Today, Tomorrow and

Today's letter is T - so either Today or Tomorrow would be T words to write about as in live for Today because Tomorrow is not guaranteed. However, I'm going to write about Taming Maria.

This Tale takes place in a part of California that I love, the Monterey area  It's filled with rolling hills and juniper trees with cattle grazing on the hillside and sometimes miles and miles of vineyards producing some of the finest wine. Depending on where you are, you smell the sea air and hear the gulls searching for their next meal.

I can only imagine what it looked like during the time this novel takes place. For those not familiar with this book, it's the story of two Old California ranching families and the temptestuous coming together or Maria Bartola and Juan Cabrillo.


Also, while I'm on the letter T, Blondie had the TEMERITY to complain that I didn't give her a shout out when I did the letter B.  So in honor of Blondie and her area of California (well, within the proximity) you go girl. BTW, in case you are not aware, Blondie and her husband Ty make some of the best wooden paddles available.  Go by and visit.

Taming Maria is available at Amazon.com and  LSF Publications, Inc.

    1. It is beautiful. I told Blondie when she makes one that doesn't hurt, to let me know and I'll buy one, but they're pretty to look at as long as there are none handy in my house.

  2. You're hitting some good points today. Loved the book, love the idea of living for today and I definitely have a love/hate relationship with Blondie's paddles!

  4. I agree about your Ts!
    Love Blondie's paddles. I think if you use Blondie and Ty's paddles gently... It produces a nice thud...! Over jeans lol! That is for wimpy me!
