Well, the final edit changes for TRATCHARS has been done, and it is in the formatting bin. I am expecting the second last edits in for Earwen’s Song sometime during the next week… celebrating here... just like our American friends were doing over the last few days with their Thanksgiving. (without the turkey). I am hoping everyone had a great time, ate lots of turkey and pumpkin pie.
You know what else is finished? 3, counting them on my fingers, 3, statues, courtesy of Thena and Tath. (Mostly Thena). How did it happen, do you ask? Well, in the first part… you have to know something is wrong when you hear a huge crash and 2 cats come racing out of the room, tumbling over each other and running each other over to get out of the area before mama figures out that they were in there... too late kids… busted. They had the most guilty expressions I have seen, (well since watching TROUBLE WITH ANGELS, when the 2 girls got caught by the Mother Superior when they were doing something they shouldn’t have. To be fair, they did try to stop, but they were going too fast, and the china cat (yes it was antique), got in the way. (I should never have put it on the floor so they wouldn’t knock it off the furniture.) I thought it was safe in the corner. But, you know how fur slides on hardwood.
At that point it was cats 2, statues, zip. Casualties, Tamarah the fairy goddess, and 1 china cat. The next day, while I was working in the kitchen, I heard a huge crash in the living room. I knew it wasn’t Tath this time, he was sitting on a chair in the kitchen with this I didn’t do it, look on his face. I went into the room that Thena had quickly vacated, to find what used to my mom’s 3ft high (Yes, I had stashed it in a corner on the floor for safety.) ceramic Grecian lady, in pieces. (I had spent a whole day painting the gold sections on that statue myself). I went boogaloo all over that cat. She played with the pieces while I swept them up. Cats 3, statues zip. Little bro suggested I retire all statues until the cats cooled off… remembering the broken fairy I found after Snoop was gone… I may never have ornaments on the furniture if I did that… but, I promise, they will learn.
Well, I am going to change things around a little, with the schedule for the books... not so much the schedule, as what is in some of them. It seems there will now be 2 spinoffs from the Elven Chronicles, beginning at the end of 2017. We will see how that goes. The things I don’t let myself get talked into. Well, I will get off this machine, so you don’t have to read anymore at this time... you can walk off your Thanksgiving meal... I realize this can take time... and I can go hobble the cats. Hope everyone had a great time with family and friends over the holidays. And now we can begin to look forward to the most wonderful time of the year... adding to the National debt.
Take care, don’t slip on the ice, either in or out of the car. (and if you see 2 Siamese cats shivering in the snow, one Seal Point and the other Lilac point) they are probably mine and I am teaching them what it is like to be homeless. (It will only happen if they manage to kill the statue on the top of the china cabinet). Until next week… have a good one.
