Pardon me while I rant ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most people who write me via this website are very nice. They thank me for the photos and thoughts I post and for taking the time to create them. I always appreciate their kind words.

Then there are the jackasses who offer unsolicited criticism of me, my writing and my website. Today some jerk told me I shouldn’t talk about the word count I’ve reached when I’m writing a novel-in-progress. I didn’t bother to respond because talking to people like him is a waste of time. The photos I’ve posted here are the appropriate response to such critics.


I woke to the sound of rain pounding my roof this morning. Then my alarm beeped, but instead of getting up I turned the alarm off and promptly went back to sleep for two hours.

Now I’m up and enjoying a light breakfast. The aroma of brewing coffee wafts through my house and I am feeling quite contented. My only problem is that the rain soaked my newspaper and now I have it drying out on my dining table chairs. 🙁

I have an easy day ahead of me. After breakfast I’ll write new material for a while. I’ll read the paper when it finally dries out, and take care of correspondence. After lunch I’ll get some yard work done, and then I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island. Since it’s Thursday, I’ll drive into the city around 5:30 PM to spend the evening with one of my oldest friends.

Have a great day, friends. Keep smiling.
