Purple Pencil Blue Moon Adventure

Tonight there was s full moon. Did you get a chance to see it? What did you think?

Would you like to go on an adventure in outer space? To visit the moon, perhaps? The great thing about writing is you can go anywhere, do anything ... all you need is your creativity. And a pen and paper. Or computer.

Purple Pencil Drive-Thru Adventure

Tuesday, June 24, is National Drive-Thru Day!

Where I grew up in the Midwest, Drive-Thrus were everywhere: the bank, fast food restaurants, the dry cleaners, the pharmacy. The weather had a lot to do with people not wanting to get out of their cars.

In sunny Southern California, Drive-Thru's are few and far between. Sure, there are fast food chains with Drive-Thrus, but that's pretty much it. I hear they have Drive-Thru Chapels in Vegas. What sort of business would make an interesting Drive-Thru? A florist? A therapist? An accountant?
