The eggs are coming back as I figured they would. We have the cooler on the porch jammed with about ten or eleven dozen and more in the refrigerator. It looks like the Farmer’s Market is back on the schedule for this Saturday again. That will make a bunch of customers happy.
Since I can’t get around too good right now, I have been working on my new book, entitled “Life in the Barren World”. As I’ve mentioned before...it’s about my life, starting at ten years old in 1961. It is a compilation of the sometime hilarious antics of childhood, occasionally some tales of woe where things didn’t go right and we found ourselves in trouble and then the times of adolescent grief and the unhappiness of death in the family, personal failures and other trying times in the life of a young boy in the financially bleak sixties.
We are still planning to pick up the block of ISBN numbers this coming month and finally publishing my book of poems entitled, “Poetry From the Heart - Unpretentious Notions of a Minimalistic Man”, which is a short book of poems that I wrote and have all ready to publish, by simply sending it off to the printer once I get the ISBN and UPC code numbers.
I have a finished, second book of considerable length, which is entitled, “It All Began With a Puppy… Our Uncommon Journey”. It is a story of how Vicki and I met, helped each other and finally fell in love and ended up married and fulfilling our dream of living on and running the farm full of animals we have today. It is in the editing and second rewrite mode right now and I work on it when I can, but am neglecting to rewrite this currently recorded material, in lieu of writing down the new memoirs, which are still in my mind. Much of the editing and rewriting can be done this winter or during the lousy weather and I try not to write except for early morning or days that it rains, especially during these beautiful summer days.
We have been receiving more emails and comments on the blog now since we changed the stupid format. Helen was great at informing us that she constantly tried to leave comments, but the program wouldn’t allow her to. The problem lies somewhere between Blogger and AOL we think. Helen went to Firefox and her troubles lessened, but I think Blogger has issues too. In any event, thanks to all you regular readers that commented and PLEASE, more of you leave comments or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how we are doing and what we can do to make the blog more interesting to you!
