The winner of the contest is John Bauer fromWilmington NC. He will be included in the coming comedy book, Senior TouringSociety as a contributing author for the short story from the contest. Also, thanks to the other authors that joined in the fun. I may do this again so keep your pencils and pens ready.


Christmas alone again this year as it has been for past three years. I was supposed to have dinner with my friend Laura, but I think she didn’t feel well and backed out. New Years will be the same.

Meanwhile, I have over $100 in gift certificates to eat out. Thanks to my children and friends.
