Friday Funnies: Vacations!

Hello My Happy People,

I am scrambling today, but then when am I not, right? We are getting ready to head out next week for our first vacation since 2019. There is so much to get done in the next few days and I completely lost track of time. I was thinking we had one more week than we do. So now I am feeling pressured to get everything done in a lot fewer days than I thought I had.

I may just take a vacation from the podcast for two weeks and pick it back up before Halloween. I have a friend here in Germany who just won a horror writing contest and she has agreed to come on the podcast and read her winning entry. I can't wait for that! She is a writer but also a singer/songwriter for a Rockabilly band and plays the upright bass. She is so cool. I will post dates for that podcast as soon as we set up the interview.

I think i may just stop the writing prompt challenge and just give the two entrants each $25 and call it good. I am not getting any more submissions and it's been a few months. It was an idea to interact more with my audience but not all ideas pan out. My TikTok page is going well so we can always just turn the focus to that.

But that is enough for updates, lets get on with the jokes ... I need to get ready for date night with the hubbie!

Have a great weekend, happy people!
