Life Sucks

Okay - for those coming in late, my mother in law passed away, and I was going to the funeral while also looking for a new job.

That was the plan - and the plan was to do an update two weeks ago.  I got back from the funeral on the Tuesday - and on the Wednesday, I had a call to say my younger brother had died suddenly of a heart attack.

So - life sucks, and we're late again.

Having said which, you are cordially invited to the wedding of Charlotte Gordon di Cambrello and Pietre van der Byl, as We are Gathered Here...

We follow three women on A Grand Day Out...

A week late, more Euorthoughts in EuroHELP 2018...

And finally, a question of Contrasts.

I am aiming to update again week beginning 4th June, God Willing, but until then I remain,

Hello, is it me you're looking for?

Okay - two months.  Two freaking months, and I am so sorry it has been that long.  You deserve an explanation - especially if you do not follow me on Twitter or DeviantArt.

After the last post, I was told I was one of a number of people at my place of employment been considered for redundancy, and I had that process to go through.  That was one thing - then, just as I got that completed, my mother in law fell ill, and after a short illness passed away.  While that was going on, they made their decision - and this week I was put on three months notice.

So all that meant I was - distracted, hence the lack of updates here.  I'll try and do better.

But I also have an appeal - any funds raised from my eBook sales at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/KPPresents  for the next few months will go to McMillan Nurses.  I have new books there, including an Objects of Beauty collection - please visit and consider giving.

And talking of Objects of Beauty - are you ready for a Mature Selection?

We also have Jay Edwards and Mrs McPhee spending a Japanese Day

And some Japanese Lessons.

Amanda Lu wraps up Sibling Bonding

And finally, the Crime of the Century in the last part of Two Weddings and a Robbery.

I have a funeral this week, but I hope, God willing, to be back in two weeks.  Until then, I remain,

42 Days Later...

Okay - that should not have happened.  But then, in my real world life, I was not expecting to be preparing for the possibility of redundancy, and the depression that caused.  No excuses, only apologies - and a bumper update instead.

Starting with the next part of Two Weddings and a Robbery - as the Robbery part goes into overdrive...

The WABAC Machine went to the Eighties for a tale of a girl and three friends who end up Helping Daddy...

A tale from Madddog revealing some Family Secrets...

A mother and daughter remember their Shared Experience...

The next edition of After School Specials...

A bad case of Cougar Taming...

Mister Tall and Mister Small are involved in Another Fine Mess...

Now, after far too long away, welcome back Heidi Strong and her friends in the first part of Heidi's Independence Day...

And welcome back as well Cassie and Jenny Craig, as the family head Down Under...

Finally, some new Mother and Daughter moments...

We will be back, as always God Willing, in two weeks - honestly.  But for now, I remain,

Welcome to 2018

Okay - first things first.  2017 was not a good year for me, and I let things slip.  I'm going to try to keep to a fortnightly schedule for now, but thank you for sticking with me.

Couple of things to clear up first - like the rest of the Silent Night stories for 2017, and also a tale from Spandexman when Jessica Claus Gets Kidnapped.

And for the Pussycat Gang, the time for the heist of the century is near in Two Weddings and a Robbery.

What else - how about some more tales of John Jacobs in New Year Cat.

Or a glimpse into Objects of Beauty with a Saturday Night Takeaway?

No - well, how about the latest program from the DiD Channel on the subject of Pure Hostages?

Or a man talking about his hobby?

We also have the next part of The Wrong Choices.

We'll be Back, as always God Willing, in two weeks, but until then I remain,

Christmas is coming

and with Christmas comes unexpected guests - such as Mister Tall and Mister Small as they share some Christmas Lessons.

Or three ladies in grey as they help some women get Dolled Up.

It may be December, but for the Pussycat Gang and Madame X it is July 2016 - and time for Two Weddings and a Robbery.

Two women come to Common Destinations

And finally, some short Silent Night tales.

I did promise Objects of Beauty - they, and the Cat, will God Willing be here next week, but until then, I remain,

A month is too long

and I am truly sorry, but real life in November was a bitch.  No excuses - I am just so glad it is the holiday season.

I also need to make an announcement - due to a change in policy by e-book carriers, the only place you can get new collections by me and others under the KP Presents banner will be my Lulu store here.  Mind you, I also get more if you buy them here...

Anyway - onwards, and we complete Fresh Starts with the CS awards show, and some life changing decisions...

Ever wonder how Jay Edwards and Mrs McPhee really got started?  If you did, read some Taped Tales.

One man discusses what is In My Room

We meet the Go Go Gone Intruder

And finally, Marcos offers part 2 of The Wrong Choices.

I am hoping to be back next weekend, God willing, with the Gentlemen Robbers, the China Dolls, and Objects of Beauty, but until then, I remain,

Down Under

First, a word from our sponsors...

And why?  Because preparations are underway for the Complete Style Awards in the latest part of Fresh Starts.

We also have a report of weekend events from A Wet Saturday...

The Cat Reviews some old photos...

Two women have a Revelation...

And finally, a late Halloween tale with the Changelings.

Oh - and allow me to share some photos that have inspired me at my Pinterest account  - https://za.pinterest.com/kevpickering/

I'll be back, as always God willing, in a week or two, but until then, I remain,
