SURVIVING CORONA WITH HUMOR~ANOTHER RICK STEBER LATEST!
We each are navigating the threat of Covid-19 in our own way. Many are willing to comply with all the government imposed mandates and directives. They self-quarantine, stay-at-home to save lives, squirt and wash with hand sanitizer, social distance, wear a mask even when they are alone in their car, and believe we are all in this together. Others in society view the mandates and directives as Constitutional infringements and a classic case of governmental overreach. They feel it is the duty of government to protect their rights and up to each citizen to protect his or her personal health. This group is willing to take their chances against infection by using a common sense approach and going about their normal everyday lives. Most survivors have discovered the best way to deal with this catastrophic event is to treat it with a sense of humor. To that end, here is a strong dose of Corona humor.....Enjoy and stay safe.

NEW!! A COWBOY TO LOVE ~ Novel
A COWBOY TO LOVE (Retail Price $15.00) Novel This quote summarizes A Cowboy to Love, a contemporary novel set in Northeast Oregon at the end of the Second World War. The main character, Jo Walker, falls in love with a local stockman. They marry and he takes her to his ranch on the Snake River. The only way into the ranch is a long horseback ride or the once-a-week arrival of the jet boat. The solitude of such an isolated existence eventually takes its toll. Jo gives up on her marriage, moves to town and becomes entangled in a steamy romance with a married rodeo cowboy, an affair so wild and dodgy that townsfolk are incapable of wrapping their minds around such a thing. It is the intertwining of this impossible love - the threads of that love will last a lifetime - that is at the heart of this wonderfully entertaining novel.
