What a blessing that they were able to have a nice weekend. I understand about the exhaustion. Even as a kid, I did not like the long trip to Myrtle Beach, but once we were there, I did not want to leave. You have some good-sounding weather; lucky you! We are supposed to have some high temps for next week, so I am glad we have central air conditioning. I am a wimp when it comes to high temps. Heat just adds to my exhaustion, too. Thinking of your parents and praying for rest for them.

Just in time for September, this week's weather forecast is for highs in upper 70's and lows in upper 50's. After storms early this morning, we should be dry the rest of the week. Not perfect weather but getting closer.

Have a blessed day all.

I love TSO and would love to attend a concert. My ringtone is Christmas Eve Sarajevo. The eBook sounds like something I would like to read. I will check to see if I can buy it, but not tickets.

Hey Everyone

We've prepared a surprise for all of our loyal fans.

This year with your ticket you will receive an Amazon Kindle e-book version of TSO Creator Paul O'Neill's first novella, "Merry Christmas Rabbi," which will be released on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013. Want to read "Merry Christmas Rabbi" but don't have a kindle? You can read the eBook on your computer, smartphone or tablet using one of the free Kindle Reading Apps.

"Merry Christmas Rabbi" tells the story of a fateful Christmas Eve and how one of the craziest gambles in human history leads to a second chance for a troubled youth who finds himself beyond the point of no return. In this novella, Paul O'Neill spans generations, from WWII Germany to the modern inner-city, and fearlessly dives into the darkest places of the human condition to spin a modern parable about how, even in the grip of great evil, redemption is possible and the spark of hope can burn brightly.

After you purchase your tickets you will receive an email confirmation with your order number as usual. Your download code for the eBook, however, will not be sent out until later

A couple of days before the official release date for "Merry Christmas Rabbi" (Tuesday, November 26th, 2013) you will receive an email with your redemption code(s) along with instructions about how to redeem your download.

You get a download for every ticket you buy so don't forget to share the book with your friends.

We had a nice day in Port Huron, daughters computer is working really well again thanks to all the new parts she picked up.
Did not get to go to very many stores, but had a nice lunch and time with my girls.

forgot to mention I now have a stationary bike. I really need to get in some exercise and hoping I will stick to this. The bike was free and works well, not a fancy one but good enough. One thing for sure, I need to find a good cushion for that seat!!

Yes for the fall weather and the leaves. We don't get a lot of fall colors here in northern California, not like we did when I was growing up in NC. At least, though, we do get some cooler temperatures.
