|I had to race down to Phoenix this last week as my mom is on her last leg. My brother told me to hurry, so I did. She looked pretty bad but was still upright. Unfortunately, she didn’t know who I was, but I kept my dad company. Mom’s pallor was a bit gray and she’s extremely frail. I was roasting, but she was cold. That’s no surprise.|
I was only gone for a couple days. I left early Tuesday morning and returned Friday afternoon. The second I got home, Stanley and I were back into the woods. We lost a lot of leaves in that short time, but the view from the airplane was spectacular as we descended over Fairbanks. This is the view of the Fort Wainwright golf course and some of the army base. The tree colors are much brighter in person. My camera and the airplane window dampened the brightness. It wasn’t gloomy at all.
Have some birch trees! We have thousands on our property. It’s impressive and I have yet to tap one for birch syrup. I gotta learn that skill because I wouldn’t have to walk more than a hundred yards from the house.

The insider team had some comments on this one, too. I think they liked it.
“A great read and a nice wrap up to the series. I was pulled into the story too much and ended up enjoying the story rather than proofreading.”
“Holy Hell that was a ride! I don’t know how many times I held my breath or my heart raced but I’m sure you almost gave me a heart attack!! What an epic finish.”
“Fun stuff. You really hit your stride.”“Wow! What a ride. Fantastic conclusion to the series.”

The Expanding Universe 8I appreciate the good people who want to read the stories from the first seven volumes. That is awesome! But, a big but here, these are only available for three months as an ebook as I only license very limited rights from the authors. I cannot legally publish the ebook version of their stories beyond those three months. The paperbacks are not exclusive, however and are the only way to go for the previous volumes. That being said, I have full control over my short stories so here are thirteen of my short stories in a single download for you to enjoy.
