Work was utterly crazy today, but there's plenty of good stuff:

     Got five books, two movies, and one cd on my annual run on the half-price bookstore yesterday, then supplemented that with a binge on Half.com. Quite enjoying the cd! (Il Divo)

     My DSL was out this morning...frustrating, but it made me grateful it happened on a workday, or I'd have been very aggravated! Also grateful for great service overall; this hardly ever happens.

     Beth finished reading Hope's Passage last night! It was a treat to get that slew of feedback e-mails. =)

     A Bald Eagle flew overhead when I was checking my mail this afternoon. And I think I saw one out the window yesterday too, as I was dozing off for a short nap before my dental appointment. By the time my brain realized there was no WAY that was a crow, it was too late. This is definitely the time of year for spotting them.

     Annnnnnd, 'Defender' is underway! I'm quite tickled, after all the trouble it's given me.

Sorry to spam you, but once I got started there was no stopping. You tell a fascinating tale.

Good haul at the bookshop! You have tickets to see Il Divo later in the year, don't you? When was that again?

Sounds like it has been a good year for you and bald eagles. A similar thing happens to me from time to time with black cockatoos. I don't see them very often and it always takes me a minute to realise that the beak is way too round to be a crow...

I'm pleased to hear that the writing is going well and to hear you sounding so upbeat about it.

Actually, I've decided against 'Il Divo' tickets unless I should fall into a sizeable sum of money. The ones I can afford are so far out I'd need binoculars to watch them, which really isn't worth that price to me. I believe the date is July 8th.

Late winter/early spring seems to be the time for Bald Eagles around where I live, when they're migrating up from the Wabasha area.

I'd love to see black cockatoos in the wild! =D

Thanks! I expect I might spend the rest of the workweek battling floodwaters (what with the forecast) so I'm glad I at least got it started.

Sounds like you had a fun time shopping at the bookstore. Did you get thesame Divo cd you gave me? Which two movies did you get?

Is the new character a mouse? And from which of new
stories is he from?

You are having some year seeing bald eagles. Progress on Defender story that is wonderful.

They only had one 'Il Divo' cd, I think it's their first one, just called 'Il Divo.' I can't remember the movies right now--I'm trying to replace my VHS's, so it was something I had on VHS, I think. It might be 'Speed' and 'The Sixth Sense,' but I could be wrong.

A mouse?! I don't think he looks like a mouse! It's supposed to be Hileko as a little fuzzy cub, rather connected to the gift dialogue with his father when he played with the bubbles.

Certainly LOTS of eagles around this year. Did you read about the Golden Eagle that smashed into the front of a truck in Nevada? I'm amazed she survived!
