A June of Sleepless Nights

Sunny today, mostly. Tonight, the cicadas are loud, and it's one of the best sounds I know. Currently, it's 84˚F, with the heat index at 89˚F.

Another sleepless night last night. Maybe three hours, when all was said and done, but three broken up hours. At least, though, the black mood lost its grip on me somewhere in there. So, it was a better day, even without sleep.

Still, I spent the morning and early afternoon trying to make some progress on the glyptosaur paper. I wanted to have a first draft by June 30, because I go back to fiction on July 1. Now, I'm not sure I'll be able to get the paper done that soon, thanks to the sleeplessness.

Regardless, tomorrow is a McWane day, sleep or no sleep. I need to get back to the tylosaur. Tomorrow, is, of course, also Spooky's birthday.

There are three mostly grown kittens living with their mother in a cave in the little cliff behind the house.

And that was today, more or less. Oh, except that I had a really good baloney sandwich for dinner, and then signed a whole mess of eBay books for people.

Speaking of which, Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. They include a copy of Tales from the Woeful Platypus (2006), truly one of my harder to find books.

Later Taters,
