  1. Love that blue!

    Morning, gang. I am still fighting the pollen that would not die and wishing I could go live in the desert for about two months. Sheesh.

    Getting old is definitely not for the faint-hearted. This litany of silly aches/pains/discomfort makes me crazy!!

    Got some really awesome feedback on the short story I'd pulled out of the Telep antho. Going to work on that this weekend (needs to be tweaked) and then see about doing the e-pub thing. Will be interesting...

    Still haven't heard back from the agent. Le sigh. I think I shall try to call him today if I get a break @ the mimes. This waiting is insane-making!!

    Nic - glad you're on the mend!!

    FarF - re: stories - don't know if I'll have much time to beta, but I'd love to have them as a whole to read on my Kindle. :)

    TTFN & happy Thursday!!

  2. I agree - love the blue.

    Maria, if it is any comfort, Santa Fe (high desert) had a juniper pollen count so high, it couldn't be counted. Much suffering there.

  3. Sorry to hear about your allergies, Maria. Everyone is getting nicked by the pollen right now.

    Due to extreme weather pattern changes caused by global warming, pollen is not only high but new varities of it are popping up. Death Valley alone is a major cause of new pollen.

    My yard is one big moss pit. You sink into the earth. Ugh.

  4. Hey all! Andi, did you "squill" with delight when you saw that flower?

    From yesterday: Jim, I think it was pretty even. It's always fun to see him reach a new step forward.

    Janet, people like that suck. I think the appropriate response would have been, "then you should leave, because you're a far from normal bitch." Good to hear the grandma ripped her a new one. Cake's more fun. Especially those cake truffle things you've been talking about. Hope that turns into a big seller for you!

    Mason's picked up some kind of buggly that's made him clingy and feverish. He woke up after midnight last night & it took about an hour to get him back to sleep. He sounded better when Mrs. Fetched called just a little while ago, I hope it sticks.

    Maria, no prob. I know you're crazy-busy right now. I'm hoping my own c/b ebbs a little now that taxes are mostly done.

    OK, back to the mime-y thing.

  5. Damn Maria, what a double whammy -- high-pollen counts and a low service

    Howdy Dina. I hope you're having some matching blue skies.

    Janet, moss=photos ops. Time to hone your macro photo-taking skills. :)

    Good pun, Farf and I would've if I'd had any idea what it was when I first saw it. But, as usual, I needed Candis to identify it for me. Feel better vibes being sent out to Mason.
