Great Tuesday...so much news!

Outstanding "Seatbelt Suspense" novelist Brandilyn Collins is writing a new series entitled Kanner Lake.

The first book in the series is going to be Violet Dawn. (We will review the book in September.) To showcase this series Brandilyn has created Scenes and Beans. It is a real blog for the fictional characters who frequent the fictitious Java Joint coffeehouse in the town of Kanner Lake.

Do I have you sufficiently confused?

Well Brandilyn posted a list of the characters and conducted auditions from her BG's (Bloggees)who frequent her website...I won a spot! I will be blogging as one of the three people playing the part of Sarah Wray, owner of Simple Pleasures, a tourist gift shop in the town.

Congratulations to all the crew who got parts. And as soon as the list of people and their blogs are available, I'll post them. I know several people like Dineen Miller, Gina Holmes and Dave Meigs but I'll wait till I have the whole list! I"m going to create a separate sidebar box for the project.

And....my good friend Bernita Harris did an awesome interview over at Flash Flood yesterday...go check it out. Bernita looks so cute sitting in her garden!

And last, but not least....a joke!

George went on a vacation to the Middle East with his family, including his mother-in-law.

During their vacation in Jerusalem, George's mother-in-law died.

With the death certificate in his hand, George went to the American Consulate Office to make arrangements to send the body back to the United States for a proper burial.

The Consul told George that to send the body back to the United States for burial was very, very expensive. It could cost him as much as $5,000.00.

The Consul told him, in most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body there in Jerusalem. This would only cost him $150.00.

George though for some time and answered, "I don't care how much it will cost to send the body back, that's what I want to do."

The Consul said, "You must have loved your mother-in-law very much considering the difference in price".

"No, it's not that," said George. "You see, I know of a case many, many years ago of a man that was buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day he arose from the dead! I just can't take that chance!"
