Oh my. The boys just can't catch a break...

This is so much fun! 

The boys are sinking deeper and deeper into the Galactic goo. I'd say they're about waist high right now. I wonder how they'll get out of this one??

“Well. That seals that deal, Arlo. We’re committed now. We’ve got another problem to think about. How do we free Kasha? Crow has her on a short collar. We could get her killed trying to free her. Hell, we could get ourselves killed if anyone finds out we’re trying to free her.”

 Arlo snickers and says, “So let me recap, buddy. We have to sit back and watch a convoy of innocent traders and their FTG escort get destroyed, and we don’t know why. We have to stay alive during the fight. We have to find a way to free Starla’s sister from a bloodthirsty maniac. We have to contact Triumph again and try to set up another trap and then get away, with Kasha, before the FTG destroys the mercs. Is that about it?”

 “Well. Yes. That about sums it up. What? Is there some problem, buddy?”

Book #3 Give Away this weekend!

I'm setting up the last Amazon Book Give Away for this weekend. It will feature Book # 3 'Arlo and Jake Lost Partner'.

The response to the Give Away for 'Arlo and Jake Enlist' and 'Arlo and Jake Galactic Boot Camp' has been great! Thanks so much to my reading and writing friends and new followers!

If you missed it, you can still get Book 1 and 2 on Amazon or Barnes And Noble, just follow the links on the main blog page.

Book #4 is reaching it's final act, going boldly where no lizard has gone before! I think you'll really enjoy this latest adventure. New species, new bad guys and a huge twist for my heroes. Jake really doesn't enjoy his body morph.

Have a great day, everyone!

Arlo says, "Be Cool. Be Happy. Just Be!"

I'm in the surgical waiting room, waiting for my wife to return from a minor surgery.

Outside the corner windows three flags wave slowly in the Texas wind. The oaks and the willows in the courtyard below are just sprouting their first spring buds.

Bright sunlight reflects off the pale painted roof and bricks, filling the wide room with softness and quiet.

We're at 'that age', where these things start to happen more often. I had heart surgery last year. Debbie's gall bladder decided to kick out a few stones. We both need to exercise more and eat better. Our bodies no longer adapt to our bad habits.

But it's OK. We're together. We have wonderful children and grandchildren. We love each other and like each other. We have our lives away from each other and with each other.

We make plans to travel and enjoy our time together.

The reality is for all the bad stuff that has happened and that will happen, we have each other and we can help each other through those times.

There are far more good times to enjoy and we'll help each other enjoy those as well.

Stop for a moment and be still, my friends. Take a slow breath. Focus on nothing. Be a child again for just a few moments. Life.
