HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM MY COWBOY AND ME
My children continue to amaze me. I was there when they were born. No sedatives. In a small hospital so there is no way they got switched at birth with the child of someone really cool. Nope, they’re mine. I get credit right? Well, My Cowboy, too.
The grandbabies are cuter than ever.
I guess our big news is that My Cowboy is going to semi-retire this year. He’s still going to keep the cow/calf herd but his nephew is buying in so My Cowboy will have a new partner and (the hope is) less of a demanding work schedule. He hopes to be able to take time off when he wants to without quite so much guilt!
Above is a picture of My Cowboy and me from Christmas with the four grandkids.
As for news from this year, we went to Washington D.C. last summer to see the renegade Connealy sister who lives far from her mama!!!
We had a wonderful time and we’d never been to the nation’s capital before so it was wonderful. Seeing my daughter and her husband was the best part of course.
(It really was, they’re way better than the Washington Monument!) We also took our annual Minnesota fishing trip and we went to Nashville for a writer’s conference. I’d never been to Nashville or D.C. so it was a broadening experience for me.
I listed three trips but honestly out of a whole year, trust me, we are mostly just here at home all the time, typing…and I really like it here.
I have four books releasing next year. And one of them is a novella collection, probably coming near Christmas 2017 which will have six or eight of my novellas collected in one book—which is why I’m only counting it as one of the four. Anyway, that’ll take me over fifty books in print, which is a fun milestone! That’s enough Mary news to satisfy most anyone (I’m sure).
God bless you this Holiday Season
HAPPY NEW YEAR
