Book Almost Cooked

      10 Comments on Book Almost Cooked

Almost there on the book.  I’ve got to finish the last full chapter, then I’ll be writing a wrap-up chapter — the title of which will be something like “It’s perfectly good to be good instead of perfect.”

So I may just make that self-imposed deadline, which comes around on Saturday … along with my 57th birthday.

Back to it …

    Happy birthday! Mine was last week and I turned 56, so you are older, neener, neener.

    I don’t know about you, but I feel much younger than I did 5 years ago–thanks, in part to your movie and blog. Good nutrition does that to a person ;o)

    Hope you get to celebrate with the book off your plate.

      Heck, I feel younger than I did 20 years ago.

      My birthday is the one day of the year I stuff myself with pizza and wash it down with good beer. That helps me remember what the bad old days felt like.

    Happy 57th, “kid.” Ahhh, youth. I sort of remember it.

    I’m really looking forward to your book, even though it’s aimed at a much younger readership. I long ago learned that if there’s something I really want to understand and even the Dummies book on the subject leaves me scratching my head, the next stop is the children’s library. Maybe after I read your book I’ll be better at explaining the rationale behind low-carb living to friends who think I’m committing suicide by bacon and butter.

    Does this mean you’ll soon return to posting twice a week?

      Back to regular posting is the plan, although I’ll probably wait until after Thanksgiving. Jimmy and Christine Moore will be staying with us that week while taking a break from their worldwide, whirlwind book tour. With the temperature in the 60s instead of the high 90s (as it was in July), Jimmy will probably be lobbying for non-stop disc golf.

          Two monsters, me and Jimmy Moore. The other monster (and the monster’s wife) will be here all Thanksgiving week, so weather permitting, we’ll be indulging our addiction big-time.

    Happy birthday on the 14th! I will forever after remember your birthday as tomorrow would have been my mother’s 95th birthday- she passed away on the ten year anniversary of 9/11. Talk about remembering dates!

    I’m also looking forward to your book, even though there are no little kids around to share it with.

    I envy you that pizza and beer tomorrow! If I did that I would be sick for three or four days- just can’t tolerate the wheat. But you have a slice or two for the rest of us!

      Oh, I feel it the next day. That’s why it’s become a once-per-year indulgence for me. I don’t have any plans for Sunday beyond watching football all day, so if I’m feeling lethargic, I can deal with it.
