Good morning, friends.

Wow, it's windy out there. I'm in central North Carolina and it's really whipping around here. I can only imagine what the folks on the coast are going through. I pray for everyone in the Northeast as Sandy comes ashore and can only hope the damage will not be as bad as forecasters have predicted.

Well, I have been working on Lynna's Rogue practically nonstop for the last couple of weeks. For me, writing books are a breeze compared to formatting them for ebook readers. Admittedly, I am new to this, but it seems like I have ended up formatting a 316 page book practically line for line. It has been a chore, but, thankfully, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Had a rather hectic weekend. My 11 year old granddaughter had invited a few friends over for her annual Halloween party at my house. I had just gone into the kitchen to prepare hotdogs for supper when I glanced out the window and saw my mom, who lives next door, lying on the ground. You can imagine what thoughts were racing through my mind as I flew out the back door. Luckily, she had only fallen off the porch. I say lucky because my first thought was a heart attack.

At our local hospital we were told that she had a broken rib and a small brain bleed in her head. They put her in a neck brace, strapped her to a board (she was not happy at all about this indignity) and whisked her to a Charlotte hospital via ambulance. My sister and I followed along behind where we waited, as one typically does in an emergency room. Finally, she was put to bed in her own room around 4:00am. Rough night to say the least. Thankfully, she was released the next day, sore, but happy to be headed home. It could have been a lot worse. Thank God that it wasn't.

Have a great week, everyone. And stay safe!
