Greetings to you from the Moose Pass Library, where I've been spending the last two hours trying to whether through online applying for Social Security, as I turn 62 next month. Time to get that rocket booster for my skates. They say they've made the application process easier, I tend to disbelieve this. I believe the President thinks this money is coming from his own wallet and not what we have paid into it. Well, in my case it may be coming from his wallet, as my 10 years of eligibility involved 10-years of military service, flipping burgers for McDonalds, carrying 100 lb bags of beans about a store, while my Foster Brother Andy was butchering up cattle out back.
Just a brief note to say hello on this snowy day. Yes, we are still receiving snow, rain and the occasional nice sunny day. I'd like to begin digging into the ground, but its still frozen up.
A reminder that John Leroy Casselman will be turning the ripe old age of 39 on this coming Friday, 4/25/15. This would also be the birthday of his grandfather, Frank Leroy Casselman, if he was still alive. So drop him a text,a call, a card, a present or a pizza or maybe a sloppy kiss on his forehead.
I wish to apologize for my lack of contact of late and inform you this is due to our lack if Internet at home. I am at the Seward Library at the moment and though I should take a moment to pass a greeting on to you. It may be a week or a month before you hear from me again, as we are not too sure as to when we'll have the internet back on. Oddly enough I have really not missed all the movies I used to watch, as it ate up a lot of my day and I didn't get as much writing done as I should have.
As to my books, my publisher, Alaska Dreams, needed to take some time off and has now returned. We are back to working on the Vietnam novel Apache Snow. Elizabeth, our oldest daughter has designed the cover and it should be out soon enough. Somehow the disc with the book on it was flawed and a new disc is on its way.
In the mean time I have decided to write secular western novels. I have finished the first in a series of a planned 6 books involving the Arizona Rangers in the years of 1862 through 1878. I have already begun Book # 2. I do so apologize but my ride is here.
Please take care,
God Bless. BILL
