Come and visit me on Sunday afternoon on this lovely street in Strasburg, VA. This book would make a wonderful inexpensive Christmas gift.

You can also browse through the awesome art store while listening to live music. Then, meet me at Christine's across the road at 6:00 PM for some open mic.

Here is my big ole coffee cup high up on my balcony overlooking my driveway and candy coated mountain ridge. I left Autumn in New York two weeks ago and now welcome this amazing season to my home in Virginia. I am blessed to be surrounded by such beauty in the two places.
I've already been fishing with my grandsons and they caught some huge ones, back at the club on Saturday nights, and visiting with my 87 year old awesome neighbor friend. It is exciting to see everyone again and join in the meetings. There are so many more here. We are very blessed to have  many choices of meetings.
Looking forward to my book signing of Blunt Force Winds in Strasburg next Sunday at Limited Editions starting at 2:00 PM. After that I plan on sauntering across the street and gliding into Christina's coffee shop to hear my friend Chris and others play music.
Please come on by to my signing if you are down that way. If you haven't received a signed copy yet, this your chance to do so. I am told that you will not be able to put the book down once you start reading it.
Tada for now until the next time.

Autumn walks in Long Lake with my friend watching the leaves morph from pastels to resounding yellow, orange and red. Reminiscing, watching the sugar maple across from Skip and Joane's each morning, culminating with the one across from Kickerville Station. Crossing the bridge and gazing at the reflection of the majestic trees in the still silent lake letting go of  cool morning fog. And then there was Steve; meeting him on his way to get coffee or sitting on the bench at the beach, always with a friendly greeting, commenting on the weather, and wearing that wonderful smile. I will remember him among the Autumn leaves as they pass together to become.

My Candidate

Mitt Romney
Why choose Mitt Romney

1. He has experience running a state and several successful businesses.
2. His state is number one in education
3. His leadership includes a "We" program. He successfully passed several items with a Democratic majority.
4. He will not change my social security nor my medicare. I am a senior citizen.
5. He will free the United States from being an oil hostage to countries that hate us by reversing Obama's vote to stop oil production in the US.
6. He will create jobs by unplugging Obama's tie on having our own oil in our own country.
7. He will release people from dependence on the government and free them to get jobs or go to school..
8. He is a family man with good values and integrity who loves America and Americans.
9. He has used his success to help others many times in many ways and remains anonymous about most of it.
10. He is a leader, shows it, looks it, talks it and has a record to prove it.

 Why not Obama?
  1. He had no experience when he took office--not a mayor, governor, CEO, etc.  He was a coordinator.  
  2. He listened to an anti-American preacher for twenty years and then dumped him to be president.
  3.  His wife was never proud to be an American until her husband became president(her words).
  4.  He continues to do the same thing expecting different results--spending more money creating an enormous debt.
  5.  The climax  of four years in office  clearly shows that he did not do what he said. In fact, the economy is worse.
  6.  In the debate, he had no new items to add while Romney clearly and concisely numbered what he would do.
  7.  I am a senior and Obama care will take away a chunk of my medicare.
  8. In the debate, he continued to lie about what Romney said even after Romney told him twice that he was not going to raise taxes. Romney had to talk to him like he would talk to his teenage sons to get him to stop repeating the lie. 
  9. He continues to view government control, rule, interference as what is best for the people whether they want it or not.
  10. He has gone to other countries and embarrassed Americans by apologizing for America.
