The Journal, Saturday, 10/7

Hey Folks,

Well, it’s Saturday. A very short post today, maybe making up for the longer ones recently.

Today was to be my first day as a nonsmoker (leaving cigars behind) but I thought that might not be fair to my visiting grandchildren. (grin)

So I’ll make a trip later to Tombstone or Sierra Vista to buy enough sticks to get me through the weekend. I’m looking forward to leaving the habit behind me.

Ah, after the sun came up, I found out my son and one adult grandson are here, but the little ones aren’t. So maybe I’ll buy just enough cigars to get through today (since I already had one this morning).

Anyway, nonwriting day today and probably tomorrow. I’m not worried. The novel story is in a good place, so I can easily jump back in pretty much at will.

Back tomorrow.
