Today's Update - 10 Sep 2014

Today's update is going to be short.  I did get about the same amount of writing done but I made a big boo-boo and let myself get dehydrated while I was working outside.  Wound up with the headache from Hades so I'm going to publish this and then take a long soak and try and stop feeling like an overdone piece of toast.  I'm not burnt, just dried out.  I also tripped on some saw briars I was trying to get rid of that were/still are clogging the overflow culvert between our manmade pond and the natural pond next door.  Our neighbors are working on their side and we are working on ours.  The culvert hasn't really been needed - frankly we didn't even know it was there - but our ponds and the swamp are now so high it is just a good idea to get the maintenance out of the way just in case that way nothing backs up and goes into the swamp from our pond instead of backing up into the other ponds and canals in the area.  That happened back in '98 and it was a huge mess with washed out road beds, collapsed septic fields, fish frolicking in backyards, etc.

Stories for your enjoyment:

Mother Hen's Recipes

Now I'm making no absolute promises but it is my plan to finish one of the stories over the weekend.  Which one will depend on which one catches my fancy and what mood I'm in.  I'm hoping that Linderhall or Larkspur reaches out and grabs me but we'll see.

Today's videos are on the "Day of the Triffid" theme.  The saw briars had me laid up and so did the heat so it was a natural choice for me to have playing in the background while I recovered.  OK, kinda silly but I saw the original movie on Creature Feature when I was a kid and I've loved it ever since.  Here are the two versions that I could find on Youtube.  There is a 1962, 1981, and a 2009 version.  The 2009 version wasn't bad but I'll always love the original.

  1. You get healed up and rested, getting dehydrated is nothing to fool with. Oh it would be grand to have one of those stories finished, I am drooling already.
