The month of July was a whirlwind of stuff. Wow! And here I was thinking I need to crank it up a notch in August.. Well why not right? Where to begin...
In my life long love/hate relationship with Television, I watched all the episodes of Legend of the Seeker. What a cool show, but of course, it is canceled now.. Still looking for my copy of Wizard's First Rule, gonna try the series again. Me and the tyke have been surfing through cartoons, which he is not real keen on, but we hit it with The Land Before Time series. He seems to like Ice Road Truckers and Dirty Jobs, Discovery, History Channel, and Food Channel. Weird, I know..
The From The Dark Side Charity Anthology was released and has sold a few dozen copies. I have a poem in there myself with some fine short stories and poetry by some truly talented folks. It is a good thing, and if you have not bought a copy, go here, for more information. The proceeds go to furthering literacy.
In that vein, I have been happily scribbling along, writing poetry, working short stories, and of course, the blasted novel. All of which moved along just fine. This past week I have had the good fortune to start writing for Kid Wonderful. What a great opportunity! I get to write about kid stuff, a subject I have a bit of knowledge about, being as I was once a kid and loved it, and I am happy to say we have three boyos who keep us on our toes. The tyke is my chief assistant! You can check out all the cool stuff by a group of talented parents at the website.
If you stop by on a regular basis, no, I did not forget the big news! I made you read all that other stuff first, before I got to the newest member of the family. My son Julian and his better 1/2 Melissa, had a daughter last week. They named her Olivia. Which means, I am now a grandfather and that is pretty cool. She is already a media star on facebook and in ye olde blog. As a matter of fact, my busiest day ever here at my meandering wanderings, was the day I posted her picture and did the announcement. I guess I will have to do more blog posts about her.
Not much of a summation of a wacky, crazy month of stuff. So much going on that it kinda gets a post during the month, if I catch my breath long enough. Who knows where I will wander this month?
