It’s that time of year again when memories are made at the Oris George Mansion. There’s just something special about a snack around the table, editing a Christmas story and Patsy’s hot chocolate that brings to mind a roaring fire and the warmth of family and friends. All are welcome there.
This morning I found this note slipped under my kitchen door. Mr. Reed, we are concerned about you. We do not see any little kids visiting your home. We have observed you live in a childless home. Can you honestly confess you’re not completely sure of what children are like, march yourself (if you have [...]
Elmer Coyote has been kinda quiet the last few weeks. This is a note from him I found on my kitchen door this morning. Sounds to me like he’s learning a few things about life. “Needless to say, the most obvious juxtaposition of opposites is simply a man and a woman. No one has ever [...]

Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving! From [...]

Building a business online connects one to a whole rift of people you might never have met otherwise, right in your own neighborhood. Such it is with Miss Kimberlie King, who created the video trailer for my book [...]
