Well, once again I have fallen way behind on blogs and I am trying to make a point to catch them all back up. I think this will be much easier once winter rolls in because there is way too much to do in the summer. All summer I have the Bristol Renaissance Faire, Car Shows, and yard work. Not to mention the continual battle with the rabbits and the various things I need to do around the house or with my son. I always seem to run out of time.
Took Bernice, my 1940 Oldsmobile (all original) to one of the local car shows and got third place. Unfortunately I missed the big car show I normally put her in because we were on vacation, it’s nice to see that even if she isn’t the prettiest or flashiest at the show that she definitely has admirers.

Well the Oldsmobile is done. Her joints have been replaced and she no longer feels like she’s all over the road. Next project on her is either going to be adjusting the steering box or new tires…guess it depends on funds. Also changed the 20 year old oil while we were under there and corrected a few ‘jury rigs’ that the last owner did to her.
As for me, doing okay on the writing front. Picked up a few more clients so I’m keeping busy. Between housework, yard work (and there is a lot) and writing, I am almost continually on the go. My only problem is keeping myself on track and not distracted by video games, blogs etc.
Things have been hectic since my last post, I haven’t even had a chance to read or respond to any of my normal blogs. I’ve had a lot of writing to do lately, most of it ghost writing so I can’t even lay claim to it, but it pays the bills.
For a mother’s day/birthday gift my hubby bought me the front end assembly for my Oldsmobile, so once that shows up I’ll be spending a lot of time of underneath her replacing 70-year-old joints (if only it was that easy for the rest of us). Once done it will be a lot safer to take her to the car shows and I won’t have to worry about breaking something every time I hit a bump.
This is going to be my last free weekend for the next several months. The only thing I have planned is some yard work from here out I have every weekend booked, and some of them are double booked. It’s going to be a busy summer.
Not much else to say so I’m just going to sign off. Have a good one.
