Wow! It's been a while since I've entered anything. Now that we almost have COVID-19 behind us—PLEASE GET YOUR VACCINES NOW!— I'm bringing my readers up to date:
I've written two new books during my hiatus. In 2020 I published a book about my late brother-in-law, BATS WHEELER. Married to my Twin-Sister, Bats was a terrific man with many friends and attributes. According to my readers, I seem to have captured Bats in my book and pleased my Twin lots. This book is available on this site.
My recent book was brought out in Maine at our house on Shipyard Road. with a Book-Signing 'Gala' (yes, that's what someone called it) on June 26. I sold 55 books that day and continue selling them in local stores. This book is by and about our Near-Neighbors here in Mid-Coast Maine.
This book is also available. Pat's wonderful painting of old buildings at Gamage Shipyard graces my cover. Painted in 2003, the original hangs in our living room and we're planning to make GiClee prints available.
Pat and I have read many books in the last couple of years. She prefers novels and I prefer non-fiction with a special emphasis on Maine authors: Chase, Coffin, Duncan, Roberts, Stowe, Jewett, and E.B. White some of my favorites.
We're looking forward to reconnecting with our adult-children this summer and our grandchildren. Our Grandson, Charlie and his lovely wife. Megan, will deliver our first great-grandchild in August if all goes well.
On the sad side, we lost my first cousin, John Haskell Wilson this winter from COPD. John was a very special guy and we miss him.
All for now.
