Sunny and warmer today, but the thunderstorms are coming. Spooky saw lightning bugs and says she heard a cicada, but I haven't done either.
Today, I did a remarkable (for me, I'm saying) 2,141 words on the new new Dancy story (new title TBA tomorrow night). I'll easily finish the story tomorrow. And I started writing the glyptosaur paper, which I think is going to be called "Eocene glyptosaur (Reptilia: Anguidae) osteoderms from Alabama and Mississippi, USA."
A very good day at McWane yesterday. I came close to finishing with the left coronoid of "Alfred" the giant tylosaur, but it still needs a mild acid bath (a 5% CH3COOH/95% H2O solution, which is pretty much white vinegar) and then a good coat of polyvinyl butyral resin ("Butvar B-98") as a preservative. I've spent about nine hours on the coronoid so far, and even though it isn't quite done, I moved on ahead to the left splenial, which is gonna make that coronoid look like a walk in the park.
Tonight, we watched Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's Captain Marvel (2019), and I really loved it. Last night, we saw Kieran Darcy-Smith's The Duel (2016).
Please have a look at the current eBay auctions, plus there's Spooky's upcoming birthday, so there's her Amazon wishlist.
