I'm tired of the rainy and cool. I realize that come August/September/October, when it's boiling hot and dry, I'll regret wanting it to go away, but for now I'm heartlily sick of it. Yes, I realize I'm saving money in watering and mowing, but a few of my plants are teetering on the verge of root rot, including two of my new bluebeards. Grrr....

The moles, however, are loving this weather, which makes ground-swimming easy for them.

We bought new maps for our GPS (in prep to go to Wisconsin), but when we started loading them, the computer said the device didn't have enough memory (so we only loaded certain areas). Would have been handy for them to tell us that before we spent the money. ::rolls eyes::

Process note:
I've finished the draft of DitD, and am taking a week or so to do edits. For example, in order to get some character arcs straight, I have a couple of conversations that need to be altered...nost notably one in chapter 2. This change will, however, provoke a cascade of smaller dialog alterations throughout the book....which means a complete read-through. I can do that, and if you were wondering, I will be incoporating the dratted spring rains as I go along. So, fast read-through progress? 58/602....

Could you just say to them, "All right, everybody. Out of the pool!"? And then offer them cab fare to the zoo or someone else's backyard. ;o)

We spent last year sending them to other people's lawns....where they evidently bore many children who have returned to take back their land (think Isrealis in Palestine). This might get ugly.

I was unaware of the socio-political ramifications of this. When I see the Cheneys' backyard on the evening news, I won't be surprised. Smile for the camera, okay?

I'll be the one covered in the blood of innocent moles....

There are no innocent moles.

They would hold that the groud was there before we came...it's their ground, the ground of their forefathers....

Good luck with the conversation altering edits. That's what I'm doing too, except I'm tackling them as I go along. But I'm sure there will have to be another go at it.

I'm close to 200/602 now, so I'm moving pretty quickly. ;o)

Sorry. We've had rain 15/16 days. We're getting mildew growing on the dirt. Disgusting.
