Dear Friends, at the suggestion of Dan Norsworthy and Jenny Magee, I’ve decided not to shut down MartyMagee.com, but to take an extended break–which I’ve already done.
First, I’d like to tell you a few things that have been going on. The house at left was our home in Springfield Oregon nearly 20 years ago. This was it a few weeks ago. It brought back pleasant memories as we drove by.
Speaking of houses, if you check out www.3051sierra.com you’ll see the house we’re trying to sell. It’s not like us to have every sock picked up and every dish washed. So, you can see the extra time it takes this undomestic blogger.
MILL CITY BACK YARD
If we sell our Fresno house, we plan to move to Mill City. Go to www.realtor.com and type in 1205 Third Av, Mill City OR to see our possible new place.
Here’s one reason we want to move back to Oregon:
LITA AND SADIE--CRAYOLA SPECIALISTS
Here’s a reason we’ve been holding off on the move:
MR WILSON OR PEEPING TORRANCE?
Please look for my second book. MUPPIM, HUPPIM AND ARD should be out sometime in 2010. I’m sure it will be easier to write than figuring out how to place pictures on this mind-of-its-own blog.
Meanwhile, there are a few copies of EBENEZER left.
Blessings to you all!

Denise and I had a great evening over calamari and nonstop chatter.
Her recent trip to Oregon, our coming up trip to Antelope Valley Writers’ Conference
Her book, my book.
Her husband the collector, my husband who sprayed tonic water all over the kitchen–and we wondered why we stuck to the floor.
Her children and grandchildren, my children and grandchildren.
Her God and my God. The same Person.
She finds something good almost everywhere she goes. Then she writes about it.
While you’re waiting for Denise’s book to come out, check out mine, Ebenezer and Ninety-Eight Friends, Musings on Life, Scripture and the Hymns. Barnes and Noble will be glad to order it for you. Amazon or I will send it right to your door. Probably B&N will too.
Before you finish Ebenezer, you Fresnans, pick up a copy of Salt Fresno and read Denise’s article, “Easter’s At My House.” Next issue, Denise will interview our new mayor, Ashley Swearingen.
