    “Santa 365” has such a happy cover!

    Here is some information on subconjunctival hemorrhage. My eye does not hurt, and it has not affected my vision. It just doesn’t look pretty…

    Good day to all!

    Happy Saturday to all!
    Wose, it may not be pretty, but at least it is temporary.
    We like the cover, too.
    Hot and muggy here. The heat index is projected to be
    105…WOWSER. Thank God for AC.

    The fourth e-book, right after Tail of Vengeance. A substantial 71 pages. Okay. Big Font so maybe not so much. But still, those stories keep adding up.

    What? No first paragraph?

    “There’s no Santa Claus,” Charlie said.

    “Who told you that?” said Bernie.


    “Who’s Esmé?”

    “At school.”

    “Well,” said Bernie, “everyone has their own opinion.”

    “It’s not an opinion, Dad,” said Charlie. “It’s a scientific fact.”


    “From a scientist.”

    “Any scientist in particular?”

    “Groucho Marx.”

    I can see that when I am done with Tender is the Bite (up to ch. 15) that I am going to have to re-read ALL of the e-books/PDFs.

    RIO! I am sorry I spent my time reading “The Plot”. This book was pretty bad, and not the caliber of story I am used to reading by this author. As soon as the character of Anna was introduced, I knew what the plot was all about.

    When it was mentioned I went back and tried to get a good look at the quilt but couldn’t. Does anyone have a better pic of the quilt? I’m a quilter and am interested. And what did you contribute? Was it fabric or your signatures or something else? I’ve done a few group quilts. One with hands and signatures done with contributed fabric. Another with pictures drawn with iron on crayons by guests.
