I was bullied yesterday. I don’t know the name, but lets just call them Jerk Face. I was working in the garden yesterday, pulling weeds, dead heading plants, and building a little wall between some Lavender and a Sea Holly. I have tried to kill the Sea Holly a few times, but it refuses to leave, so I just build walls to keep it from taking over its neighbors.  I spend enough time in the garden to know each bugs territory. The bumble bees make it very clear to the other bugs where the lines are drawn. They have never given me any trouble, and I find it entertaining to watch them defend their little section of the garden by either chasing after the offending bug, or tackling it like a football player. I have seen more than one ground fight that would put professional wrestlers to shame. Yesterday was different. One honey bee decided that she didn’t want me in her garden. Not her section of the garden, the WHOLE garden. It must have been the warm weather that gave her the extra boost of energy and confidence because she spent most of the afternoon chasing me around, buzzing in my ear and bumping me. What on Earth did I ever do to her?? I dodged her attacks pretty well, but I have work to complete. I certainly hope she is in a better mood today.

Bad Luck Charlie: The Dragon Mage Book 1
by Scott Baron
4.4 Stars (155 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy | Science & Math

FREE for a limited time

Charlie Gault had all the luck. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the good kind.

It was looking like Lady Luck had quite a grudge against him. In fact, at this point merely crashing the multi-billion-dollar ship he had helped design would have felt like winning the lottery compared to his current dilemma. If only he were so lucky.

Things had started off all right–that is, until a freak wormhole unexpectedly swallowed his ship, leaving him stranded on an unknown planet far, far from home. With the crew’s lives at stake, Charlie had no choice but to stop his whining, put on his big boy pants, and step up to save them all, and much to his surprise, it actually looked like he might succeed. Of course, that was when things really went sideways in ways that made merely crashing on an uncharted planet seem like a walk in the park.

Suddenly faced with alien space pirates, talking dragons, and something that seemed very much like magic, Charlie found himself adrift, feeling like a space age Robinson Crusoe–only his man Friday was a blue-skinned alien, and this wasn’t just a desert island. It was a whole new galaxy.
