The last few weeks have not left much opportunity for keeping up with my writing, or, for that matter, anything else.
First, I had to make the US government and the beloved IRS happy by the 15th. I have never been very good about getting returns filed on time - at least not my own - but this year I filed my extension and actually completed my return by the 21st. I do believe this may be a record for me.
In celebration of being so efficient, the pod (my mother, my aunt, Griffy, Sophie and Sadie) made our annual trek to Grand Lake, Colorado, looking for moose. I do love South Padre Island, but it will be hard to leave my mountains behind. Anyway, I put Griffy on a plane back to Rochester, NY, this afternoon and I will be busy finalizing all the details for opening the store and making the move to Texas.
I performed my first civic duty as a Texas resident, last week. I completed and mailed my absentee ballot for the town election. I hope my candidates are successful.
Sophie and Sadie are missing their big Papa, so I think I'll go give them a little attention. Then tomorrow I can put my nose back to the grindstone.
