Fall-Out Shelter?

I am amazed and proud that people are standing up, talking, and debating the gun issue, no matter how they feel. This is an issue worthy of careful consideration. Hey, if Congress won’t do anything, we the people can. It’s in the Constitution! What I’m not proud of, is the ridiculous postings people pass around on FB, but I guess some people haven’t learned that big lesson yet.

And now Russia has gotten back in the Nuclear build-up game, so wow folks, we’re back in the cold war again. Everyone have their fall-out shelter ready?

Some friends thought I was playing video games on-line when I posted “live on Kickstarter.” I got a good chuckle out of that one. It’s definitely a generational thing. Kickstarter is the venue my kids are using to showcase their new game “Of War and Men,” get backers, and pre-sell games. Their goal is $20,000 in funding, and if they don’t reach that goal, no one’s credit card gets charged. If they get enough backing, and they are already at 70% of their goal, they will forge full speed ahead. To back them (pre-order a game) go to kickstarter.com and search “Of Men and War.”

The weather has turned vile on both coasts, and my heart goes out to the flood victims, especially cruel this bitter cold time of year. Once again, I say hooray for the Red Cross. They are always there when we need them.

Finally, a huge shout out and Thank You to Jamie Leigh Photography, Jamie Smith of Greeley, Colorado for doing a fantastic job with my promotional photo shoot, all part of gearing up for the release of my middle grade novel “Rhyaden” come fall. Write On!
