We had a great reunion this weekend. It was a small one this year, but one cousin brought his new girlfriend. They’re both in their early fifties. She seemed very nice and we all got along well with her. When he came back Sunday morning he told us he’d asked her to marry him the night before and she’d said yes – that hasn’t happened before. We all thought it was funny she had met all those relatives and she still said yes! To be honest I like the new girlfriend better than I do my cousin and I’m fighting the urge to warn her that he’s a complete deadbeat. But they aren’t planning to marry until fall of 2015, maybe she’ll see for herself.
I was talking to a few close cousins about my books what an aunt joined us. She wanted to know more and I bought out my cards and gave her one. She looked it over and said loudly, “Spanking stories, what are spanking stories?”
I told her, “I guess you’ll have to buy a book and read it if you can’t figure it out for yourself.” Several others ask for cards. It was so funny, a few years ago I would have died if anyone in the family had any idea what I wrote about, now I’m guessing some of them will read the books and I as happy as can be.
And on a weird note, Nick began therapy on his shoulder. One exercise he does with my father’s old cane. He lies on the bed and slowly brings his arms over his head holding the cane. As he lay down he made some crack to me and I said something like, “I’m going to beat you with that.” Mollie was standing at the door and just rolled her eyes at us. Shortly after my sister arrived. We heard Mollie telling her, “Dad lying on the bed with a cane and Mom’s threating to beat him.” Nick and I nearly lost it. Mollie does have a way with words.
Looks like the forth Cassie book will be out soon. I’m hoping to get the edits early this week. I’ll give you more information as soon as I know.
