Oy Vey!

Well, I'm two Fridays behind in posting for VikLit's Celebrate the Small Things. I figured when I joined, I would find a few things to celebrate. But...hey...I get distracted. What with Ebola and all. I've been busy.

You know, preparing. Just in case.

With all the antics with the American government, CDC, allowing flights in from West Africa, and the Texas hospital, it seems to me that the red tape or whatever power trip these peeps are on have clouded their judgement.

OR

Maybe our government wants to just knock more than a few of us off. This is a possibility, you know.

Besides, all the stuff above, I took time to hang out with the Glowstick. Took him to the Great Explorations Museum.

Here he's a pizza chef.

Here he's milking a cow.

And if I haven't been playing with the Glowstick, my ears have been steaming over my computer. It hasn't worked right in two weeks.

Yesterday, Skinny-Computer-Guy fixed it. But I've got another problem. Remember my duplicate chapter 37 in Killer Stilettos? Now it's completely missing along with chapters 38 through 60.

OY VEY!

Despite that and the Ebola mishaps, I've been looking up a lot lately. The Florida sky has been awesome. And too, I've been celebrating Sukkot. But there is no way I could talk the Sweetman into putting up a tent. He's not a camper whatsoever.

So how is everyone else doing?

Hugs and chocolate!

  1. Crap, sorry about the missing chapters!
    If Glowstick knows how to make pizza, you know he'll never starve.

  3. Oh My Goodness ! Lost chapters ?
    I can so understand. I lost four original art works for cards and tore my studio apart. I found them but I have decided to re do my studio and consolidating art originals. But what a mess.
    I hope you find them soon.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Lovely picture of the clouds. That one big one looks like a very fat squirrel.

    I'm thinking the Ebola thing is more UFO antics, and everyone in government are aliens.

    The lost chapters thing--that's bad. I loose things on my computer I'm up a creek for sure. Skinny computer guy can't help you find them? Just a thought.

  5. I've had that happen...more than once. I finally took the hint and started backing up everything in at least four places. I even archive my email and export my blogs. If that's not paranoid, I don't know what is!

  6. Two weeks without my computer would drive me crazy but losing work is worse.

  7. I don't think I could handle having no computer for very long. I hope you find those missing chapters!

  8. I've been busy drafting my next book.

    Missing chapters? You should sign up for Dropbox. It's a free way to back up your work.

  9. Looks like a fun place for your grandson!

    Yes, this Ebola thing is not cool. My daughter just told me that patients were brought to the Atlanta hospital for treatment. I'll have to look that up to see if it's true.
