Speaking of which, I have to get back to A SEAL Wolf for Sale! I saw The Monument's Men and enjoyed it yesterday. Monday it was time to finish dealing with taxes. Today, it's fingers to the keyboard. Why I love to photograph: A camellia flower and a bee, Spring, Texas Botanical Gardens. Have...

My friend and fellow Red Roomer Judee Fong invited me to take part in the blog tour. So here goes: 1)  What am I working on?   I’m working (sporadically) on two novels, while revising a completed manuscript. My first novel, the one I’m now revising is the story of a community and of one...
