That warm weather mentioned last week; we’re taking a break from it now. There is another important local event next week. It is called a Schutzenfest.
The mother is adjusting to the reality that the teen is on Summer Vacation now. The mother is hoping for more work and is grateful that a few people have paid her to help them learn English.
Kiel and Gezka are a hoped for, but iffy SF series of novels now. It seems cruel to invent a bunch of characters and then just leave them there in Limbo without any books ….but if they manifest, I want to be their author and I want to be paid real advances from real publishing companies who will do a lot of the marketing, but not all of it. The shocking truth is that I want them to produce and sell hard covers and paperbacks. Having been weaned on paperbacks and old enough to remember the song ‘Paperback writer’….well, I tended to think about the publisher producing the paperbacks more than the hard covers.
