Where have the days gone? August is just around the corner and I’m still in summer mode.

We spent the 4th of July in Colonial Williamsburg. Attended a big band concert by the Art Museum and watched the fireworks coming up from behind the Governor’s Mansion. It was an amazing week. I hope all y’all had a safe and reasonably sane 4th of July.

As always this is a multi-genre list of authors and books. I hope you find something new and interesting in my August listings.

Hugs to you all.

I Can’t Wait For May to Come!

Right now we are in the middle of a complete demolition and reconstruction of our bathroom. Wouldn’t you know we’d find leaks in the ceiling when the room was torn apart. We started this job on Monday and had to wait till today for the Co-Op plumber to inspect it. We’ll probably have another three days till it’s attended to. In the meantime my plumber put in all new brass piping and the electrician came in today to upgrade the wiring for my new lights and dimmer switch.

I hope the books I’m showcasing this month will entertain you as much as my construction problems have. LOL

April is coming in any way it chooses this year. Sorry I’m late with my post.

Normally I’d have had this post up by the 15th of the month. Things got a bit busy this year. My eldest grandson told us he was going to ask his girlfriend to marry him. None of us expected this till they’d graduated college next year. On top of that I’m dealing with the holiday I dislike the most. PASSOVER!

I spend and cook more food for the first three days of this holiday then I do for a month any other time of the year. Adding in that the Seder will be at my younger daughter’s house out on Long Island I have to cook in my kitchen and then shlep it out there still warm is making me extremely unhappy.

So, to make all of you happy I’m going to be posting my April list of new titles releases and have added some new authors to the list. I hope you find something interesting to read.

As always this is a multi-genre attempt at entertaining you and introducing you to some really great stories.

We’re into 2021 and I’m trying to see anything different about our NEW year. Hopefully things will get better so I can head down to Virginia for the 4th of July this year.

As always I try to give as large a range of genres as my aging mind can turn up in my research. I hope you are all safe and sound. I get my 1st Covid shot next week and then a few weeks later the 2nd. I’m watching the craziness on the news and praying that everyone just takes a DEEP BREATH and calms down.

Wishing you and yours a Healthy and Sane 2021.

Well, it’s a new year and so far nothing has changed in my world. I now bring you your new books for February of 2021! If feels so strange writing that.

As always I offer the largest range of genres my feeble and getting older mind can produce. I’m already planning my summer vacation for July 4th. We’re heading down to the home of our Nation. Williamsburg Va. I’ve made our reservations and hope we’ll actually be able to end up there. It’s in the hands of the Virus and whoever is watching over us. Stay safe, get the shot and….. stay out of trouble. LOL
