If the house DIY people on TV could do it in just five weeks, we could certainly do it in say two months, right? Well seven months later we have discovered what those TV shows don't tell all. Nope, they underestimate the amount spent, and contractors are working like bees on flowers just outside of the reach of the cameras. We were two elderly people doing it alone. Hmmm. 6 months later we had the house done. Every day I took copious notes as to what we did and how long it took. Someday I'll publish that with appropriate comments. (No I will not use profanity or the one finger salute.)
Right now, however I'm engrossed in writing a story that has stood on the back burner since I wrote Crossing the Raging River. I am doing a sequel in which Ben's little sister moves to Oregon to be near he and Jane. She intended to come out west all married just as Ben and Jane are, but somehow she lost the groom. If she wants a large wedding with all the trimmings and a happy life ever after, she is going to have to get with the program and find herself a groom. Ben and Jane want to help, as does Ashley's new boss and The Regulars that eat at Mary's Place and come in daily to comment on the town's goings on and the local fishing. Oh my gosh! I wonder what kind of a groom Ashley will find.Stay tuned to see what may happen next. I promise to blog more often. If you have ideas you would like to see incorporated, leave me a note. I love new takes on old ideas.
