Lethbridge Dragon boat Festival

Saturday, July 12th, 2008

We just returned from a short trip to Lethbridge where a dragon boat festival was held. The Edmonton River Rats did quite well, finishing in the top ten of the ‘A’ division. The festival was well run and the weather was great. I did some writing on the trip, deciding to do a story on dragon boats. I’m not sure how long its going to be or even how it will turn out but I’m using the character Sheldon from another story I wrote, At the Edge of Darkness.

After spending an extra day in Lethbridge (I did some wine sales there) we drove up slowly to Calgary to visit our son and his family. David and Natalie are doing fine but my wife Laurie was excited about holding Benjamin, our seven month old grandson. Benjamin is doing great, growing strong and interacting with the colourful toys around him.

I have another story accepted by Midnight Showcase, a paranormal tale. I hope to have a couple of other short stories accepted by them to make up a full book.

It’s time to go back to writing: I have too many stories going on at once and better start finishing some of them off.

Cheers
