In case you need to know where the “quotes and notes” came from, here it is.

Our new book was almost ready to print. Dekie was working on the formatting. In October, 2014,, in observance of Breast Cancer Month, I told my Facebook followers that I would post a motivational and annotated cancer quote every day for the entire month.

The effort was received well. A lot of people started following and several cancer victims thanked me profusely for the help they got from the posts. At the end of October I said, “well, there it is, I hope you liked it. I’m done.” I received a lot of requests to continue so I told Dekie that I wondered if I could do a quote and note every day for a year. It’s a daunting project but now I am two months into it and going strong. I switched from an emphasis on cancer to one of hope, optimism, and happiness.

By the way, the book isnow here and has been well received

“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days–Facing cancer treatments with optimism and humor”

John P. Schulz spent his formative years growing up in the southeastern United States, and received a degree in English from the University of Georgia. With the exception of a short time teaching, John has held many important positions that range from garbage truck driver to ornamental plant grower to hardware salesman in rural Alabama. He has been a landscape designer and installer for over thirty years. He currently refers to himself as a landscape artist and as a writer. He lives in Rome, Georgia with his wife, Dekie, and one special coonhound named Speck. Contact John Schulz by sending an email to wherdepony@bellsouth.net. (Speck died of old age this past year but I’m just going to leave the above paragraph alone. She was special.

    John, Thanks for your book, Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days. It inspires me through my own cancer journey and got me through treatment. Hope all is well. I have been cancer free for a year now.

      It seems that three years of dealing with cancer got in the way of the redneck trilogy. I am, however, preparing to re-develop this blog series but it may take a slightly different tack. Thanks for asking
