A Thankful Day


I am so excited I can't think to write my post for today.  I have been published I have a book that I wrote. And the proofs are on their way to me.  I would like to express my deepest thanks to all who have press me to write and to most of all Melissa Tandoc and Jamie Saloff who helped to make this happen. Melissa art work that has graced the pages of the book and Jamie’s editing of my writing they have made it all possible.
Here is the cover and the first chapter:




1 Andre

In the woods of the great northwest old growth forest, some time long ago, there was a squirrel named André.

He had a long bushy tail and a brownish gray coat. He lived in a hundred-foot-tall Douglas fir, in a hole that a woodpecker had made high in the big old tree. Now André was not liked by the other animals in the forest. André would watch and   when the chipmunks stored their nuts and berries, André would scurry down from the big old tree and steal what they had stored. When Steven the old
 grizzly bear came by the big old tree André would chase him away from his big tree by dropping pinecones on him. He would yell and chatter whenever Kathy the owl tried to sleep in the big old tree. He would not share the big old tree... He was very, very ornery, André.


 The book will be on sale at Amazon and a few other sources by Friday I hope.
I would to thank god for all the blessing he has given me and you who read and bless me with your comments. God bless
