Hula Girl

Hula Girl

Hula girl is helping with our next book. For those of you who don’t know. Hula girl took a trip across country with Gary and I; ending up in Joshua Tree California. She became a hit and people wanted to see more of Hula Girl’s adventures. So her exploits will become a recurring theme. I will also post some of her past travels so you can get an idea of just how cool she is.

Below is an example.

She enjoyed California but didn’t much care for the gas prices.

Or are you that person?

The voices seem to like my ideas….

A throw back post for Cheryl – and she pointed out that the guys would probably like it too.

Or right now.

Or for Thursdays…

Editors matter.

The Fifth Draft

The Fifth Draft

This is Paul and I today. For us, it tends to go better later in the day. YMMV.

And commercials: My bologna has a first name…. you’re welcome.

This is how they were shipped from the factory. There have got to be some of these sitting around somewhere – I would love to get my hands on one. Of course, so would a lot of other people, who have way more money than I do.

Morning coffee and a little Twitter fun.

Morning coffee and a little Twitter fun.

First – your morning coffee. Get out there.
Shut up and Take My Money! If you knew Cheryl and I, you would understand.

Now on to a little Twitter fun. This next one is for Gary.

The next three are unrealistic tropes that happen in movies all of the time.

Perspective

Perspective

Let’s put our current situation into perspective. We are living on a rock in space spinning one thousand miles per hour, traveling at 67 thousand miles per hour around the sun, spinning 450 thousand miles per hour around the center of the Milky Way while the universe is expanding at 151 thousand miles per hour. For those of us with an over inflated sense of worth and self importance.

Way more than I used to.
With a 37 year old mind – unless I need to remember why I came into this room – or what I had for breakfast – or … damn.
