An Apologie

Friday is here again though I really don't see how it could be. I mean I just posted something a day or so ago, wasn't it? And I think only one person read it.:) Thanks, Hank for leaving a comment. And just to let you know, Carson's Sunshine is Ty and Sally's little sister.
Last week it was cloudy and rainy all day. This morning there is blue sky and sunshine! I am more than ready for it! I do like rainy days, but only for so long.

Okay, here is a sneak preview of a few pictures for my book "Home Fires of the Great War."

I just love how these pictures turned out. These are just two of the fifteen that will be in the book. I am supposed to get the last picture today! I can't wait to see it!

Okay, so I didn't get a story ready to post, but here is a poem instead. I haven't posted a poem for a long time. Enjoy!

To all my deepest apologies
I beg you let this not appease
Your wrath at nothing else to read
For I have tried, I have indeed.

I am writing, never fear
A story long, but the end is near.
It is such fun, I often laugh
Though it contains no tall giraffe.

I'll tell you a secret, I nearly cried
For I laughed till I got a pain in my side.
So come next week prepared to see,
Part one of a story written by me.

And now you know I haven't time,
To keep on working to finish this rhyme.
So I will end it abruptly now,
By simply stopping my pen, somehow.

And do come back next week. The story is quite different than any others so far. I wanted to have it done, but the story was supposed to be 6+ pages long. Well, I am up to page 8, and I think I'm half way done.:) I will get at least part one posted next week unless strange circumstances prevent me. But, how long should I make the post? The last story was about 2000 words. Was that too long? Please tell me what you think. Should I do 1000, 2000 or 3000 words? The title of next week's story is:

"Chester Reginald Donovan; Esquire and the Little E-bay Man"

And now I will end this rather rambling post. I don't know if anyone will even read it especially if I don't remind anyone.:) Ah, well, at least I posted something. :) My record still stands.

Cute poem, Bekah! :) For some reason the pictures wouldn't show up for me though. It said there was a error with them.. :(
P.S. I did read last week's post, but I couldn't think of any questions...sorry! :)
