Weekly Wrap Up (Aug. 11 - Aug. 17)
So I really have nothing to talk about this week in the Weekly Update preamble, so I thought I would throw out a joke and some useless trivia

Why did the chicken cross the playground?

Did you know that giraffes only need 5 to 30 minutes of sleep in a 24 hour period They often achieve that in quick naps that may last only a minute or two at a time!

Weekly Wrap Up (Jul. 28 - Aug. 3)
So no surprise this week. Hopefully, you all have been keeping up to date with Shark Week  

I have a lot of respect for all the parents out there, I just got back from 5 days of camping in the Rockies with my 3 nephews under the age of 12 with no power or internet or even cell phone coverage  Well now that I'm sure that some of you are digesting that horror of that last statement, shall we see what has happened while I was out playing with bears, mountain lions, and cougars (and 3 kids)...

Weekly Wrap Up (Jul. 14 - Jul. 20)
I have an announcement to make, I'm out of here!!

Well now that the cheering and clapping has died down, I'll just say it is a temporary reprieve from Steve . I'm on 2 weeks summer holidays and may or may not be around too much. 

So shall we look back on the week that we have had here at the GA Blog?

Weekly Wrap Up (Jul. 7 - Jul. -13)
So I was down at the Stampede tonight to about 12:30 am  and I met this nice couple from Australia. I asked if they knew @Graeme, but surprisingly they did not   They decided to come over here for their winter and our summer  When I asked them where they were from, they said Wagga Wagga, NSW . I thought to myself, self, why does Australia have such funny names? Then I thought it my be Aboriginal names, and who am it to judge? Here in the Great White North, we have Moosejaw, and here's a tongue twister, Saskatoon Saskatchewan  so do you have any strange named towns/cities in your neck of the woods?

And onto the wrap up, after my strange musings...

Weekly Wrap Up (Jun. 31 - Jul. 6)
There is a lot to be said about being regular. Especially when you reach the age of 50, being regular is just more comfortable way of life 

So what the heck am i talking about ? Well this week here at the GA Blog, we had a regular week  M-W-F posting of the ole standbys. I am not saying that a variety of new items and mixing things up is a bad thing, far from it. Change is the necessity of life. So it is always nice to be regular again...

Weekly Wrap Up (Jun. 23 - Jun. 29)
I've had enough rain in the past week to float an ark, or at least consider to build one So If did build my ark, who should I bring two of? Who would you bring on it if you could choose anyone? After all this is an open invitation to all of you, plus one, to come on the GA cruise of a lifetime

Enough of this silliness Steve, get onto the wrap up 😠

Weekly Wrap Up (Jun. 2 - Jun. 8)
We are now a week into the month of June, and a lot of places around the world celebrate Pride in June. How about your neck of the woods? My city actually does Pride the first weekend of September, but I don't know why . I've heard some chatter around the site about good, and unfortunately some bad, already happening. Tell us all about the good!

Did it seem like a short week in the blogs? That's because there were no anthologies posted this week due to Renee ending up hospitalized Thursday morning to have her appendix out. She assures me that barring any complications anthologies will resume this coming week.

Ask an Author 2.0 #20
G’day!

Anyone who’s read my CJ series knows I have a thing for Australia. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not due to the tiny bathing suits I saw blokes wear at Bondi Beach. Okay, fine, those may have influenced me a tad.

When I realized I had questions for a couple of our Aussie authors, I asked two reliable blog followers for additional ones. The result is the first ever Ask an AUSTRALIAN Author feature.

Moments
So...I want you all to take a few seconds, and think about your life in it’s entirety.

Your entire life, as a whole. Childhood, adolescence, adulthood. How do you envision it in your mind? Do you think about that day you picked up some extra eggs and milk from the grocery store? ...

Wow. It's been a while since I've done one of these, but Steve is away for the weekend and asked if I could take care of it. Of course! Between not feeling the greatest the last couple of days and not having done it in a while, let's hope I remember how! So, let's take a look at what we had this week...
