A Cut in Time

2014-07-13 15-51-14.217Hello friends,

Last week the skin doctor separated a suspicious spot from my scalp. It’s at the top of my head. You would have to be taller than me to see it, which means everyone will be able to see it.  I’d rather have a bald spot than a suspicious one.

When she was sewing me up it felt like I was getting a face lift. I was thinking “more, more”. I believe my ears are a little higher. I like.

This coming Friday and Saturday September 19 & 10,  I’ll be at the Kroger on West Gray signing books. Please come by and purchase some cookies or sushi and say hello! You can’t miss me. I’ll be with the wasp!

The next Friday I’ll be at the Kroger on Shepherd and 11th street in the Heights. I love my Kroger visits. I see a lot of people, many of whom are surprised to discover that they want to buy a book with their groceries.

It’s been quite rainy these past few days here in Houston. We had a cold front last weekend. It was so so so wonderful. Normal temperatures here in September are in the 90’s. Last weekend we had 70’s. With this new rain, it’s back to 90. Here’s a tropical picture or two for you. This is a tree in the front yard. It was three feet tall when I planted in this past spring. The first is a shot from the balcony. My camera fogged up as soon as I walked outside.SAM_1205 The second is the flowers it is loaded with. It’s some sort of hummingbird tree. I don’t know the name of it.

SAM_1216When it rains it’s hard on anyone in the house because of the dog. He barks frantically, trying to get out of the house to bite the thunder. Yes, I know, that’s insane and yes, our window coverings behind the couch are in a shambles. Poor puppy. We give him doggie meds before the storm but they hardly slow him down. I think it’s like morphine for people, you still feel the pain but it doesn’t matter. Even in his drug-induced fog he still hears the dread thunder so he goes crazy. And 80 pounds of crazy is a lot of crazy. Here he is in his normal non-rain state – Sleepy lie-ins all day and no drugs.SAM_1054

  1. I just love your blog….wish I could go to a signing….can you sign Kindle books? 😉
    Our bassett hound would cower and pee on the spot wherever that may be because of thunder. She was 40 lbs of cowardice that whined and shivered the entire time. It drove us insane as well…I can only imagine your doggie!!! We’d try to calm her with meds…but sometimes I’d be at work when a storm would sneak up on us and I knew it would be a stinky mess that I would be going home to. Meds would ‘kick in’ AFTER the storm was done. *sigh. Thankfully thunderstorms are few and far between in this area!

    1. Of course!! On Saturday I’ll be there from 10 AM until 6 or 7. But if you stop by before your seminar you can leave flyers about both events on my table I will share them. I’ll give you some postcards to leave on the table at Writespace.
