Top 10 Memories From 2008


10 top Memories of 2008 in no particular order:


1. My son’s graduation.

2. Catching the first rainbow trout at our family reunion in Arkansas.

3. Accidentally smashing four pizzas we were toting back to hungry family reunion because spouse and I pulled into a deserted parking lot for spontaneous combustion in the back of the rental van. We blamed it on a deer jumping in front of the car and causing the pizza’s to fly.

4. Finishing final draft of novel.

5. Publication of a story, and public readings throughout the spring, summer and fall.

6. Caring for my dying mother.

7. Working with a personal trainer in my home. Worth every penny; he thought I was gorgeous.

8. Cybering with a woman on a vampire site (purely a writing exercise, you understand) who scared me more than turned me on.

9. Being disinherited.

10. My brother’s wedding to a guy who is very much like my mother.
