Anyone else have eventful weekend? Mine was marked by a brief storm this past Friday and a power outage that lasted the entire weekend. In the midst of attempting to preserve our food I also had to take my daughter to a birthday party which actually got my mind off no television including no True Blood or Dexter.
We finally got the power back Monday night but I was afraid I might have to cancel a speaking engagement. Thanks to my wife who played mommy and daddy while I got to go play.
But now I have to catch up on my shows. You never realize how much you miss television until it’s gone. People say things like it’s rotting your brain, there’s nothing good on anymore, or people watch too much, but you wait until it’s gone for a couple days and see how your opinion changes. I was a TV baby, it was a constant babysitter, so I never had that particular opinion.
Oh, the speaking engagement went really well. Fantastic turnout at the Troy Public Library. There is even looking to have me back in the fall. Met some really nice people, including a young author home really has the fire in the belly to produce. I’m trying to steer him toward CreateSpace on Amazon for his next novel just so he can see how much easier and less expensive it is then with the vanity publisher he went with.
