The SCARLET HATTED LADY and TWO NEW TATTERED AND LOST BOOKS


Dear Boy

When I am gone
no more to see
Look at this card
and think of me

TWO NEW TATTERED AND LOST BOOKS

I'm happy to finally be able to announce the publication of two more books in the Tattered and Lost series. I would have loved to have announced them before Christmas, but then those that were receiving them as gifts would have lost their surprise.

Volume 1, Tattered and Lost: Vernacular Photographs, which was originally published via Blurb, is now at a larger trim size with more content. You can peruse the volume at Amazon.

Volume 4, Tattered and Lost: Cakes, Picnics, and Watermelon, is a fine example of my "obsession" with silly categories. Wander on over to Amazon and take a look.

Also still available are volume 2, Tattered and Lost: Childhood and volume 3, Tattered and Lost: Telling Stories. Each are available at CreateSpace and Amazon. You'll find links to all four in the column to the left.

The SCARLET LETTER


"A" leads the way and "x" marks the spot. Another card that would have the "war on Christmas" nuts foaming at the mouth. Such a simple and lovely greeting, but there's that word "xmas" taunting them. 100 years ago? Not so much.

JOYFUL Greetings


If over 100 years ago someone sent you a holiday card which did not say Merry Christmas was there a "war" on Christmas? Of course not. There's just a rabid insane group of people these days who are unwilling to accept anything but a narrow point of view, especially when they see dollar signs as their goal. Sometimes the stupidity so prevalent today makes my head expand to twice its size with an explosion imminent.

So "Joyful Greetings."
