I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is certainly one of my favorite holidays. Placing it on a Thursday rather than a Friday or Monday gives us that one extra day off work, one more than is typical for holidays. It is a time for family, food, and togetherness with friends. What could be better?
As I mentioned in last week's blog, at the urging of my daughter and several friends, I have joined Facebook. If you have been following this blog and would like to be a Facebook friend, please search for my name. There are several listings for people named Michael Abraham, but I am the guy with the funny hat and the suspenders. This picture was taken as I was preparing to enter a coal mine doing research for the book. Once the book is published, I will make an announcement to everyone on my friends list with information as to where the book can be purchased.
As I have said before, I appreciate the patience everyone has shown in getting the book into print publication. This process has taken much longer than I once expected.
I have had some discussions with friends in the area about forming a writer's club. If you live in or near Blacksburg and are interested in joining such a group, please let me know.
