A Reminder for Your Weekend Enjoyment! (Contest)
Friday, March 22nd, 2024

UPDATE: The winner is…Jennifer Beyer!

Thank you to EVERYONE who already picked up their copy of What Happens in Bozeman! I appreciate your support and hope you had a great time reading it! Here are some snippets of reviews from a couple of readers who loved this visit to Dead Horse, Montana. (Thank you, Elinda and Pam!)

What follows is a series of events that will have you laughing out loud. ~ Elinda M
Loved the town of Dead Horse. Its residents and Sara and her classmates were adorable! ~ Pam B

Yeah, I know…kids in a romance? Shouldn’t that be self-exclusionary? Hey, it did not get in the way of sexiness in the story. Promise.

What you may not know is that a lot of what inspired the character of Sara and her classmates’ antics comes from the three girls who share my home. The oldest cringes when I tell the story of her trying to have a conversation with a caterpillar with her ear held as close to its head as possible. She’d seen The Bee Movie and couldn’t understand why the caterpillar was ignoring her. Of course, her grandma told her it was because their mouths are so small that the sounds they make can’t be heard by ordinary humans. So, the kittens and the princess bed thing had its true origins… You’ll have to read the story to understand what I’m talking about.

So, if you haven’t read the story yet and are looking for something fun to read this weekend, I think my book will fit the bill nicely!

    My husband was watching my 8th old granddaughter while I was at an appt. When I went to pick him up I told her if she needed anything just yell. Her mom was home but laying down with her. She said, Mimi how will you hear me across the river if I yell? I said I’ll hear you I have good hearing. She said, pappy doesn’t he won’t hear me. lol

    I remember that my sister would have to tell her oldest when he was little that she gave him chicken when it was turkey, because he refused to eat turkey. It was the oddest thing… chicken was okay in his eyes but not turkey… so every Thanksgiving he was getting “chicken”.

    A child I know had an epiphany one Christmas. He decided that I had to be “Merry Christmas”.

    My mother loves to tell the story about having frogs stuck in her window wells. She was trying to figure out how to get them out when my son announced “Coop da trogs! Coop da trogs!”. We still quote it to this day.

    When my cousin Ronda was about 5, my Aunts and I were pulling the garden and canning the vegetables. Grandma was helping. We could not get grandma to take a break because she was so excited the jars were sealing. She had always thought she could not can because her jars would not vacuum seal. After we told grandma again to take a break, Ronda pops up with ‘If great grandma does not want to take a break, I’ll take it for her’ and she proceeded to sit down for 5 minutes. Then she told grandma ‘ok your break is over’ and got up to run and play.

    My husband told our grandson that he could have his truck when he got older. My five year old grandson said no thanks he would rather have a Lamborghini.

    A local family has a little girl who just started kindergarten. She was born after many sad previous infant deaths. To say she is spoiled in a slight understatement. This girl has done more in her short life than I have done. Anyway, apparently, the HOME stores have children workshops where they learn to use tools safely and build projects. She had been attending for a few years. When asked if she wanted to attend this summer, she told her mom. I don’t need to. I already know how to use all the tools!

    For some reason, when the oldest was little, when we asked “What’s happening?” they would answer, “Nothing but much” and for some reason, we all found this hilarious and got into the habit of using that too. They’re in their twenties now, and it still makes us all giggle like fools, maybe in part because it really doesn’t make much sense at all 😉

    A kid came up as a giant garage sale, in the book & music section, and asked what these things were.

    My son took over and explained what different types of records, 8 tracks, cassette tapes, and VHS tapes were.

    My son looked at me later, and asked what he learned and where. My son was between 12 & 15 at a Boy Scout sale. He is only 24 now. So the kids wasn’t much younger. I guess I can’t complain about what you teach me now Mom.

    My grandson (who was 8 at the time) said so grandpa is Dad’s dad, but Lori is my dad’s mom. I said yes. But grandpa is Kyle’s dad and his mom. I said yes. My grandson then says so Dad and Kyle are brothers from another mother. I said yes Joseph they are and couldn’t stop laughing. That was 2 summers ago and it’s still my favorite story to tell.
