10:10 – Barbara is off to the gym and supermarket. Usually, she goes to the gym MWF and does a supermarket stop on Friday, but this Friday she’s headed down to Winston to run errands.

I decided to re-read the Home series by Chris Weatherman, AKA Angery American. I read them piecemeal as they came out, but I decided that binge-reading them from start to finish was worthwhile. They’re not great literature by any means, but they’re a lot better than most of the PA series out there. It’s interesting how many PA novelists live around here. William R. Forstchen (One Second After) lives an hour or so down the road in Black Mountain, NC. Chris and his wife and daughters live in the Blue Ridge Mountains, an hour or so SW of here, on the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, not far from Forstchen. Franklin Horton, another good PA novel series author, lives an hour or so WNW of here, in far SW Virginia. If I had the time, I’d write a series myself.
