Sunny and cool


I have a lot to say about the road trip, but not the time to say it here. I’ll post an entry in the next few days.

My pre-Derby article is up at Femmefan:

I nearly ended up with a German Shepard this morning. I walked to the post office, to mail a package to my soldier. And there’s a gorgeous German Shepard trotting down the street. He wore an electric fence collar, so I can only imagine that he broke through his fence. He had a great deal of purpose. He was also well-trained. I told him “UP” and he jumped onto the curb, and then I told him “stay” and he stayed until I could cross four lanes of traffic to him. He kept staring down the street, anxious to be off, but he’s a dog, and he’s going to do what he’s told . . .to a point. I couldn’t find his tags, and, when I tried to grab his collar and take him back up the street, he firmly and gently put up a paw and pushed my hand a way. He licked my hand to let me know he appreciated my effort, and then took off.

I flagged down a police car and told him about it – I don’t want the dog to get hit by a car – and give him my cell phone number. If he can’t find the dog’s owner, or it looks like the dog has to go to the pound, I want to call a friend of mine who lost her dog a few months ago and see if she’d foster it. The dog’s beautifully behaved, definitely not a young dog – gray on the muzzle – and very determined.

I hope he finds his humans.

He was definitely on a mission.

In spite of having company here all week, I have to do some serious work on the serials. I want to see if I can get anything done before I have to leave for the theatre.

The newsletter mailing is almost all out; the press mailing went out before I left. I still have to do the library mailing and the radio mailing.

And, I have to work on the entry about the road trip.

All before next week’s road trip.


I need an extra eight or nine hours in each of the days left this week – hours where no one can reach me, and I can have uninterrupted work time.

Sigh.

If you have a chance, check out my friend Colin’s book of poetry and photographs, Brick by Brick, available through his site, Freedom from the Mundane. It’s quite wonderful.
