Someone said it was National Black Cat Day, but as I'm Australian, I'm going to call it I'national Black Cat Day (as in International). So here are my pics of my favourite black cat. His name was Boof (aka Barbari Thom Thumper). Unwriting week it's been. Shoulder surgery last week (I think), next shoulder next … Continue reading Black Cat Day
Month: October 2020
Not the song, the moon itself is appearing twice in the month. And more exciting, for those who wish to do dastardly scary stories on Halloween, the second full moon is 31 October (we are in Australia, so check your zone -- do you get a blue moon this month?).

Make it Easy on the Reader
The new story is up on pre-order, and I tried to take all the advice for making it easy on the reader. I'm not talking only the words that make up the story -- there's a ton of other stuff.

Older Persons Day?
It is. Or it was. 1 October 2020. Yes, yesterday. I forgot. It happens. I'm old enough to not worry about the little things. And what is the theme for this lovely little international day for oldies?
