Hey, Syl! Great fishing tales! I haven't fished since, like, 1978. And just the once, I believe. Not into worms. My dad and brothers liked it, tho. I have had some health problems and scares. Got to have my gallbladder out next month, which is the least of my scary health stuff, but probably the most painful thing going on. On a super low-fat diet until the thing is cut out. Lost eight pounds. I should be happy about that, but I hate proving science right (that you can actually lose weight if you put some effort into it!). I've got my Tails column going on (just out -- an excerpt from my dog's novel) and I'm now editing my second novel. Going to upload the corrected text for Find of a Lifetime maybe next month. So many issues! I don't know if I'm an improved writer this year or if taking a year away from it makes me see the problems clearly now. This is in prep for getting serious about writing the third in that series. I'm now the treasurer for the Indiana State Federation of Poetry Clubs, so those duties take some of my time. Still helming my own poetry group and am a member of two others. Had some much better news on the health front recently, so I guess I'm not going to keel over any time soon. Well, unless I get squashed by a tree or something (knock on wood). The meds are medicating as they should. So. Now. I guess that means I need to get back to thinking about what lies ahead down the road apiece. Are you doing okay after your dissing?

"Kings of the Rod" is absolutely briliant! Captures the fishing thing so well. When my Dad and Uncle were alive back in the early 80's we used to park our RV at a private salmon fishing campground all summer and come down on the weeekends to spend time with them. Mostly older folk and all about fishing. The old guys would sit on a big log down by the river with a beer in the evening and swap fishing stories Bryan used to call it "Limp Dick Row" which they all got a kick out of LOL Haven't made it through all your blog entries yet since I've been gone. How is everything else going word wise and otherwise?

How rotten that you were treated that way after all of your tremendous hard work! I'm glad to see you back here, of course, but that just is the most insulting thing! Hugs for everything you worked hard at and for! Now. Relax and let all of the good Cheez wishes wash over you.

By Sylviag on Jun 18, 2015 at 7:19 AM

Will do! Just about done writing the questions after doing extensive BUB research. (Not sure why, but her person, Mike, always capitalizes BUB)

By Sylviag on Apr 5, 2015 at 9:39 AM

Happy Easter! Great about the kitty kare home! Kudos again, Syl! You really do rock, you know! And I just got a yes from the Bub yesterday. Am writing the questions for her today. My next post comes out on Tails tomorrow and then probably the interview with Bub will be out in two weeks. Excited!!

Hey, Syl! Hope your SPD was fab! I posted an Irish-theme poem on my blog if you'd like to check it out sometime. Kinda late for St. Patty's, but I've been so busy . . . whew! Just got a new doctor and I'm getting tests and appointments galore. Guess I need them, but I've gone years without a real gp -- just going to the county health department. Oh, here's that poem:

By Sylviag on Mar 15, 2015 at 9:06 PM

ICHC Main FP congrats!

By jennybookseller on Mar 15, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Thanks, but a Santa lol? Ho ho hum.

By Sylviag on Mar 15, 2015 at 11:24 AM

Late Santa Hot Diggity Dog FP congrats! Techie problems all over the place which is why I think they are posting older LOLs.

Hi. The bands were excellent! Judy and I sat with one of the drummers from my band and his wife (their son is in one of the swing bands). Just a nice, nice evening listening to the music and watching some very talented dancers. A table of three couples sat beside us, all about 70 years old. They brought special dance shoes and they were so smooth and light on their feet! I would have liked to dance, but no one asked me to. I'm sure I'm rusty rusty rusty anyway. Judy is still recovering from major surgery, so we just sat and enjoyed.

By Sylviag on Mar 10, 2015 at 11:11 AM

I meant to ask how the swing dance went. I assue you didn;t swing but your friend did?

By jennybookseller on Mar 10, 2015 at 8:58 AM

I told her and she wagged her tail. She didn't actually raise her head or even open her eyes, but she did wag as a thank you.

By Sylviag on Mar 9, 2015 at 11:05 PM

Great 2d blog feature. Weeg wants to be a perfect (ly lazy writer :) Her book idea does sound intriguing if a little bizarre. Tell her she has a fan already.

By jennybookseller on Mar 9, 2015 at 3:11 PM

Congratzes and here's a story about Weegee maybe thinking about writing her first novel

By jennybookseller on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:43 AM

Thanks again! Going to a swing dance with my friend Judy tonight. I don't know how to swing dance, so it will actually be a swing music concert for me. Still, a girls' night out will be fun.

By Sylviag on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:31 AM

Congrats X 2 on the LOL theme!

By jennybookseller on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:28 AM

Thanks! Enjoy yourself -- you deserve it!

By Sylviag on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:24 AM

LOLCat FP congrats! Love it when a "captioning" theme LOL makes FP. Leaving for the weekend.

By jennybookseller on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:24 AM

Great family tree! Wonder who maded it.

By Sylviag on Mar 5, 2015 at 11:43 PM

Sending this out to some freinds to get it around. Told Tofu about it and hoping ICHC somehow can post it in its entirety. All I could do was get a print screen and give the link

By jennybookseller on Mar 4, 2015 at 7:45 AM

Yeah, at school dances everyone would freak when that song came on.
