Of Pigs and Pearls

Yesterday was not quite as hot as was the day before, and the afternoon actually cooled down quite a bit, following a thunderstorm. Currently, it's 86˚F, with the heat index at 91˚F.

At best, I slept four hours last night,

We managed to proofread both "Hydrarguros" and "La Peau Verte." I'm increasingly worried and frustrated that I'm sinking all this time into proofing this collection, when I need to be writing something new. But, it is what it is.

I had the doctor at 3:30 p.m., and that went on until almost 6 p.m. We got burgers from Milo's for dinner and started watching Ken Burns' The War (2007), which I thought I'm seen, but actually had not. Later, we watched The Big Sleep (1946), another of my comfort films.

Sonya Taaffe has a new short story collection out, and you should have a look.

Also, please take a gander or two at the current eBay auctions. Thanks.

We need to finish the proofreading by tomorrow evening, so I can get back to writing. But we have six stories to go.
