Of pain and torture

Hi everyone,

In case you think goo foffing is all fun and games, take a look at the all-new exercise room where we spend time every other week day. We don’t stay long, only thirty minutes or so. Sandy does mostly a cycle machine to build leg strength. I spend half my time on a tread mill and the other half going from machine to machine, doing ten to twenty grunts and groans on each.

We reserve this form of torture for afternoons after 1:00 when I quit writing for the day. Sometimes we eat a light lunch first. After our workout we run errands and do chores. Yesterday we cleaned out the freezer. There were some interesting oddments in there. The weather is warmer this week so we look forward to walks on the beach.

Yesterday an editor I love responded positively to a query about a new idea I had on the planes back from Hilton Head. This week I’m into the “Mary Jo” book but when I get to a point where I can spare some time I’ll dig into the new idea.

Looking toward the future

Hi everyone,

Sandy and I enjoyed all the comments and good wishes over the past several days. Thank you from both of us. We heard from some friends who don’t often leave remarks so that was an added treat.

Back to work this morning. I have an idea I want to explore. Not much contact with editors this time of year but I have plenty to do. In a week or so we’ll start trying our luck in 2019. New slate, new hope, new opportunities. Time to start looking toward the future. Bring it on!
