Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #719 - Game of Thrones - Winter is Here - 7-16-17 (and deleted scenes)
HBO released a new trailer for season seven of Game of Thrones last week.
Here's the trailer, some shares from articles online, a mashup of all the trailers to date (EXCELLENT!!), and finally a bit of deleted scenes from previous seasons.
I have been a fan of these books from the late 1990s. I caught on right after Clash of Kings came out, so 1998.
I have been an avid fan ever since, reading all the books at least once and then the show. My wife and I watch the show together. She tried to read the first book but didn't finish.
Now, for the first time ever, the show is moving beyond the books into uncharted territory. Fans are a buzz. Will the stories be canon? Will we see what will be depicted in the books when George RR Martin finally finishes the series?
Supposedly, The Winds of Winter will be released this year, 2017. I have written to George a few times over the years in support of his process, urging him to take his time, and letting him know that there are patient fans out there willing to wait.
I felt the last two books were a bit of a let down from the first three, so I am hopeful that The Winds of Winter will jack up the intensity as the series winds to a close (only one book remaining -- A Dream of Spring). When a release date is announced, I may engage in some re-reading, at least of A Dance With Dragons, which is the only one have I read once and only once and not via audio. So I am ready to plug into the audio of that one.
Liesel and I are both excited for season seven.
We will be moving during the season, so thank goodness for HBO GO, which we may buy separately.
Here's the trailer and a few very minor spoilers. No major spoilers on this page, so you're safe. Anything that feels like a spoiler is just context.

A few takeaways:
BTW, my Ultimate league's theme this year is Thrones.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
