The Long Weekend

Hello, Fire Enthusiasts. As always, I really appreciate you dropping by. I hope you and yours are well. For those keeping track at home I have finally begun to feel better. It’s been nearly three weeks since my allergy shot and it seems to have finally kicked in. Trust me when I tell you that it is no longer irritating to hang around with me. The constant clearing of the throat got on everybody’s nerves. And that was the least of my issues. In any event, I’m better.

It is Sunday night as I type this and I am enjoying the heck out of the long President’s Day Weekend after having worked the past two Saturdays. We just had my parents over for a bar-b-que which was nice. My dad came over early and he and I watched Skyfall together. Are you guys Bond fans? Did you enjoy the newest film? You have seen it, right? If not, come on over. We’ve got the whole Blu-ray Theater System now. Seriously, it very well might be the best Bond ever.

Speaking of films, my wife and I watched the new Soderbergh film, Side Effects. If you can get through the first half which deals with the main character’s depression, played very well by Rooney Mara - then you will enjoy the payoff at the end. The film was worth seeing, but I doubt I see it again. The beginning was just too depressing. Have you seen it? What did you think?

As you probably already know I haven’t been hanging about the social networks as often as I used to. That is due to the workload of the day job as well as my attempt to focus on my writing. I’m going over my WIP at the moment one last time before handing it off to beta readers. Sometime next month it will go to the editor. I’m really looking forward to having a paranormal novel this time around, especially one with romance. I haven’t abandoned my horror roots or anything. I just believe the market is huge there, and I think I’ve got something to add to the discussion, as it were. I shared a teaser last week, and promise to reveal further teasers in time.

For those of you who get a long weekend, enjoy it. I plan to spend Monday morning working on my manuscript before catching up on blogging. For those of you who are simply beginning a new week, I hope it’s a good one. Hopefully our paths will cross at least once.
We’ll talk soon.


  1. Glad to hear you're doing better! We took the fam to the James Bond one when it came out. I'd like to say upfront that we're really not Bond *people*, but we couldn't figure out what made this one so likable! The reviews said the same thing you did (it being one of the best) and it must be over our heads because we were flabbergasted. (Perhaps you can explain?)

    Two movies we watched recently (and loved) were ARGO and FRANK AND THE ROBOT. (I'd been waiting for the second one to come out for a while.)

    Have a blessed week!


  2. I like Daniel Craig as Bond and I'm looking forward to seeing this third installment!

    I recently got from Netflix: Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Both are really good! I enjoyed them a lot.

    Glad you're feeling better!

  3. Boy did I butcher that movie title! I was getting ready to take it to Redbox & realized the title is ROBOT & FRANK. lol!

  4. I feel so out of the loop. I keep meaning to watch so many movies, but I haven't had time for that.

    Glad you're feeling better, Jimmy. Here's hoping March will be easier for both of us.

  6. I enjoyed the Bond film although it wasn't my favorite.

    And still licking the frosting off my cake. That is the only reason for cake.

  7. So glad you are feeling better!
    I had a great long weekend, though my youngest got the stomach flu at the end so yuck.

    I read a lot over the weekend, but I should have also seen a movie!

  8. Hi James,

    Glad you had a good weekend and are now feeling better. Hope to catch up soon

  9. I might have to give Side Effects a viewing. I'm not much of a Bond fan, my dad tortured me with all of the older films when I was younger.

    Very glad that you're back to full speed, Jimmy.

  15. Jimmy, it was so nice to hear from you! I haven't been around the blogosphere as much lately, either, so you're not alone in that. Glad you enjoyed the long weekend!

    I haven't seen either movie yet. We rarely see movies in the theatre, because it's too pricey, so we wait til they're on DVD. That reminds me to put Skyfall on my list!

    Take care, my friend :)


Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate you taking the time. I'll get back to you here or on one of the other social networks. It's not like we're not on all of them, right? ;) Also, if you're here to give me an award - bless you. However, your friendship and visits are more than enough. Thanks and blessings.
