CAROL'S DAVID PUT TOGETHER MY HAMMOCK

Lovers . . . and Other Strangers,

Today my buddy Carol's David, as opposed to someone else's David, came over to put together my hammock and help me with some other stuff because he's good at those things and I'm not and I pay him money.

After he finished the hammock, I insisted that he test it. He begged me to run in the house to grab my teddy bear and camera and take the following photos of him, which I already posted on Facebook:



I am now a little bit afraid that Carol's David will never help me out again. (He is Carol's David because he is her son. I hope that eliminates any confusion.)

So, anydavid, if you live in or around Jacksonville, Florida (during the winter), or in or around Milwaukee, Wisconsin (during the summer), and you need a superior carpenter and all around great guy who even took me to the post office to send a box to The Hurricane that was too heavy for me to carry, let me know. I'll help you get in touch with him so you can hire him.

Man, his foot looks gigantic in that second photo.

I thank you for your kind attention to THIS POST about Brandon Ax's books. His sale on the first two books in the Light Bringer saga runs through tomorrow, which is Tuesday, April 21st.

Brandon says:

In celebration of the cover and the new book, I am doing a sale for both Elemental and Ashes. The sale starts today April 17 and ends Tuesday, April 21. I hope any who has not had a chance to read any of the books in the Light Bringer Saga, can catch up before book three. 

I'm quite proud to be Brandon's editor. It makes me happy when you buy his books. His plots are so interesting that I can't help smiling while I edit his books, except when the story gets a little scary and then I use my anxious face.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

P.S. I miss you all. I am hard at work and hope to return to you on a regular basis some time during May.

  1. To me, the fact that David may have giant feet just makes him more stable as a carpenter. There's a lot less chance of falling down on the job. Too bad he is so far away.

    1. I hate it when Carol and Carol's David go away during the summer, but I can't blame them. Sometimes when I talk to Carol while she's in Milwaukee, she'll tell me the temperature is sixty degrees or even cooler. I am so jealous.

  2. And a hammock for a break just now. Hooray for Carol's Davids.

  3. Work has always seemed to interfere with leisure time.:-) Take care of what needs your attention, Janie. We will be here! xo Nellie

  4. That looks like a cozy hammock, a great place to relax and enjoy the sun.

    1. Soon, it will be too hot to lie outside, so I'll use the Wooters man's pool. The hammock will be here when it cools off again during October or November.

  5. I miss you, too, Janie Junebug. I was happy to see that you left a follow-up comment for Margaret and Kathleen today. Thank you, dear friend!

    Carol's David seems like the best thing since Hamburger Helper and it was very nice of him to assist you. I hope you enjoy reclining and napping in your new hammock.

    Hugs and smooches, Janie!

    1. Carol's David is so much better than Hamburger Helper. I hate that stuff. I used to make it when I didn't really know how to cook.

  6. A handyman who is handy enough to know to flee the cold and then, in-turn, flee the choking humidity? That is handy. Smart man. It's too bad I don't live near enough to either place because I need a good handyman (specifically an electrician, but no one needed that extra bit of information or this exposition on that information).
    It has to be a good feeling to see something you edited make its way into the public sphere. Very cool. See you in May.

    1. I have the greatest electrician in the world, Mr. King. Mr. King's daughter, Beth, is my realtor. Mr. King is a retired master electrician, so he handles all my electrical needs and some other stuff, too. Shall I box up Mr. King and send him to you?

  7. Is he willing to fly to Adelaide and build me a treehouse?

    1. If you pay for the plane ticket and accommodations, he might be willing. He'd be even more willing if you paid for me to go on a vacation. Then I'd beg Carol's David to work for you.

    2. I'll consult my accountant and get back to you :)

  9. So nice to have a hammock!! But you are not a lady of leisure at the moment. Sounds like you are slaving away editing. Hope you are well and see you pretty soon. May isn't too far away. :)

    1. Thank you. I wish it were strong enough to hold the Wooters man and me, but it would only be strong enough if we weighed about thirty pounds each. We don't. We weigh a little bit more. Okay, we weigh a lot more.

    1. What I really want is to sleep in it when the weather is cool, but I'm too afraid of palmetto bugs and lizards jumping on me.

    1. I used to do that a lot. I mean write any(something) instead of way. I've gotten out of the habit. I thought it worked well with David because I know so many of them.

  14. Janie, now I can picture you reading in your hammock, enjoying the summer sunshine. Congrats on your latest edit and promotion. We do miss you!

    1. Thank you, Linda Kay. I won't spend much time in the hammock because I still have quite a bit of work to do, but I will never complain about people hiring me to edit or write for them. Thanks be to God.

  15. I love hammocks. I used to read in one all the time as a child.

    Thank you again for the share of my cover reveal.

    1. You're welcome. When I was young we had a yellow hammock that my dad set up in the backyard. It was wonderful.

  16. I wish I had known how much my now 15 year old daughter would want a hammock...I'd have planted the trees when we moved in 14 years ago. (Our deck doesn't have rails...it is barely off the ground. we are not daredevils)

  17. Hammocks look good but I have never been able to use one I end up falling out maybe I am too big for one who knows but me and a hammock doesn't work

    1. I don't think Willy Dunne Wooters will be comfortable in this hammock.

  18. Hello Ms.Janie Junebug! Good to see you this morning at my post.
    I LOVE hammocks and can't wait for the temperature to rise a bit and get it set up.
    Yours looks comfy and ready!
    Does Carol's David travel to Nova Scotia in the winter? We could use his services here with all the snow we get!

    1. I think Carol's David has enough snow in Milwaukee. I doubt if he'd visit Nova Scotia.

  19. I love a good hammock! I've never had one at my own living space, but I got to enjoy one up at Lake Tahoe one time. One of the best naps I've ever had!

  20. I'm glad you pay Carol's David money versus sexual favors, because WDW and Carol might not like that.

    1. WDW would be surprised and then say, Oh, well, if that's what it took.

      Carol would smack me.

      However, I know Carol's David prefers money, so we'll have no panky hanky.
