I need caffeine.

Quiet night in here.

Seems to be the trend just lately.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Yes, that does appear to be a trend, Gyppo.

Perhaps booze has fallen out of favor with writers. Wait! What am I saying? That's . . . that's . . . well, blasphemous, for want of a better term.

Bones. Quick! Gimme a gin-and-something.  :)

Just dropping in to sit by the fire for a while and have a quiet nightcap, and maybe listen to a tune or two.  Nothing too raucous this evening.

Feeling gently nostalgic for a while before quietly slipping off into the night.

If I get nostalgic, it's usually for something like this:

That's a timely tune, Herron.  We'll be turning the page in a few days to say goodbye to one of our family legends, my cousin Tony, who died at the weekend.  Two years younger than me.  I'm glad he's off the hook, feeling no more pain.  A fast growing and inoperable cancer which would have left him paralysed from the neck down if he'd survived.  That would have been no life for our family  'Action Man', ex Navy, ex Army.

"Bones, here's a wad of notes behind the bar so anyone who wants can raise their glass to a man who didn't suffer from false modesty, who enjoyed his legendary status, but was genuinely good at many things.  Apart from his inability to 'keep it in his trousers' he was in so many other ways a proper gentleman.

"To Tony."
