Goodysworld Goes Public

Where do I begin? Saturday was a very eventful day. It was a day of racing and revelry. My wife and our friend Kim both beat their personal best times in the Red Ribbon Run, despite the fact that it was “Oh my god” cold out there. My wife took second place in her age group and Kim took third. I am as proud as can be of both of them.

After the race, we went to check out my mom’s new house. It is very nice and much roomier than the one she had before. We had the pleasant surprise of arriving while my grandmother was there, so we were able to spend a little time with both of them. I don’t get to visit with either one of them as much as I should. It’s not like they live in another state, but the live just far enough that with our crazy schedules, just dropping by to say hi, isn’t really an option.

Last night was the big event at Oktoberfest. You may or may not remember that I had T-shirts made up to advertise my websites in preparation of the release of Drums of the Nunne’hi. As luck with have it, life got in the way with some of the team members and only three of us were able to attend. We had a blast, though. It was a crazy night for dealing with the extremely intoxicated. My wife found a groupie in the crowd. No, it is not what you might think; her groupie was a girl. She had a young lady that kept coming to her to be served and continually tried to slip my wife tip money. We aren’t supposed to take tips, which my wife told her but she insisted. Oddly enough, I am totally alright with my wife having a female groupie. : D

The T-shirts did generate a fair amount of interest, though I am not sure how much of it was for my writing and how much was for patrons to come up with interesting answers to the slogan on the back of the shirt (What’s your fantasy?). Drunk women seem to have some very…very vivid imaginations. Ah, such is life. All in all, I would say it was a success. I can’t wait to do it again next year.

How is everyone else’s weekend going?

Doh! I didn't take a single picture. I will try to get a picture of it this afternoon when I get home.

As for you having one...to paraphrase The hottie elf on Lord of the Rings, "If you want it, come and get it!" lol.

Just kidding, I have a few set aside here, shoot me an e-mail with the particulars and I will see what we can work out.

I wish I could have been a walking billboard for your book. I sure do miss you and the family. Hope all this gets you a lot of exposure for your book and website.
