I’m pretty sad to have missed Halloween with the grandkids this year. Pictures are great, but being there is better. A bumblebee and a robot/transformer seen below.
I’m still in my whole-lotta-shit-to-do week. But it’s going well. The estate planning turned out to be a lot bigger job than expected, but…it needs to be done.
Good news, I did manage to find a cache of my favorite wine in the world – D66 Pharoan from Maury, France. It ain’t cheap, but it sure is special.
My writer’s group is restarting post-COVID, and it makes me sad that I’m not writing anything (except blog posts) right now. I have thought of a good way to rewrite the Lost Hope book and get it into better/publishable shape, and I have a couple of ideas for the next one floating around. But I’m having a hard time committing to the writing.
In other depressing news, CNN just ran a story about how terrible air travel is and that it’s going to get worse. Just what I wanted to hear when I’m all-in on a two-residence, cross country lifestyle. My timing has always been bad.
Finally, I will mention a book I just finished: The Life We Bury. It’s not my usual fare, but I enjoyed it a lot. Compelling characters and story. The authors did a great job taking a simple idea and turning it into a great story. Recommended.
