Rick Jackson update

And so life goes on. I have been very busy this spring and have not had the time to write that I thought I would. Since I am averaging a request a day of when the next story will be out I am doing an update of my schedule.

I am close to finishing Summer Vacation 1959. A week at the most should do it. Then it has to be edited. That will take up to two weeks. So we are looking at the last week of March or first week of April at the soonest. The story is around thirty thousand words so it is more of a novella than a chapter, and not quite a novel.

As for Tenth grade, I have plotted out the story, now to write it. I really hope to start posting before the end of the year. I will not post until I have at least ten chapters ahead. I hate to miss postings once it starts.

To give a hint or two on vacation, I still carry the brief case I bought at Harrods in Buenos Ares in the 1980's. The pothole story is absolutely true and was related to me by the Managing Director of the Firestone Rubber Plantation in Liberia, we were sitting on the veranda of the guest house at the time. King Neptune did give me some god awful concoction to drink. I did not learn to Tango in an Argentina whorehouse (my story and I am sticking to it.) I have stayed at the Plaza on the Strand in London.

Other than that it is all true. Give or take a lie or two.
