This has been a busy week or so. Working until Wednesday meant I only had a few days before the holiday really got into full swing. And tomorrow is... well, tomorrow is the beginning of a fun week. Christmas Eve. Christmas. New Year's Eve... and then we begin 2017.
Speaking of new things... Last night my son got engaged. His fiancee is a delightful young lady and they make a cute couple. From what he planned, she was going to go through a scavenger hunt at the zoo--in the evening, with all the holiday lights surrounding her--and at the end, he was going to propose. They had gone ring shopping a while ago, so barring an escaped tiger running amok and requiring the zoo to close, I'm assuming everything happened as planned. (I'll find out today.)
Do you have an interesting proposal story? Or a funny break-up story?
Here is the book cover and my blurb:
A Mother’s Tale
Ida Ho Tater had enough children to fill a bushel basket. She did her best with them. She really did. Ida kept them well-scrubbed and in a cool, dark place at all times, turning them on a regular basis so none of them went bad. (Her sister’s kids went au gratin! Shudder! She never wanted that to happen to her spudlets.)
But when the whole bunch of them fell in love with all things French, Ida tried to mash down on their obsession. She beat them. She whipped them, but nothing worked. The spudlets held tight to their love of the French language. The bread. The cheese. They refused to listen to their mama.
And when the fingerlings all decided to leave the family home and totally embrace the French lifestyle, Mama Tater knew that the end would not be pretty.
In fact, it ended with tragedy… (150 words)
And for those who like to work ahead (and I mean you, Val), here is the photo for next week's blurb:
