While I had originally thought "The Body in the Tower" would be out in mid-July... well, it looks like I was wrong. Things appear to be coming together faster than I had originally anticipated. This is fine with me. There is just one reader with an outstanding copy. I've personally read the entire work through 4 times... that's a lot of reading, and am approaching the point where I start to skim. I've already passed what I call the 'decorative stage,' when color gets added, where the lap pool gets some shimmering blue tile with goldfish accents.
And, speaking of color, more than a dash is beginning to explode across my yard.
And things are getting a bit rocky in the mid-east. That's to be expected. We have an ultra-conservative Idiot Jerk in the White House who has ultra-conservatives into positions of power. The problem is that ultra-conservatives have a very, very sensitive gag reflex when it comes to negotiation and compromise. Their selfish nature always makes them vomit at the mere suggestion they might want to talk... and maybe give a concession. Their most favorite word in any language is "my.' Their 2nd most favorite word is "no." They never weigh the pros and cons in the decision making process. They, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House, have one striking commonality: they never think things through. They see things in either black or white... and in their tiny, little minds they are always
Lovely! It's been nice to have a spring this year.and not go right into the tropical heat. I've been sleeping like a newborn lately.ReplyDelete

We went though s hot spell in Smallville and then this week is proving to be slightly cooler and nicer.ReplyDelete
Still, Humidity is Coming.
Cool is not bad, when you can sleep with the windows openDelete
That’s very pretty! I LOVE flowers. I wish I had a small patio so I could do mini gardening 😄ReplyDelete
And you know conservatives love war. It gives them money. It’s that simple.
Another pic today.Delete
More flowery pictures to come, believe me. My peonies are just getting started.ReplyDelete

But do we really need to see your crape myrtle pop open....it might traumatize me.Delete
I think Maddie's jealous.Delete
The dash of color looks beautiful! And the White House idiots...you are right, nothing is never thought through.ReplyDelete
I believe history will prove this to be the most non-thinking government ever.Delete
