The Journal, Sunday, November 12

Hey Folks,

Well, the last day of the visit of two of my sons, their wives, and five grandchildren (3 knights-in-training, 2 warrior princesses). It’s been something akin to exhausting, but also great fun watching the cousins run and romp and play together.

On the adult side, we’ve all shared good visits, mixing and matching and drifting among each other.

Today will be a day of final visits and hasta-la-laters, then laundry etc. to move back toward a semblance of normalcy. For what’s left of the day, I’ll watch Casablanca for the billionth time (and enjoy it).

Tomorrow, my life as a fiction writer resumes. Finally. (grin) I hope to announce a new challenge, one that actually interests me. I still have a few details to work out so that it’s interesting, easy to follow and of practical use.

See you then.
