It is Memorial Day Weekend, so please on Monday take some time to think of those we have lost to war. Please remember in your prayers the veteran’s and wounded warriors who served along side them, who now need your help.
The Great American Locust Plague in 1874
While you wait for my next book, here is an amusing tongue in cheek flash fiction story you might enjoy. The plague of locusts finally reached Washington, an emergency meeting was called in the White House. However, it did not get very far when Senator Locutia stormed out of the negotiations, cursing them all, “A plague on both your houses!”
No one took him seriously. After all, like all the rest of them, he was only there for his own best interests, and not willing to negotiate anything. Their President sighed, “Just once, I wish … (Continued on to my Flash Fiction page)

Hope you all have a Nice Memorial Day Today. Please Remember, All the Soldiers we Lost should be thought about this weekend because their fight for freedom made it possible for us to still be here today. My father was a WWII veteran and passed away about twenty years ago, so I was thinking of him this weekend. We had our family picnic yesterday, and today we are simply chilling out.
With millions of people driving around our country, please drive safely, and it is ok to forget something at home … like your temper.
I had an unexpected journey this last week from Wednesday to Today. I had to fly down to Florida on sudden family business. So I am sorry to say this little adventure has put me behind schedule on on my latest Old Testament Book Release. I am still trying for the end of the month and am hopeful I will finish, so we shall see.
This also delayed the release of my new “Catholic Bible Word Search Fun!” Series by at least a week. I took an email poll, and as a result, I will be publishing it under the “JoeB Wocoski” pseudonym and setting up a separate author page for this series. This will prevent confusing it with my current “King James Version (KJV) New Testament Word Search Fun! books.
Today, I took a short break and wrote another story for my short story collection for Halloween. You can see the rough draft version of this latest story on my Flash Fiction tab page. So far I have 60 pages of various lengths of flash fiction, I am trying to get 100-120 pages for my first short story collection.
Well that about wraps it up for today’s news, thank you for visiting today,
