Bogus thoughts bouncing willy-nilly through my head


It certainly has been awhile since I have posted. Career choices, perhaps, or unnecessary thoughts bouncing willy-nilly through my head have infected my ability to post.Yes, I meant to use the word infected.

There have been a multitude of career choices bouncing around in my head, infecting my thought patterns with bogus ideas of changing my career. I ask myself “What career are you wanting to change? You have no career. You’re retired.”

What my brain has been trying to sort out, probably, I can’t honestly say that I always understand what is on my brains mind, is what I can do with so much time on my hands.

I have tried different things:

Writing short stories

Writing ebooks a little bit longer than the stories. Longer short stories perhaps.

Voice acting, voiceover

Narrating audiobooks through ACX for Audible.com and Amazon, ten books in all, was fun but not very much money for the work involved. (Projects were done on a split of royalties, no sales)

Back to the point. None of these things have been actual career choices, because I am not looking for a career. I’m looking to offer my services, whatever they may and hopefully useful (above all legal, moral and ethical) on a full time basis.  With me deciding what constitutes full time. Not working for someone else but offering expertise where I can links other helpful resources where I can.

I also have a plethora of questions of my own. Many, at the moment, about the recent election. Not political questions but WTH (what, why, where or who the heck?) questions.

•WTH are these protesters protesting? The election was held, a winner was declared. If your candidate didn’t win it doesn’t mean your world will end or it was a personal attack on you. Look at it this way, if you are only protesting because you have no job, perhaps there will be one when the new guy takes office. Wouldn’t you feel silly then?

Anyway WTH said your candidate was supposed to win there are no hereditary rulers in this country, no matter what the losing party thinks. Besides, she will probably write a book about the experience and make millions while all these college students flunk out because they couldn’t handle the stress of their candidate losing and wound up permanently in a crying room with a coloring books and a box of crayons. How does that particular generation expect to handle the pressures of governing the future world when they can’t even handle the stress of someone they don’t even know meets reality face to face?

Oh my! Do you see what I mean? So many bogus and useless thoughts just bouncing willy-nilly through my head. Perhaps I could use a coloring book, a box of crayons and,just maybe, a hug. Sigh!!

Did I mention that I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog?

Next time. Hopefully.

 

A Book Review – Shadow Of Vengeance


ImageAs a matter of disclosure, I narrated this audio book. The idea, characters and locations of the story all came from the wonderfully creative mind of Will Riley Hinton, of whom I am a big fan, as did the first two books of the Rocky Mountain Adventure Series. As a matter of timing, this book was released as I was having an emergency appendectomy. Both outcomes were well accepted. The book review is below. The appendectomy will not reviewed here.

Bear Rollins finds himself in the shadow of vengeance of a man named Cannon, a mountain man who had been involved in the kidnapping of young Melody Branson of Wyoming and theft of a specially bred prize stallion which was to be the seed of a new line of horse stock and the foundation of the future of her father’s ranch. Bear thwarted that venture which left Cannon’s gang of cutthroats dead and Cannon with a thirst for revenge.

With two new partners in crime, Cannon is bent on kidnapping Melody again and killing Bear Rollins.

Everything seems to be going as planned.

Follow the action in this, the final installment of the Rocky Mountain Adventure Series.

Will this final installment be the final chapter of Bear Rollins’ life?
