Just saying....

Okay, you guys, this time it's for real. The prepaid books came to my house and I'm in the middle of smoking them/signing them and Madeleina is addressing the envelopes. Now that they're here I realize you will all know way too much about me and that's a pretty scary thought. On the other hand. what the heck do I have to hide after all I've already exposed? Well, you bought the books so you'll find out soon enough.
Fortunately, I'll be in Peru when you do so I can ignore the slings and arrows you'll be sending my way. And the book is freaking gorgeous, so you can't fault me for that.
Just letting you know that life is proceeding. Enjoy the book. And then be jealous that Madeleina, Chepa, Sierra, Alexa, Sara, Italo and Taylor came over last night. And I made the standard potato/egg salad, cucumber/red onion salad, fresh corn, marinated beef, homemade barbeque beans, rotini with 4 cheeses, grilled chicken, sausages, corn/red pepper salad....and we bought a little pool for the girls and they had a great time and Chepa was getting high on champagne and we were laughing and we set off $100 bucks worth of fireworks to celebrate my book being published and we had a great party that only would have been better if you had all been here.
So next time don't be so formal. I don't send out invites. Just be here and the party will happen. Cool? Cool.

Congratulations Peter! You deserve the fireworks, you deserve the party, you deserve the champagne, the food, the family! I know I've said it before, but I can't wait to read it! Have a great time in Peru! Hope to join you there soon! And as for slings and arrows, I'm willing to bet that what will be sent, will be plain old love and understanding...
