Ok, it's so hot & humid that my body lotion has liquified. I'm not kidding. I suppose that's fine because when I put it on, my skin is so moist that nothing sinks in anyway. I'm a human pizza pie with all this grease! Eew! The heat is the talk of the town, except at dusk when we start whining about the bugs. Ah yes, life in the tropics.

So, I've been trying to come up with an idea for my next book. I actually think I'm going to write about Mr. X and the Shiggidy Shack and see where that takes me. If any of you readers has a story to tell about Mr. X, his water-based business, or his restaurant send it on!

Before I made that decision, I thought I'd try to drum up any subject that made people wonder - why is that? This led me to to a couple of websites that made me laugh. See if you've ever thought hmmmmm.
