Monday Meeting ~~ October 26, 2015

Hello, People! I do hope your weekend was fabulous and that the start of the week goes well for you. Shall we get this meeting started?


Monday Meeting


Grab a drink and a snack and sit a spell.

First, news on the husband. We received the biopsy results of his colonoscopy this past Thursday. It wasn’t the best news, but it wasn’t the worst. He has what they call a “suspicious” tumor in his colon. It’s not classified as cancerous, but it has the potential to become cancerous as it does have cancer cells in it. So the doctor has decided to treat it as cancerous. Confused yet? Yeah, lots of mumbo jumbo for what I would call a pre-cancerous tumor.

They will be operating to remove it soon. Unfortunately the spot it is in means they will Β have to remove one-third of his colon. First, though, is a CT scan of his stomach and his lungs to make sure he doesn’t have any more tumors. That won’t happen until the 9th of November. So stay tuned for more updates and thank you for all your warm thoughts for him. We both appreciate it. Another bump in the road of a very bumpy road the last three years, but we will deal with it as best we can.

My book, A Case of Deceit is done and formatted and ready for sale on Amazon on the 30th. Yay!! It is also ready now for buying as a paperback. Just click on the button on my sidebar and enjoy! The sales of my book will help pay for gas money in the coming months for the husband and me to the various doctors and hospital visits we are sure to have to make. Thank goodness I got it done in time. Thank you for pre-ordering or purchasing it. I do hope you enjoy and please, be kind to this author and leave a review! πŸ™‚

I have started my third book in the DeeDee Watson, PI, series. I’m excited for this one as I think it is even better than the others. (Which I hope means I’m getting better) It’s set on a cruise ship with another cast of unforgettable characters including Dee’s mother. Wait until you meet her. πŸ˜‰ I love her. She’s actually a take on my own mother, but shhhh don’t tell her ok? She’s much more…..um…..well you’ll see. Let’s just say she’s nothing like Dee.

Are you ready for Halloween? Do you even celebrate it? I used toΒ but don’t any longer. Just too tired and wore out lately. But, I love seeing all the stuff out there for it. It’s still one of my favorite holidays. I love all the ghoulish stuff. Wonder what that says about me? ha! We don’t have any kids come around. Don’t see that happening much anymore truth to tell. I think it’s more school activities and private parties. Which is safer these days, but such a shame. I remember going trick or treating in the dark and enjoying all the kids in the neighborhood doing the same. Very few houses didn’t participate back then. It was safe and a lot of fun. Sometimes the changing of the times is not a good thing.

I’ve received quite a lot of birthday cards for my mother the last few weeks. A big heartfelt thank you for all of you who have sent something! I will be mailing them all to her later this week. She knows she is getting something, but doesn’t know what yet. She’s going to love this! I will, of course, let you know what she says when she receives them. So stay tuned for that! You guys are wonderful!

That’s about it for this week. Let me know what’s going on in your little slice of the world! Above all, have some fun people!

  1. Thinking of you and your husband. My husband had bladder cancer about 10 years ago. Thank goodness a section of his colon made a new bladder. Sending you hugs and happy thoughts. ❀


  2. You guys just can’t get a break! I’ll keep your husband in my thoughts and look for your post telling us all went well.

    Good to hear you are working on another story in your series as I love the characters you have created. And while you are spending your hard earned profits on gas to get to doctor appointments be sure to do a little something nice for yourself too.

    I loved going trick or treating and some still do but like you said it’s not as popular as it used to be. I still remember the streets full of kids, I mean they were really crowded not so today. Yes, the schools and churches hold parties and the towns here have parades with activities usually at the fire station. Even the malls have their stores hand out candy which to me is weird to visit stores and to be inside instead of out braving the elements to earn your treats.

    I look forward to hearing your mother’s reaction. πŸ™‚ Got mine in the mail a bit late so I hope it gets to you in time.

    Now take a deep breath and have a great night.


    1. Thank you Lois. I did receive your package for Mom on Friday! Yay! And thank you so much! She is going to love it. πŸ™‚
      Things are a bit rough lately, but I always say to myself….nothing is forever, even the bad stuff. So we keep doing what we can.
      Taking that deep breath! Thank you again. πŸ™‚


  3. Just of luck to hubby … and continued strength to you. I like Halloween … but just don’t get into the costume thing. … meanwhile, I’m trying to ramp up again.


  4. Damn! I forgot to send a card for your mom. Sorry about the husband, but it’s good that it’s not entirely cancerous and that there’s something they can do about it. Fingers Xed.


  5. They can do so much these days so hope the prognosis will be good for your husband.
    Exciting that your book is ready to go; I know it will do well.
    As for Halloween, I suppose it is a sad reflection of our times that we can’t let our kids go out knocking on doors, although here the mums or older siblings go with them to watch over them. ‘Trunk or Treat’ has arrived here for organisations, although I never heard of it until now.
    Personally, I think Winnie and her sisters have a lot to do with kids not being allowed to roam the streets on Halloween! I just love Hocus Pocus; it’s my favourite Halloween film and maybe even one of my all-time favourites. I know what we will be watching on the evening of the 31st. Happy Halloween!


  6. Best of luck with hubby, Jackie. I’ll be thinking of you both and sending love xxx My hubby has had pancreatic cancer and survived, so if that can happen there is a lot of hope in the world πŸ™‚
