Happy Thanksgiving

I hope this day goes exactly as you want it to, whether that means spending it with family and friends, as I will, or flying solo.

As I've said elsewhere, I have so much to be thankful for this year--more than any other Thanksgiving--and I will be taking time to reflect on the blessings in my life.

I expect those blessings to include dressing, mashed potatoes and pie.

Have a good one.

Cramming for Stuffing

One more brief day of work, then I’m on vacation. It’s the first real vacation in what has been a very long year.

Here’s my vacation plan:

1) Don’t get up at Oh God o’clock every morning.

2) Help Norma with whatever needs to be done to prepare for Thanksgiving (including–but not limited to–being the official taster. Oh, what a burden I bear). This year I have more to be thankful for than at any time in my life and I want to take the time to properly appreciate that.

3) Write. I have to finish two non-fiction pieces, one overdue short story, a final edit on Dead Earth: Sanctuary and continue with the second Dead Sheriff book.

I thought about adding “eat leftovers” but I think that is assumed.

I hope you have a good week.
