How's that for a combination. It's all the fault of my erstwhile colleagues in the BlogBookTours Challenge, also known as the Flog Your Neighbor Group. I had decided not to play tag, but two of my fellow bloggers put the bee on me today, so I guess I'll have to comply.
First there was Ann Parker, she of the historical mystery bent, who went for the funny bone. She tagged me to name six things that make me happy. So here goes:
Cappuccino to get the morning off to a good start.
A holiday weekend with our extended family (you should hear the stories).
A brisk walk before the mall opens (keeps me young).
Writing a page that really sizzles.
Hearing from a reader who loved the book.
A goodnight kiss with "I love you."
According to the rules, I must now tag five individuals out there in bloggerland. If they've already been hit before, sorry, I didn't make the rules. I just follow 'em.

Now for the lemonade. Freelance Novel Editor Helen Ginger graciously saddled me with the "When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade Award."
I suppose this came about as a result of my blog "What happened to Sunday?" If you haven't read it, drop down two notches. As it happened, she didn't know the rest of the story. That night I came down with a gastrointestinal virus, or some such bug, that definitely qualified as a lemon experience. Fortunately it was gone by the next day, and I'm back to being my usual ornery self.
The rules of this game are that it must be passed on to ten other worthy blogs. So here goes:
1. Candid Canine
2. Jane's Ride
3. Mysterious People
4. Art and Words
5. Circle of Friends Books
6. Mystery Writing and Musings
7. Grandma Is a Writer
8. Speakeasy 1935
Okay, so I ran out of names at eight. Squeeze a few more lemons and enjoy the ade.
