A Murderous Monday(metaphorically speaking, of course)

 “You say right, sir: o’ Monday morning;”–Hamlet II.ii (I found 7 references to Monday in Shakespeare!)

After a very enjoyable four days away, I am once again in Monroe, facing a to-do list that I cannot possibly accomplish. Today and Wednesday, I am going to try to focus on working on my musical programs for schools. Tomorrow, I’ll leave early for book business in Baton Rouge and in New Orleans. Some good things are in the works, but I don’t want to jinx them by prematurely talking about the details. Hopefully, I can accomplish my errands and meetings and return early enough to attend our Camp Thomas McGuire SCV meeting in West Monroe tomorrow night. We’ll see.

Book Signing News:

I’ll be leaving again Wednesday night after my college class for programs with schools and book signings in the Fort Worth area. I won’t return until Sunday, but I should have access to Internet every day except for Saturday night. For specific details on my schedule, check my calendar at rickeypittman.com
