Had a Day Away

Did Some Picking, Saw a Movie…

Sorry Josh and Dan and Billy, I went picking again. Nothing that I know of that is great, but a trunk-load of good stuff.

Saw a really funny action/adventure movie called “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” which actually was better than we had hoped it would be. It had some pretty great heart, actually.

So a fun day away from computer screens until I came here to do this blog and answer a few emails.

Back full time at all this tomorrow. Night.

    I agree with you about The Hit Man’s Body Guard. I saw it Tuesday and enjoyed the film immensely. Great character interactions, each character changing the other’s life. What made the film even better is that it was a tax deductible expense for me as a professional writer.
