Welcome to my Blog!

Happy New Year!


My friend James Murray, a fellow author and editor from San Antonio, Texas, posted the following New Year’s greeting on his website. It’s exceptional! I would not presume to attempt saying it any better…



May peace break into your home;

May thieves steal your debts;

May the pockets of your jeans become magnets for $100 bills;

May love stick to you like glue;

May laughter assault your lips; 

May happiness spread across your face;

May your tears be that of joy;

May the problems you had this past year forget your address.


In short . . .

May 2017 be the



To You and Yours!!
