If April Showers bring May flowers, I ought to be drowning in them

At least we have forsynthias but the wayward weather has frozen the other flowers.

I wish I were a scholar; I have always wanted to read my income tax in the original Greek.

As you might imagine, doing taxes each year is quite the process around here.  Between Dan and I, there are 4 businesses to report on: and I end up doing it all on paper so I can put it online.  I am always very glad when it’s completed.   It reminds me of some quotes about taxes: hope you enjoy them too!

“ The IRS suggests filing early to reduce the chances that someone will steal your identity and file before you. Honestly, if somebody wants my identity so badly that they’ll file my tax return for me, go crazy. You can mow my lawn while you’re at it too. (Jimmy Kimmel)

Worried about an IRS audit? Avoid what’s called a red flag. That’s something the IRS always looks for. For example, say you have some money left in your bank account after paying taxes, that’s a red flag. (Jay Leno)

“One difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.” –Anonymous

“What is the difference between a taxidermist and a tax collector? The taxidermist takes only your skin.”–Mark Twain

“The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has.” –Will Rogers

OK, now seriously, hope you have yours done. Once mine were done, I could start figuring out what our next contest was going to be and when.  I’ve decided on a giveaway; people seem to like those.  The giveaway will run from April 10 until April 30; grand prize is a Kindle 7 with cover; there are 12 autographed by the author paperbacks as first prizes and 10 consolation prizes-so 23 prizes in all.  Enter as soon as it opens or hallway through or just before it ends but remember to enter!  Can’t win if you don’t. I’ll get the hyuperlink inserted this week.

Our first free book of the month is Kai Dante’s Stratagem, which will be on special April 3 thru the 7th only.  It’s going into hardcover soon, so thought to celebrate by making the Amazon download free for a week would be a way to celebrate.  To get your copy, just go to Amazon and type in the title or go to the link below.

Nine puppies in all!

We were pleasantly surprised when our Pomeranian mother Cocoa had her first litter of 7 pups-that is unheard of for poms.  They normally have two.  Bambi, our other mother pom, had two.  I’ve been having to help Cocoa along a little with some puppy formula.  Just way too many little mouths to feed.  They’re doing fine, however.
