Posted by mcm0704 on April 23, 2014 |

Please welcome S. Cameron Roach – Scott – as today’s Wednesday’s guest. As I said on Sunday, when I posted the review of his book,  I met Scott at the art festival in Killeen, Texas a couple of months ago. We were table buddies, meaning our book tables were next to each other. I enjoyed […]

Pets, you gotta love ’em

We have this cat named Orca — for obvious reasons — and he has had a tough life for only being three years old. Of course, out here in the country the lifespan of a cat is much shorter than that of their city cousins. But we try to give them as much help as […]
