Good News and Bad Bugs

I received word today that the author's copies of the new edition of the God Makes Lemonade books will be delivered anyday. My contribution to this book "The Little Biker That Could," was my first attempt at writing. It has been a long wait getting it published. It is a delightful story about Tom, a wonderful physical therapist, teaching my son, Kurtis, to ride a bicycle. Kurtis essentially only has one functional leg and teaching him to ride was no simple task. I hope to be able to take Kurtis to Placerville, CA to present Tom a copy of the book. Kurtis is unaware I have had the story published. He will be so pleased. The day he learned to ride a bike was a huge day in his life.

I also received my first fan letter (email) today -.not because the reader liked what I wrote in my column "Out of the Ark," but because the place I mentioned brought back nostalgic memories. You know what? Writing it brought back great memories for me too. So did the reader's email. Recalling old times and places are some of the great joys of writing the column. 

Kurtis and I both have that flu bug that has been going around Oregon. Fortunately, we both had our flu shots and seem to have a lighter case of it than some. Since Kurtis works at a retirement center it means time off work for him. For me, a retired postal worker, who writes and takes care of pets Gracie and Holly and husband Doug, life goes on pretty much unchanged. I do take seriously the advice to drink extra fluids and get more sleep; longer and more frequent naps - larger glasses of iced tea.
