Updates a-go-go

By Posted on 2 Comments 3 min read 35 views

It’s been a while. I apologize. I wasn’t sure how to write this post because it’s been so long. Like that phone call to an old friend you know you need to/want to make, but you just don’t know how to begin. Like your fingers can’t manage to punch in the digits. How does that phone work again? Is this thing on?

Over on a friend’s Patreon, I posted some crazy talk to the effect of “It’s never too late, even if you’re on the off-ramp to the Pearly Gates and St. Peter is waving you to your parking space.”

Hindight reminds me, rather flintily, that sentence is the biggest bunch of horse manure I’ve ever shoveled. But it got me writing this post, didn’t it?

Life Happened

This summer, I had my second bunion surgery and couldn’t get around the house well. I finished writing my first novel enough to send it along on its editorial process. I’ve begun writing the second in the series, as well as the third.

Will our project cat is up walking, playing, and getting into trouble. He’s still on insulin, but his dosage is dropping. He’s still time- and money-consuming, but when he comes to me with that kitty smile and eyes full of love, it’s all worth it.

But we didn’t escape “the down” after all.

Hidden Dark, Ferdinand’s daughter, passes at Old Friends

I don’t see any reference to Hidden Dark’s passing in such horse racing media such as the Blood Horse or The Paulick Report. Granted, 1995 Florida Derby and Travers Stakes champion Thunder Gulch passed away, so he’s better known.

Also, as I read Hidden Dark’s bio on the Old Friends website, I can’t say I’m suprised she didn’t make the news, but she is part of an important story.
