Me: Speed blogging.
Why: Wife off work entire forthcoming week. Whoo-hoo! Visiting local wineries today to buy Thanksgiving wine. She now in shower. Me now on/in bed, BLOGGING AT WARP SPEED!
Do I enjoy going to winery tastings? No. Nein. Nyet.
Why not: Weird business model: Stand; sip; get stared at; feel pressure to buy. Plus, prodigious pretentious potential powerful put-off.
Wife, though, LOVES whole atmosphere of wineries. May be burgeoning wino. Must monitor.
Thanksgiving! Always a fave holiday of ours! So much to be thankful for. First: Perfect religion. Second: Love of good woman. Third: I'm not yet dead. List goes on. Except actually that's about it. Sweet!
Ah, autumn. It was 87 degrees here yesterday. Our local leaves turn orange and red in the fall cuz they're frying in the sun. No: It's autumn/winter here, for sure. Can tell by eerie darkish light So Cal gets this time of year. Dig it.
Wife out of shower! Must rouse self!
But before I do: A sincere thanks to those who've joined by Facebook Fan Page. I have no platform---no TV/radio show, no mega-church I head, no national ministry to help me sell books. The web is my platform. Tough to impress publishers with that. But every person who joins my fan page is one more indication to a book publisher that I might be someone on whom they should take a chance. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I look forward to walking out onto the stage you're so graciously helping me build.
All right! Rouse time! Out of my bed and off I go, to act like I know a merlot from my toe.
