KN, p. 189 “Fifth Anniversary Thank You from the Kerrians”


Kerriansnotebook_FINAL copy

It’s with great pleasure that we thank you, the readers, for hanging out with us for five years.


We’ve taken some really amazing trips to American Civil War battlefields, endured fog and pouring rain on both American and international golf courses, been trapped in elevators, survived bomb scares, witnessed bloody crime scenes, and lived to tell the tales.


Some intriguing people have agreed to do interviews about their jobs and in the process, have opened the eyes of our readers far and wide about the rigors of law enforcement in its many forms.


Police Academies, Fire Fighter Academies, Emergency Medical Training Schools, Firearms Training sites, Criminal Investigation Facilities –  have all generously allowed us to take photos and chat with the instructors at length. Fascinating stuff.


We’ve met with Visiting Detectives – an assortment that included a psychic detective, a vegetarian detective, and a time-traveling detective from the 1800s. Sheila chimed in while they worked on puzzling cases with me. The Vegetarian Detective brought brownies. Yum.


Kerrian’s Notebook, Volume 1, which included stories from 2011 and 2012 no longer available on the website, was published in response to the readership that wanted the (over 50) stories from the first year collected into one ebook.

  1. To my friends the Kerrians and their dear creator, Patti Phillips, I can’t believe it’s been five years. Man, did that go fast! This lifetime fan congratulates you and wishes you continued success through 2017 and beyond!

    1. Thanks, Cindy! 🙂 I looked up from the keyboard and had to check the calendar when I was working on the year-end stats. Yup! Five years of frivolity – and some serious topics as well. Great experience for the Kerrians (and me, as well). xoxox

    1. Thanks, Jane! It’s been a hoot and a bunch of other fun adjectives. Keep searching for those bodies and ‘ne-er do-wells’ across the pond and we’ll do the same here. 😉 xoxox

    1. Thanks so much, Sue! The research, the golf, the digging…what a ride! More bodies to be found this year! Stay tuned. 😉

  2. Patti–Congratulations on your fifth year anniversary. And thanks too for posting such a long list of entertaining and informative articles and personal observations and experiences. Best to you and the Kerrians for 2017.
