Do you believe that the weatherman has a clue what he is talking about? He is saying that there is going to be some pretty decent weather for the next week, before the temperatures start to dip again. Well. I guess it is possible; the geese haven’t begun to pile into the area yet. Yes, I happen to live about an hour drive from the world’s capital of geese meeting marshes. When they begin to come from the North to get ready for their great migration they fly in, pick the farmers fields bare, until they are ready to bust, and gossip…. Yes, you heard right, gossip; you can hear them for miles and miles. Do they care if they are keeping everyone up during the night? You know it, absolutely not. Just ask the neighbor that lives close to the bed in the river here. I have seen tens of thousands of the honkers in that area. It is as if they noticed the sign that say “Town limit, no firing of firearms allowed.” (Tell that to the neighbor that shot those crows for getting him up at 4AM every morning in spring) Everyone who was asked about it looked shocked… then denied hearing a thing. “Did you hear a shotgun go off as the sun rose this morning?” “Oh, so that was what that pop was!” “Gee officer, I was otherwise occupied.” (No, don’t expect a straight answer as to how.)
Snoop knows to keep a distance from the geese when they land in the yard, and yes, it has been known to happen. He waves from the front porch, asks how the young geese are coming along with their flying lessons, and wishes them a safe trip. (Before telling the hunters where to find them.) He is such a stool pigeon. (And proud of it.)
We have Lúthien’s Song formatted, and it is up for pre-order on Smashwords. We are watching to see where it shows up next, it is always fun to watch for that. Snoop checks for it on the ipad, between naps, which I use the main screen. He understands I need the larger screen. He says I am getting old and the eyesight is the first thing to go.
I have begun to work on ‘For the King and Elven Empire’, although I am not writing very fast. My mind is clear on what I want written, Snoop and my back has other ideas. Snoop says I need to nap more, preferably with him, because he needs cuddles, badly. My back says it hasn’t healed yet, and I wonder what I have done to deserve it. I can’t remember anything strenuous that I did on my back. Or is that with my back. No matter, I am totally innocent.
Well time to get back to work and, check to see what they wrote about ‘King’s Daughter’ in the reviews. I understand there is one on the 20th (today) and another on Monday. I will post the links separately. Until next week, have a good one… and don’t do anything the Elves wouldn’t do.
