"You know the sound of thunder, don't you, Mrs. Garrett?"

A heavy rain about the time I got up this morning, maybe about 8:30 a.m. What they call a frog strangler. But then the sun came out and it was a fine spring day. And tomorrow we're supposed to exceed 80˚F. Currently, it's 64˚F.

Today, a whole bunch of email, both writing- and paleontology-related. My plan is to spend most of what's left of April doing paleo', going back to the writing the last week of April. Of course, the truth is I'll wind up doing all sorts of editing and who knows what all that's writing work, because that's the way it always goes. Still, I'll be at the McWane Center here in Birmingham on Friday and at the State Museum in Tuscaloosa next Thursday.

Early this afternoon, I finished reading Larry McMurtry's By Sorrow's River (2003), and then I read a new mosasaur paper (2019), "Insights into the anatomy and functional morphology of durophagous mosasaurines (Squamata; Mosasauridae) from a new species of Globidens from Morocco," and then there was a trip to Southside, to Alabama Art Supply. And tonight we got the two-hour season premier of Deadliest Catch.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

Later Taters,

1:31 p.m.
