an odd assortment of things...
On the meander back we stopped at a flea market in a hall called Paul's Hall. Not much there. An old copy of Cold Comfort Farm I'm glad to re-own. I got into a fight with an Australian woman who didn't want to take any money from me for some old recipe magazines. We did laugh at one book called Favourite Potatoes! and one called Daschounds for Dummies but we resisted. We did get a car hippopotomas. Oh, you don't have one? Odd. Ours, it turns out, is named Bev.
I read somewhere that the car is the only place most parents can get one on one time with their kids and I have to agree with that. S-D was a bit quiet and morningly grumpy in the beginning but she warmed up. We decided on a symbol to use to find each other in our next lives but I'm not telling. That was a very fun conversation.
I just finished working on the programme for the play I'm directing that goes up (and down) next Friday. I still am waiting for some bios. I would like this work if it weren't for the fact that people will NOT do what they promise to. arggggh! We have a good long rehearsal in a proper space tomorrow afternoon. I really hope everyone is there or I shall go completely mad.
I have been working steadily on The Rock Walker. I am pleased but can't really discuss it because it will sound ...well...crazy. But it isn't. I assure you. I will have the 2nd Draft done in a couple of weeks and then readers will read and then it'll be off to the big guys. I feel full to the brim with confidence for this one.
Cal gets home from Cost Rica or somewhere like that today. He has my lense thus the no current pics. I'll throw something in to liven up the old thing!
later lovely readers. oh AND please comment. If only to say pbtthhttt! (a Bill the cat reference for you Berkley Breathed fans)
