Happy Friday!

This has been another of those really interesting weeks.  I have something going that makes me really happy, but can’t talk about yet. Don’t you hate that? I so hate it!  But I will say that, Indie publishing is it’s own kind of awesome.

With all the drama of my incident I don’t want to talk about any more (stupid Achilles), I totally forgot to tell you all something else. At CPA Boy’s wedding, guess who caught the garter?

There was a group of men, I’m guessing maybe fifteen? Possibly more. First, CPA Boy made a total production of taking the garter off Special K. She was blushing and he was hamming it up…

Yeah, makes a mom so proud. LOLOL!!

Then Special K escaped, the guys lined up, and CPA Boy messed around for a while being a total ham. He gets that from Wizard, I’m very serious and reserved, and I certainly don’t like to be the center of attention.


Sigh, why does not one ever believe me?

Anyway…Middle Son and BLB (Broken Leg Boy with the plates and screws in his leg) are out there. Now for long events like this that requite a lot of standing and walking,  BLB uses his cane just to ease the pressure on his leg.  He’d been using the cane most of the night, even when he danced with his girlfriend.

This time he’s out there without his cane in a group of men determined to get the garter. Hmm, how can this go wrong? But I kept my mouth shut (I know, shocking. But I truthfully trust BLB’s judgement, he usually knows what he’s doing and how to handle his leg)

CPA Boy shoots off the garter and it comes down to a match between Middle Son and BLB.  We know who is going to win, after all Middle Son is natural born athlete.

So imagine our shock when  BLB dove for the garter, slid across the floor and got it.

We’re all like…did that just happen? Seriously? Even Middle Son looked a bit shocked.

All I can say is never underestimate BLB!

So this weekend is the usual for me. What about you all? Any special plans?

    How cool! I love that BLB knows how far to push it so he saved it all up to get that garter ;). Guys, they’re really too funny.

    Okay you tease :) we’ll wait patiently for the news. Did I say patiently? You know I lied ;). But we’ll wait.

    I have no big plans for the weekend. It’s supposed to get warm here again :( . I love cooler weather so yesterday I just enjoyed the beautiful cool breezy day :). I may make cookies later this morning.

    Oh and hubs may be heading out your way Monday for a big meeting instead of Wednesday. I hope he goes out early because I think he’ll have some fun.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Way to go, BLB! Not letting no stupid leg keep him from the prize! Woohoo!

    Can’t wait to hear your news, Jen. Indie publishing, huh? Could it be that someone somewhere was smart enough to resurrect the Wing Slayers??? That’s my wishful thinking anyway. Not that I don’t love all your books, but those have a special place in my heart. =o)

    The weekend? Where the heck did that come from? Ya know, I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday. Of course, the coffee pot freaking out while I wasn’t paying attention and sending coffee running all over the counter and onto the floor didn’t help. You sure it’s not Monday dressed as Friday?

    Seriously, though, I’ll probably spend the weekend working on editing and getting my courage together to start querying again. We’ll see how it goes.

    Awwww. If he’d used the cane, he could have caught in mid-air. :twisted:

    I know how it goes with keeping secrets. I’m dying to know yours, though, you tease! :-P

    I think we may go to the Festival of the Americas on Sunday. There will be Scottish dancing, Greek food, Filipino dancing, and one of our favorite musicians, guitar master Edgar Cruz. Saturday, I’ll be working. Dang edits/revisions. SOOOO close to being done with SEASON OF THE WITCH. Then I have to get on getting THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC ready for release. Lots of uploading since all the formatting is already done. Problem is, not sure there’s enough coffee in the world! :lol:

    Have a great weekend, everyone! And Jen? You take care of that foot, hear!?! Don’t make me come hurt you. Just sayin’… ;)

    Viki, what kind of cookies? Don’t leave us hanging!

    It’s been miserable hot here, so I feel for you :-(

    The news isn’t that big, really. I’m just excited.

    Hope your hubby has a great trip!

    B.E., nope on the Wingslayers :-(

    Wow you’re having a Monday on Friday! That’s not allowed! I’m so sorry.

    Definitely query! Just do it. All they can say is no, and big deal. There are a ton of no’s on the way to success. Each one is a step closer! Go edit and query!

    Silver, true on the cane! Although he might have clubbed a few people with it. At that point int he night, people were feeling “loose” yeah, that’s the word :-)

    The festival sounds fun! Glad you are making time to go to it! But then Sunday it’s all work for you to to get SOTW done! And the formatting and uploading, ugh. I upload, I don’t format. It’s make run my hands under water and stick then in all available light sockets :-)

    I’m healing! Staying off it much as I can. It’s all good.

    Biker Witch, it happened so fast! I thought for sure Middle Son would get it. He was close, but BLB beat him out. I *think* Middle pulled back at the last second, but I’m not positive. We’ll see what the pics/video shows!
