My Favorite Author

"It was a dark and stormy night", this was the TYPICAL beginning of ever story he ever wrote. He was known as the World Famous Author and was always AGONIZING over the plots and subject matter of his stories. His stories were STIMULATING and ZANY, and mostly rejected by his publishers, but I still love him and he is my Hero.

I don't recall any dark stories that he ever wrote, nothing about MURDER and Mayhem or anything not really G rated, he did OFFER stories of action and adventure, DRAMATIC tales of his tangling with The Red Baron as the World War I Flying Ace, actually flying through rain, SLEET, and snow to eventually save the day.

My World Famous Author Calendar that sits on my desk
Snoopy is bound to be listed as one of your favorite authors...Right?

Sitting at my desk I look at my World Famous Author calendar that my daughter got me for Christmas, last year, a few years, several years...OK she got this for me a Long time ago.

My mornings begin with a SIP of coffee, a walk out to my little office in the bunkhouse, surrounded by birds, bees, unicorns, and FLOWERS along the way...OK I go out and feed the horse and release the chickens for the day, then I adjust the date on my Snoopy calendar and check my email and blog.

Just like my blog there is nothing DISTINCT about this post other than my love for Snoopy, as I said before he is my hero, and I just wanted for you to smile today...OK I do love my wife more, just don't tell Snoopy, because the DISCOVERY of this just may cause him to reject my next story.

  3. What a great calendar and what a wonderful story. Maybe some day I will try to write a story that includes words provided by another blogger. Have no idea how that would come out.

    1. Hi EC, I read both yours and Lee's stories, as always you both did really good. Our Daughter usually hits a home run when she gets gifts for us, I have used this one for quite a few years.

  5. I love dark and stormy nights, even in books I can feel the electrified air as thunderheads gather and lightning flashes. I love Snoopy too, but my hero is Hobbes, the tiger beloved by Calvin.
    I'll be working on my story tomorrow and posting on Friday as always, unless I can't think of anything. My mind is MIA at the moment.

    1. Hey River, Maybe you could feature Hobbes in a story, I have a feeling between Calvin and Hobbes, and Lola that your imagination could run a little wild ;-)

  7. That is a cool calendar. I think even Lucy might approve, as long as she wasn't kissed by dog lips, and it didn't encroach on the space for her Psychiatric Help booth.

    1. Very true Val, and Lucy is a tough cookie to get over to Snoopy's side too.

  8. Jimmy, that's very well written, I'm soon going out in the cold with a hot cup of coffee to get some fresh air.

    I'll check my new blog later, in case you happen to stop by my friend.

  9. I have Snoopy decals (with him sitting at a typewriter) on my car's back windows. They help me find my car in a parking lot. I glue a fresh Snoopy trinket on my husband's grave marker every spring because he was a huge fan. So I get how someone can call him their favorite author. LOL Another great word challenge polished off like the pro you are, Jimmy.

    1. Jean, I knew that you would appreciate a post about Snoopy, I had a feeling that he was your favorite author also.

      Thank you Jean, I appreciate you so much.

  10. Hmmm! I feel slightly jealous that you have a Snoopy calendar and I, one who absolutely loves him, have none. You're a dab hand at writing with chosen words, Jimmy, well done.

    1. They can be a lot of fun Rick, I kicked it around for a while before I tried the first one, they do help me think and adjust my thought process when I start getting stuck on what to write.

    1. Sometimes when you get up real early and haven't quite woken up yet, those horses can favor a Unicorn ha ha.

      I bet you would do a good job when you decide to jump in also.
