David’s business continues to hum along, although the plunging economy has caused a few sputters! Steinway Piano Gallery still does very well, thanks in part to the fabulous group of people we have working with us. At night, David plays online poker, and he’s learning to deal with short stacks. (These are not pancakes. Trust me.)
Joanna’s new mystery Paper, Scissors, Death debuted in September and quickly sold out of the initial print run. The reviews are fabulous. She keeps getting asked if it’s a true story, so the answer is, “My husband was alive when I left the house.” You can see that book and the second one in the series (Cut, Crop & Die) at Amazon.com
Our dogs are fine. Vicky ignores all of us, as royalty is wont to do. Rafferty keeps peeing on the holiday lights on the lawn and shorting them out. Great entertainment, that.
We’re spending several days this holiday season volunteering at a local food bank. How blessed we are that we are able to give rather than be on the receiving end. No matter how bleak the economy looks, we have so much to be thankful for. (Yes, Virginia, sentences do, on occasion, end with prepositions.)
