Starting From The Beginning

My name is Stephen Winn and I want to say thanks to you for stopping by my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment on this site or on my website at:

Since this is the introduction to my blog, I have to give credit where it's due. The idea to do this project came from my daughter Andrea. She didn't tell me about her blog, but I found out about it from my sister, Pat, who heard about it from another family member. That's how things go sometimes. I had a look at Andrea's setup and was impressed, so I started thinking about starting my own. Meanwhile, Writer's Digest kept reminding me in several emails that it's a good idea for a writer to start a blog, so that settled it!

I plan to use this format to discuss matters relating to the murder mystery fiction novels I write and ideas I have about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that I think will be of value to others. If something I write about has value for you in some way, then I have succeeded in achieving at least one of my many objectives.

I certainly hope you enjoy your visit here at my blog and at my website, and come back often. Oh, and please take a moment or two to tell me what you think of my articles, or share one of your own experiences.

Thanks again for your visit,

So, I decided to visit your Blog ... wow! It's quite something. I love the city scape at the top of the page. I also like the fact that there is a picture accompanying each article and a summary opening paragraph. Your articles certainly make one think and perhaps change one's perspective. I intend to come back again! Cheers!

Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you offer. It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same unwanted rehashed information. Wonderful read! I've saved your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

A Tale of Two Blankets

It's seldom that I complain about something, but the two blankets referred to in this article were not just any two blankets. They belonged to my dear departed mother. My sister bought them for her and spared no expense. Both were Hudson's Bay blankets and each was made of pure soft wool. The more expensive of the two was ivory white, known as a "multistripe iconic point" blanket. It has the traditional green, yellow, red and blue wide stripes across it horizontally at the top and bottom.

So What About Guns?

First things first.

My dear dad, Ed, used to work for an airline. One day he came home and asked me if I would like to join the 'Airline Gun Club' and of course my answer was yes! I was eight years old at the time, so I was very excited to be grown up enough to finally have a chance to shoot a real .22 caliber target rifle instead of just an imitation 'cap' gun. I began to like it so much that I started going twice a week until I was in my mid-teens. That's when I started to play guitar and noticed that order. I can't recall ever missing a single night at the range over those years with the club, unless it was closed for a holiday.
