Advent Calendar – Day 10

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Day 10 – Fiction Favorites

There are more than a few of us in the same circle as John W. Howell, and I could give credit to more than one for directing me towards this here wonderful site.  However, in the name of fairness and to avoid any unnecessary jealousy, I shall refrain from naming names 😉 .  Suffice it to say that it was a good day when I went from just exchanging banters with John on other people’s blogs to outright bantering on our own blogs 😉

The man is a published author (I’m waiting for my copy to arrive of “Circumstances of Childhood”).  When it comes to John’s blog, we are treated to various themes, such as:  Monday’s “Top 10 Things Not to do…” – a hilarious list of things not to do with a sneaky insertion of history; Thursday’s “A Little Personal” could be a tour of his Port Aransas, TX ‘hood or a description of any day-to-day life told through the eyes of his four-legged babies, Bailey, Lucy and Twiggy – each one adorable.  On Wednesdays John gives us a little more of an on-going story, leaving us to wonder what’s coming next (he, himself is making it up as he goes along so…)

I’ll leave the rest of the days of the week for you to explore!  Go ahead, you won’t be disappointed!
