Thanks for the Proofreading Help
Thanks to all of you who read a pre-release version of my book and caught errors and gave me suggestions!

I finished it and the Kindle version is now available on Amazon. It will be free on April 1 - April 3 if any of you want to get it, and I will soon have a paperback version available. If you read it and would like to leave an Amazon review, you can do it here.

I apologize if I left any of you out of the Acknowledgments:

Thanks also to Janine, my sisters (Carol, Linda, and Gail), KCowan, Lara, Marie, Bob, Andy, Rosie, REWahoo, Dudelsak, Sengsational, Coogie, and all the others I roped into providing free editing.
Dudelsak had some especially useful comments -- thanks, guy.

Kudos. :thumb: I like the two reviews that are posted on Amazon so I'll download it to my Kindle and give you my thoughts. :beer:

Congratulations. I don't have a Kindle, but I'll be sure to get whatever format I can, maybe a real book printed on paper? Do they still make those?

Sooooooo, being a tightwad, you will kindly remind us of the free version on 4-1 thru 3......

Al, the book is a hoot. :thumb: :thumb:

I might have to use this quote from the book in my signature, cause it sure describes my life many times. :)

Each day I wake up with nothing to do, and by the end of the day, I've only gotten half of it done.
And I'll have to try the "dinner mint" thing when I'm in one of those situations. ;)

Thanks for the great read. Will there be a sequel?

Ha ha. Just read the preview. Ron is correct, it's a hoot.
It appears we have something in common. I once fitted a steering wheel to a bike as well. I don't actually remember the mechanics of how I did it, it was about 50 years ago after all, but I think it probably involved some hammering and the forceful fitting together of parts not intended to be fit together.

Are there any plans for a paperback, or hardcover, print edition of your book? I don't own a Kindle, just not my cup of tea not an issue or anything, and I would love to read the book. If it is anything like your Christmas cards here, it will be well worth reading and adding to my library. Congratulations on the publication of your book, too.
