Whew, the title alone☝️is a mouthful. Alliteration much?
I haven’t been very productive as a writer (or anything else). I blame it on a lot of things, heck the heat here in Texas by itself is an acceptable excuse [and I have lots of excuses] but the truth is …
I found TikTok about a month ago.
My Lord, I have stayed up late nearly every blasted night for the past month gobbling this junk up like a crack head crashing after a week long binge.
I might need an intervention.
Nah, like most things, I will probably get bored with it and it will be poof! “physician heal thy self.” But until then…
Tik tic- tick tick – TikTok.

I sometimes imagine Jimmy as a child …or Leia transforming and taking fight … what’s more, I wish it were all possible.
I hope I never get too old for such childish thoughts. They are, after all, what dreams and stories are made of.
Cloud Wrangler was born of such childishness. 😉
… Mad as in I am mad about these adorable kittens. They were born yesterday and I spent most of the day cooing over them. I know, I’ve got a problem.
See why I didn’t have time to read the poems submitted? I know you will forgive me when you see all of this furry cuteness, all five of them.
Hey, maybe one of them will inspire a bit of poetry? It could happen.
I mean really. Just look at these kitty cats. And Maddie is being a great mama – once she got over the surprise.
A Look Back at 2018
I wasn’t very productive as far as writing [or marketing] goes but I made a few memories and I ain’t mad about that. 😀
Some of the books got a new cover, you can see them here if you’re so inclined, or you can look at a few of my pictures from 2018.
Man that flew by. Oh well…
Hasta la vista 2018, I’ll be back & here’s wishing all of YOU a HaPpY 2019!!
It was a cat very similar in appearance to pretty Kitty Puddin’ Jam [aka Jammin’ Jim, One-Eyed Jimmy Jones, Jimmy Jam and plain Jimmy] who played the character Strudel in the short A Hard Candy Christmas. The story is beautifully narrated by Julia Gayden Nelson.
Dolly Pardon’s song Hard Candy Christmas played in the background, fueling my imagination as I pecked out the words to the story.
Strudel was actually a stray feral cat who sought refuge with me through one rare snowy winter. Jimmy insists he could play the part and probably win a prestigious theater award. He would also totally love to hang out with Dolly.
Look at this blasted cat. This is reason #17 for not getting anything done today. 😀
I’m falling off my stool here. Would you just look at this cat!
No, seriously, look at him. Look. At. This Cat.
