Last night, I wrote the death of a beloved character. This morning, my cousin Kathy messaged me to tell me that the last of my dad's brothers had died. There is now only one aunt left in Dad's generation.

Uncle Buddy lived a hard life, and he had more dark adventures in his life than I could write into a book. I can honestly say he was one of the toughest men I've ever known, and I'm glad to have had him in my family.

Kathy and I traded a couple of stories as we remembered him today, and while I won't be going back to Oklahoma for his funeral, I will take a few minutes to remember my uncle tonight with a cigar and a belt of cheap whiskey. Because honestly, I don't think Buddy would want it any other way.

We used to call my man cave in the garage The Pig Pen. It has a small pool table, darts and music, etc.
We had to do warranty service on the pool table one time and they sent us a new one rather than fix it. But I never put the new one together because it was too big for the garage.
Alex's 18th birthday is coming up, so he is having a party with his friends in the back yard. Consequently, we put the extra pool table on the deck in a nod to The Drew Carey Show. The backyard is now known as The Honeysuckle Lounge

I was about to shout incredulity over the idea that a company might replace your entire pool because it was in warranty, when I realized I had blipped entirely over the word 'table'.

(So glad I reread. Could've been embarrassing.)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALEX!

It's no secret that I have a man crush on Bruno Mars. Or at least it's not anymore. I also love old dance movies and musicals. 

So yeah, this.

I’m sitting in the darkness and mourning the loss of a figment of my imagination.

My eyes sting with salty grief, and my heart is fighting to find its way out of my throat.

Who would think that the death of an imaginary friend in an imaginary world would affect its creator so acutely?

+Nicola Smith I wrote something about that effect once. I wrote a very dark scene for book five of my series that only lasts for a few minutes in the reader's mind. But I was there for more than a month. It even affected my diet.

+Simone Oech it's almost like losing a loved one.

Today is the boy's 18th birthday. In true fatherly fashion, I wrote this:
Yesterday, it was a felony to hit you. Today, it's a misdemeanor.

I bleed words and put glitter on my butt for colonoscopies.
Introduction
Shawn Jones does not speak of himself in the third-person, because it is silly. But he is a hypocrite, so I wouldn't put it past me to do so anyway.
I write. Thanks to the support of family and friends, I finally chased this dream of bleeding (e)Ink and find myself remarkably happy. When I am not posting about my word-blood, you will find things like food, politics (and other forms of stupidity), science, and humor in my feed. 
Finally, I like my dog more than I like you, unless you buy my books. Then I like you just fine. But I still like my dog more. Thank you for helping me to buy stuff, though. You rock for that.
Bragging rights
I gave my dad coneys and coffee.
