Well, this Chimp may have misplaced a few of his picture cards, but there is a method to his madness. Please bear with me.

Yes, I realize this is nine months early (November 25th).

Friends asked why I ignored International Woman’s Day on March 8th. Honesty, these days fail to excite me.

Don’t Drink & Drive, You May Spill Your Drink

The Lonely Author

My apologizes to all.

Lonely Author usually uploads a writing related post on Tuesday to stir up discussion. But I have an important message I want to share. I will try not to preach.

During this holiday season it is easy to get caught up in the festivities. When family and friends get together it will be tempting to have an extra glass of wine (or whatever you are drinking).  Lonely Author knows all about excess, he usually gets drunk on life.

This time of year also marks the height of DUI season.

Please be careful on the road. If you see a relative or friend has had to much to drink, don’t let them drive. Don’t let them become a statistic.

Don’t let your holiday celebrations end in tragedy.

Holiday blessing to you and yours.

Keep smiling. Keep writing.
