My book

So, I am certain that some people are wondering why I haven't been posting all that often lately, and I know that's not a very big difference, but I have looked at my post list and realized that until the last few days, it has been even less often than usual. 

Therefore, I am going to tell you that I am writing a book.  It is an LDS fiction novel and therefore, not all of my readers may enjoy it, but I think that it's interesting.  (Hence the reason I'm writing it.) 

After much soul searching I have decided that I want to post the first chapter on my blog.  I haven't decided how to do that.  I would like to put it under a new tab, but I don't know how.  If any one has any suggestions on how to post it or how to insert a new tab into my home page, feel free to let me know.  Thanks.

First off, thanks to all people who wished me happy birthday today.  I had a great birthday.  I got my first (and probably only) professional massage, and it was absolutely wonderful.  A great huge bucket full of thank you to Rob.  I am not even going to try to ask how we are paying for it. . . That's between him and his fun money.

I really ought to write something lovely about my father's funeral, but really, it's all so close to my heart, and I'm still slightly depressed about that, so I am not going to write about it.  All I am going to say is that the funeral was absolutely beautiful, and all nine of my brothers and sisters and I participated in it in some fashion.  It is the only time I have played the marimba where I couldn't see the keys. According to everyone else, it sounded beautiful.

This next part is only for adults.  A southerism. . .

Last complete family Picture

This is a picture of my family that we took at Ruth's wedding. It is the last complete picture of my family with my brothers and sisters and parents.  Aren't my sisters just beautiful???


I was going to write a tribute to my dad, and I really still want to, but every time I start, I get about four words in, and then I can't see the screen, so instead, I am going for something different.  Instead, I am going to give the information.

For anyone who knew him, I am letting you know that my dad's funeral is at noon on Friday. There will be a viewing first from 9:30-11:30 at the stake center in my home town. 

Rest in Peace, Dad.
