We went to a club, sat by the dance floor, ate too much food and drank quite a bit. Well, one of us did. Okay, I did. I drank. The unfair thing is that I feel great today. I just don't do hangovers. Feel free to hate me.
There were plenty of drunks dancing. Some were particularly entertaining. One woman was super drunk by about 8 pm. I've no idea what time her party started, but every so often her girlfriend had to go rescue her from the dance floor or maybe rescue other people from her. There was some guy in a blue shirt who periodically tried to do his version of Riverdance. Yes, really.
I'm glad we went. It was fun, but it wasn't all that. It was just another party. We ate, drank, danced, chatted with friends, but in the end, just another party.
I mean, a new year is just another new day. I can't say today feels like a fresh start. People like to make promises of change for the new year, but you can change your world on any day, right? There doesn't need to be some magic date, just a decision to change followed up with action. I'm torn on the issue of resolutions. If it helps people focus, good for them. Not sure I've ever stuck to a resolution. I'm not going to make any. I think I'm going to set goals instead.

Today, we have the a visitor from down under. Welcome to Vonnie Hughes! Since this is Summer in Australia, Vonnie's topic is all about travel, especially in warm climates. Who doesn't want a little tropics in their life right now?
What five books to take? You don’t half like difficult questions, do you? Let’s say James McGee’s The Ratcatcher, Karen Rose’s Don’t Tell, J.D. Robb’s New York to Dallas, Nora Roberts’ Chesapeake Blue, and Amanda Quick’s Crystal Gardens.
Would definitely NOT take a cell phone with me. If it’s to be a desert island, let’s stick with the format.

INTRUSIVE REDNECK NOTE: Nicky also has a free short story featuring Maddie. Look for "The Last Stage" on the Musa Publishing website in December. That's FREE, y'all, which is totally my favorite price.
yet another round
of “It’s not you, it’s me.”

Rescuing Lady Rose has escaped back into the wild. Run and be free, little book!
Rescuing Lady Rose: Mad Hatterlys 4
This hero business is harder than it looks.Henry Hatterly is given an important mission by the Foreign Office. He must convince a notoriously reclusive and paranoid Viennese physicist to sell his plans for a flying contraption to England. To keep from attracting the wrong sort of attention, Henry is ordered to pretend he is courting the scientist's great-niece.
Too bad Lady Rose already hates him.
When Lady Rose is taken hostage along with the plans, she is determined to rescue herself and see her kidnapper punished. She definitely needs a hero's assistance, but why--oh why?--is the only hero available that odious Henry Hatterly? And why can’t she forget the one delicious kiss they shared?
The book is on the loose and available for capture. Looking to trap yourself a copy? I've been told it's frequently at the watering hole of Musa Publishing. This book has also been known to linger at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

Greetings and salutations, or as we say in Redneck land: Howdy! I'm sure you thought we were done with zombies and ghosts once we were past Halloween, but here in the South, we love us some scary stuff. It's never the wrong time for ghosts. This week, Aurora Regency author Susan Lodge has come a-calling and she is talking about things that go bump in the night.
I really don’t know. Many years ago I lived in a flat where, every night for a couple of weeks, I would wake up in the early hours unable to move— it was as if a cold invisible force had me trapped. I always wondered if it was a deceased tenant revisiting. But I have not experienced any out of body experiences since.

Hey Y'all, Aurora author Grace Gibson has come to call. Grace lives here in Texas, but she's a lot less redneck than yours truly. Still, I bet she would sit on the tailgate and swig a few cold ones with us.
“she felt a good deal of feminine chagrin that the men in her party - who availed themselves of astounding feats of cookery with nary a thought to who or where it came from - would pass through such an ancient, unequipped cave as was Treehill’s kitchen and think only of horses.”
Lol! I confess, I love Brussels sprouts as well, but only if I cook them and eat them fresh. Mmm, with a little turkey bacon and...sorry. Having a moment.
Grace's stories are as delightful as she is and you deserve a treat, right? So pick up one of her stories, makes some hot tea and sit by the fire. Check out her page at AMAZON, at B&N, or at the MUSA STORE.
