell him, thundernose"

Thundernose sat there, and just howled out a "woof, woof".

The Sheriff reached for his cuffs from the left side of his belt "Oh, I see. Well, your tractor over there looks a little small for the job, but, I would say you could have done it within a good few days of work"

Minanola shouted "Sheriff, I have known Mattluck for only 10 hours now, and I must say that he hardly works! He gets up at 2 pm, and it takes him 2 hrs to get to the fields to plough.."

Mattpluck laughed "That is not true, Sheriff, I am a hardly working man, that is for sure, and I"

The Sheriff cut him off "Stop it. Get in here these dang cuffs, you young cout you!"

Minanola shouted "No, please Sheriff, our dreams were just starting to come true... Will you have some deep fried eggs, shaken baken bacon, and blown dried toast to boot!"

The Sheriff put the cuffs back on his belt. "Well, that sounds some delicious... Sure I will have me a plate, before I take this cow lick hairstylin dude back to the county jail for some whippings!"

She ran in and made a heaping plate of delicious breakfast. She then ran out the door, with some steam funneling out of the top of the door exit. She gave the plate to the Sheriff, who began to eat.

"Never ate an egg before that had the yellow blackened. Green, sure.. But, some delicious..." Mattpluck and the rest had their faces turned towards the Sheriff now. He pointed to Mattplucks farm house "Is that there 100 foot flames I see coming out of your house, there sir?"

Mattpluck turned and screamed "Nooo! My house! My base of operations! My whole stash of cracked comic books was in there!" he fell to his knees...

Minanola then thought "I only had the eggs boiling in that grease at high heat... I am sure that that would never have caused any fires or anything"

Thundernose, who decided not to be a superhero dog this time, let it all burn to the ground.

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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
