  • Me too! I fix my first cup o' joe, put Cajun out, feed her, then fire up Cowbird, and savor the new stories that magically appeared on the overnight Cowbird Express. I inhale them with the fresh spring morning air, ease them down with my coffee, sitting in my easy chair with my laptop.

    It's like when I was in Boot Camp in the Navy, and all those letters would arrive for me at Mail Call. I felt like the luckiest guy alive to have all that booty to read.

    I am the luckiest guy alive, once again. This is a fine way to start a day.

    Good morning, Cowbirders! Ya'all have a wonderful day, filled with stories and life and pleasant surprises and challenges to engage and overcome. I'll be here tonight and in the morning to read all about it.
