Issue 181 – Classic Cars, Part 2

July 19, 2019 Issue 181 An Occasional Newsletter

Hello, I’m b-a-c-k . . . after a break to wrap up a brand new book of mine. I’ll have an announcement about that in a few days. All I will say right now is that I starting researching it in . . . 1994. Yep, true. So it only took me 25 years to complete the project. I just wish to heck I had been working by the hour. Even at the hourly wage paid a new Greeter at Walmart , would be rolling in extra cash. As it is, I have spent countless hours and have had many hundreds of dollars in related expenses (travel, gas, motels, food, books, etc.). So unless this book takes off like a rocket and makes the NEW YORK TIMES “Bestseller” list, I will never get out of this deep hole. Sad, but true. Ah, but then there is the deep satisfaction of a job well done.

Hmmmm. Right now I would probably setting for a little less satisfaction and a whole lot more cash. But, enough of my dream world. That book will be issued both as a PAPERBACK book and as an eBOOK. Stay tuned.

Oh, hey, we’ll get back to the classic cars in a moment. But I need to let you know that know about a big sale. Noooo, it is not another Amazon Prime thing or some department store’s every other week fantastic special. It is the once-a-year “One-Half Off” sale by my major eBook distributor, SMASHWORDS.COM ( https://www.smashwords.com/). Literally hundreds of authors are participating, including little ol’ me. And here is how to go right to my eBooks with them: https://www.smashwords.com/books/search?query=paregien

All of these books of mine are 50% off of the regular price . . . until July 31, 2019. That includes these titles:

More On Classic Cars

That pretty lady is Christell Ndayisaba, the recent bride of our long-time friend Jean Ndayisaba. They live in Norman, Oklahoma but are both originally from Rwanda, Africa. Jean received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Oklahoma Christian College and now works for Boeing Aircraft in OKC. That 1939 cop car is a nice fixture out in front of the Manatee County Sheriff’s Department building in Bradenton, FL. – Photo by Stan Paregien in 2019.
This “two-headed” 1955 or 1956 Ford(s) is quite an attention-getter. It is located on 9th St. West in Bradenton, FL. Photo by Stan Paregien, 2019.

Well, that’s about it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Adios — Stan

  1. Good to hear from you and see all the great things you sent. I don’t know if I have told you? I had to stop singing shows. I’m losing my memory’s. I’ll always remember you, your wife, kids and the great times we had. Your Friend, Harvey

    1. Harvey, Peggy and I are so very sorry about your health problems. You are such a talented guitarist and singer, you blessed hundreds of people just singing at the Blue Bell and at nursing homes, not to mention larger venues. Yes, we remember the good times, too. You are a cherished friend. “Old friends” are kinda hard to come by, so we’re not gonna let you go. Our love and best wishes to you.
