Well, a happy Monday to one and all.
Weatherwise, Central PA is in a cooldown phase. Today's temps will only reach the mid 60s (F) and tomorrow our high is predicted to top off at 55 (F). Less then seasonal temps are in the forecast for the next few days. Fret now, the warmth will return.
Work was so, so. I got a measure. Supposedly my sales went through the roof, but there was no way we could find what jobs actually sold, so I'm expecting a $26,000 adjustment down today. Rats. While flooring was snoozing along, our Garden department was popping. They were constantly calling over the walkies for assistance in the mulch pit. The mulch pit is a 200 foot driveway between pallets of mulch. The customer makes his purchase and then drives down this driveway so our associates can load his car, truck, or trailer with the bags of mulch he bought. Working in the mulch pit is strenuous.
I don't usually look at the reviews my books get on Amazon since I know some people will like what I write, others will not. However, 2 years ago, several months after The Body in the Well was published, I was putzing around on the computer and let my curiosity get the better of me and found a review for that book that was almost malicious. In one paragraph in the first chapter of that book, Max Sullivan, one my 2 main protagonists changed careers. He went from being an RN working with a heart team to becoming a Physical Therapist. Someone didn't like that. I was told to "make friends with a Physical Therapist." Since I was about to hold open auditions for a PT who wanted to be friends, I blew it off. Well, a year and a half later a PT has entered the picture and we are actually becoming friends. His name is Jon, and thanks to him Max Sullivan is becoming a more 3 dimensional character in The Body in Motion. Oh, and here's that review. Click to embiggen the hostility.
Finally, something interesting made it into The Hill yesterday, a Republican warning other Republicans they need to be extremely cautious when pushing their priorities regarding women's health care. This is one of the strongest warnings I've ever seen coming from a Republican. Will they listen? Absolutely not. This is a party destined for death and destruction.
