Just Mojito in the Morning

Well, Miss Miller's post about Allagash prompted this post as well. She thought it was disturbing to be posting a picture of Allagash beer at 8:00 AM. OK, so it's barely noon and I'm not just posting a picture of Mojito, I'm drinking it from my favorite Shrek glass and enjoying the hell out of it. Of course, if you consider that I've been up since 2:00 AM, having been conscripted to run the early, early morning or late, late night shift... take your pick, whilst someone else is off enjoying their vacation... well, then, maybe it's not quite so bad.

The ride in this morning was quite eventful. I saw two deer, a skunk, a raccoon and an unidentified flying object and that was in my driveway! LOL! The moon was beautiful, of course, and the deer were feeding... in the middle of the road! The skunk was just strutting by with her tail up and the cows were all asleep. There were numerous bats and mysterious insects flitting around in the headlights and the bridge was quite lovely in the moonlight. The morning shift went quite well and everyone was happy when someone made us a watermelon basket with little heart-shaped pieces of watermelon in it. Another laugh considering the environment.

All in all, I was happy to get home alive this morning about 11:00 AM and anxious to get back to my real occupation, writing and trying to promote my work. I uploaded book number four to Smashwords this morning and was quite pleased with my success in spite of the Shrek glass to my immediate right.

Most importantly, I received two more great reviews on The Red Cross of Gold I:. the Knight of Death and these two were FIVE STARS!!!! Check them out if you don't believe it. I'm still walking on cloud nine... or is that lying on it? At any rate, you'll be hard pressed to find a happier author right now. I know that I still have some typos and minor editing work in the books, but I've given up on being a perfectionist. If the story is good enough... well, I'm truly flattered and terrifically thrilled to have actual human fans now (instead of imaginary friends from other planets... LOL). Thank you, Linda Fox and Abrianna O'Hare, the eloquent elocutionist, for the kind words and the stars.

  1. A UFO? You too have an issue with wearing your glasses in the morning?!?! You do realize that it could have been the streetlight?

    The Shrek glass compliments the Mojito bottle. So, you're telling me that Allagash indeed should be consumed cold?

    Congratulations on the reviews, Brendan!
