Things You Should Know

The heat wave is here in the near south. I woke up at 0400 to 76 and by 0500 it was 80. Supah!

I might melt. Sugar melts, you know. Especially when you mix it with humidity. Sticky. Gross. I say this as I wipe sweat from my brow and my bewbs. Ew. Gross. The AC might be on the fritz.

If you venture outside, be safe and stay hydrated.

In the national news, all media outlets are analyzing the Trump train and most of it is very right or very left. Several have nothing positive to say and others are trying to read lips when panning the crowd and candidates when they are not at the podium.

Meanwhile, I find Hillary's choices of VP candidates interesting and at the same time milquetoast. I guess she doesn't want anyone to outshine herself. For some reason, I thought America would be wowed by her selection. Not so sure that is going to happen. I guess we will wait and see.

The Boogie Man series is being revamped and reworked in time for a re-release sometime this year. Two more books in the works, but I must admit progress is slow. I don't know if I can keep up with my life. Sigh.

With all the nonsense and violence in America...the latest from Uniform Stories focuses on a version of the police you may or may not know. Check it out here. 

You say it, Bill!

Please pray for our law enforcement. It is damn frightening out there right now. My anxiety level is through the roof. What the erpie derp is wrong with people?

A couple of book reviews are on the way. Thanks to the great weather issue, I should get them finished this weekend. Yippee!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Strong Work

Whew! I had to blow the dust off in here.

I apologize for my absence. With life getting in the way of fun and the recent slaughtering of cops, I pretty much had the wind knocked out of my sails.

Plus...school is starting up and time for me to become a volleyball mom. Sort of. I kind of like the background and don't get too crazy like the other mothers. I submit my baked goods and sit at the top row of the bleachers next to the exit. They think I'm weird. But why, Fargo, don't you want to shake your pom poms and run the concession stand? Yeah. No. But let me donate to your cause and give you sticky stars for being a better mother than me. I love to watch my kiddo and support her all the way, but being a rock star school mom is still a work in progress.

My latest from uniform stories is here. It was a struggle as I went on vacation and rushed, so I apologize profusely for its lack of pizzazz.


That's about it.

My life in a paragraph.

Fall races are coming up. I decided to skip the rest of the summer ones because even at 0700 it is hotter than a witch's tit. I ran one in Wyoming heat at 93 degrees and about died. Call me a wuss. I admit it.

So...hopefully I will be in tip top shape for fall shenanigans.

In the meantime...hug a cop. But announce the incoming...or be thrown to the ground. Sudden movements are met with caution nowadays.

Be safe. Be alert. Be vigilant.

WE See You Haters

What do you say on a Monday morning with regard to the news yesterday of more LEO killed by some lunatic?

My heart is heavy. The last two years have created an anxiety in my heart for all police officers out there fighting the dragon. I have never felt this way. It is a very uneasy feeling and drives my thoughts to get back in uniform to work alongside all of you. I leave you today with this list of HONEY-DOs:

1. Please train like a warrior. It is so important to be mentally and physically prepared for battle. You cannot afford to falter.

2. Take care of your home life. Tell them you love them. Keep a clean house. Be prepared for anything. Have your financial ducks in a row. Have a will. Enjoy quality time with loved ones.

3. Be a community unifier. It's my new catch phrase.  Be it.

4. Take care of yourself and have some hobby or sport to occupy some of your free time to clear your mind.

5. Do not infect your heart with hate.

6. Don't procrastinate.

7. Start today.

Put your prayers up, good thoughts, well wishes, and fairy dust for all law enforcement. Many of us wave the American flag and blue line every day. If shit goes down, don't worry...there are many out there who will stand beside you. We have your back.

Be safe. Be vigilant. Be alert.
