Man With His Dog Friends

It has been months since I've put anything substantive down on paper or onto the computer.  I have two novels and a memoir "in the can" but haven't made any effort, at all, to publish anything.  I may have writer's block, or perhaps editor's block, but I can't seem to get off the dime and do anything with my writing projects.

Speaking of projects, I have at least a half dozen "handyman" projects awaiting action here at the house, in the yard, in the garage, in the shed, in the basement, or on the pickup truck.

In the spring I put off projects "until it quits raining," I said.  Then I wanted to wait until it was warmer in the summer.  Now I look forward to autumn, with those summer projects still uncompleted.  I kind of start-up a lot of things, but I am a poor finisher; like I fear I might die once every project is completed and there would be no reason to keep on breathing.  

Here I am with my dogs, CheyAnna, a Dalmatian-Boston Terrier cross, (called a Dalton Terrier), and big Coby, a Lab-Rottweiler cross.  Both of them think they ought to be lap-cats, if we would just allow them to be all that they could be.  We do not let the big guy onto the bed.  CheyAnna, however, gets whatever she wants.


  1. I'm the queen of unfinished projects. I'm sure I can compete with your list.

  2. A classic case of procrastination!!!!!!!!!
    Just start. …. Start with a 20 minute time slot. Once the project gets started, it will gain momentum.

    BTW, thanks for (entrecard) ad on my site. As I do always for my advertisers, I am leaving a comment and a mystery gift.

    Have a nice day.

  3. Doug, I have an award for you on my site: and congratulations you have some great blogs!

    God bless,

  4. Haha! You are like my husband too. He starts doing projects but I do not think he completes one quick. Anyway, thanks for the comment in my post. I am not sure if the TMPS feature applies to the spare tire of my car also. That would be cool! But surely the back tire on the left had low air pressure.
    By the way, your dogs are cute!



I would be very pleased if you leave a comment. I will read every one too!!!
