Well Versed

If you're like me, the postal service usually delivers only two things: bills and junk mail. That being the case, I loved it when this copy of Well Versed, an anthology published by the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writer's Guild, appeared on my doorstep. It includes one of my short stories, but what made it even more fun is that a fellow Saturday Writer, Alice Muschany, has two stories included. She always was an overachiever. Way to go, Alice!

The book can be purchased through Amazon.

Meanwhile the heat wave continues. We went to an outdoor concert last night (crazy, I know) thinking we'd stay only for a few songs. However, the band was so good that we stood on hot brick singing and dancing to the blues music of The Red House for about three hours. They were wonderful and we were grateful for the outstanding show they presented in fierce weather conditions.

Hope all of you are keeping safe and cool, including our four-footed friends!

Congratulations on being published. That's way better than junk mail and bills ;-)

Enjoy your week and keep cool as well. My dog Gizzy and I only go out early in the morning and stay in pretty much all day because we are both old and fluffy LOL

Praise God for A/C!

Congratulations on your publication! We've been reading about your heat's hot here in the South, too, but not quite as brutal as what y'all are experiencing. We're in the 90s, though...and humid! My Labs have been unhappy because we're not taking them along when we run errands. Just too hot to leave them in the truck, even with the windows down. Our furries will be happy when cooler weather strikes and they can go for rides again.
