Status Update

I've had several people wondering just what the heck is going on in my personal life (vis a vis moving et. al.). Well, let me try to bring it current but it's a mess.

Dad's got six acres, I have two. They're adjacent and, for logistics sake, it was decided that we'd bring Dad's functional before I started on mine. So, we have electricity to the front six and a road. Drilled a well (five-hundred feet and sulfur water-dammit). Finally, installed a septic system. Right now I'm living out of a travel trailer sitting on the front six getting ready to go to work on mine. Should have electricity run back to the back within a week or two and then I'll be out of money. Running water to the back from the well and putting in septic will run around four grand and that has to be done before I can move the trailer back...and that's all before I can start building a house.

In between, I have to write about twenty books and coordinate the May book drive. If you want to see me do many public appearances and travelling this year, I humbly suggest you feed the cat.

Hopefully, that catches everyone up.

Dang it! I tried to feed the cat and got a"Fatal Failure". :-(
Any suggestions on how I can do this? Since it looks like Ron will be starting a new job on the first of the month, I would like to help some with the costs of the book drive.

The "feed the cat" button was supposed to take you to paypal. I honestly don't know how paypal works (and the old cat is dead). I know that I get paid by paypal from some publishers and it seems that all they need is my email address (mkeaton at archangelpress dot net) and I had some help setting things so that paypal then puts the money automatically into my bank account.
