OUR LIFE OFF THE GRID did not make the Stephen Leacock shortlist. And, yes, we are a smidge disappointed. But not too much. Fame was only briefly within our grasp. I was counting groupies before they hatched. I think Sal was, too. Boo hoo.
But no consoling needed. Thank you in advance for such thoughts (I know you guys). We are still happy with what we achieved. Ecstatic. Getting that far was a huge surprise. We are very pleased with that. Still surprised too, actually. We might even award ourselves extra chocolate (for Sal) and scotch for me anyway. I think she is funny.
I mention this to you only because we told you we were in the running. Seems only fair to report the outcome.
Writing won’t stop. You know that. This was not even a bump in the road. It was merely a beautiful distraction, like a wild rose bush blooming in the desert as we drive by at 100 miles an hour. A blink, a delightful one, but still a blink by any other name.
Is assisted suicide legal yet?
