Greetings friends, (I’m pretty sure that if you stop by to read my thoughts you have to be my friend!)
Today is a bittersweet celebration day.
Celebrating that Timeless is live – Andy’s story is finally available for you to catch up on what he’s been thinking all this time. The Rock and Roll Series spans over about forty years and Andy’s kept a lot of things bottled up. Letting go is freeing. I hope you’ll check out the ENCORE (I love that my friend Francine called it that.)

Also – Amazon bundled them, so if you haven’t read the first three – you can purchase them all:
or maybe you loved the 1st three so much and are excited about the ENCORE that you want to gift them all.
If you have read the first books, I hope you fall in love with Andy all over again.
I love and appreciate all of you who have followed OUR journey.
Release day always makes me think of my mom. Alis would already be done reading this book that just released today – she DEVOURED words. I think she is part of each story in some way. I always slip “something Alis” in. This time, she’s a special part of the end of the book, in my “After Thoughts” and I have to thank my friend Judy for the idea of adding what you will find there.
But today I’m thinking of Alis even more. Today is not only release day – it’s my birthday and I miss her most on holidays – and YES! MY BIRTHDAY IS A HOLIDAY! 🙂
My earliest memories of birthdays included “MY SPECIAL CELEBRATION” which, until I turned 16 or so was always what she thought was my favorite – because I was a girl – and girls liked pink… so my cake was ALWAYS cherry chip, with pink frosting and cherry vanilla ice cream. As I got older I told her that it really wasn’t my favorite – she acted shocked! I told her that I loved her carrot cake and that I was a plain ol’vanilla ice cream girl. After that she baked her recipe – 14 Carat Cake – I have it and one day I will tackle the work involved. She made it for Gene and my wedding cake and each time I look at the recipe I think of all the love it took for her to bake that cake for me each time she did. I settle for Publix’s carrot cake (almost as good, but missing the love) now.
One of my other birthday memories was her telling me, or calling me later in my life to tell me (and I can almost relay it word-for-word):
“Do you know what I was doing (however many) years ago today at 3:42 in the morning? I was crying, because you were a girl and I knew your dad wanted a boy.”
And then she would tell me how wrong she was, that my dad loved me and bragged on me being the most beautiful baby in the nursery…
As you get older – this is my 58th celebration of life – you remember things more fondly. They become TIMELESS.

I <3 you, B
