Hi there. It's a nice day here on May 18 which just happens to be a holiday in Canada. Being retired it doesn't change much for me. Will have some time for writing or maybe some editing, but I also have a small birthday party for my grandson this afternoon. He turns two.

Not much else to talk about theses days but Covid 19. That's about all the news has to offer. I'm not worried about getting it myself, but I know some people who need to isolate as they would likely not survive an attack. There is also so much data out there that I'm never sure who or what to believe. Should I wear a mask or not. Is it effective or can it make things worse. Does social distancing work and if so then why are there outbreaks among those who do.

Enough of that. I'm sure you are as sick of it as I am so on to better things. I am currently reading Jame Eyre. About twenty five percent done and so far am finding it interesting. I am also working on a tough puzzle. A thousand pieces of about 100 Volkswagen in little rectangles. So many colors the same all over the place. Getting close to the end, but it has been a fun challenge on those staying at home days.

I hope this finds all of you safe and sound.

Bye for now and talk again soon.

Hi there. It's May 11 and things might slowly be coming out of lock down around the world. We start on Thursday with some stores opening. Can't be soon enough for me. Just don't call it the new normal as so far, there is nothing normal about it.

I have added another chapter to Bentley, my spin off of the Tannion series as well I have edited a couple more chapters of Tannion Future Past getting ready to publish. I have had time to do more, but somehow not in the mood to do a lot of writing.

One thing that did happen though was I completed the genealogy project I have been working on for months and as much as it was interesting, I am very happy to be finished. I now have well over 35000 names in my genealogy file.

I have also restarted my Instagram page at Waynekind1 where I have added pictures my wife has taken on our walks and I am writing the script for my first YouTube video. I will be talking about the books I have read over the years giving some insight into what I like and the types of books out there that others might be interested in reading. I hope to have a few sessions to put on Youtube, but I need to make it interesting enough for others to want to watch.

Hope this finds you all safe and sound. Bye for now.

Hi there. Here it is May 4 and things are finally coming out of lock down. Couldn't come fast enough for me, but at least it's coming. Things need to get back to near normal as soon as possible. My near normal doesn't mean much change until this fall when I hope to be able to travel somewhere in the world. The summer is a stay at home time for the most part anyway.

Slowly doing some writing and getting closer to publishing the fourth book in the Tannion Series (Tannion Future Past). I was hoping to be done my genealogy project by now, but it just keeps on going, but the end looks to be in sight giving me more time to write. That's not saying I will take that time to write, but at least I will have it.

One of my grandson's is turning three next week so we have presents to buy and a party to go to next week. A very small party. He tells us he wants three presents to unwrap and it doesn't sound like it matters what is inside the paper as long as there is paper to rip off. 

Sold a book yesterday on Amazon. Sales are so slow that selling one is a big deal. Would love to sell more and hope to work into some advertising this summer.

That's all for now so talk again soon.
