Dogs waiting for me.
We're off to see the Big Apple, family, theater, museums, restaurants, walks, friends, etc. The dogs and farm are in excellent hands. Some people were distraught when I reported earlier today that I had to shoot a rabid skunk, and I appreciate how they feel. But I would do it again in a flash.
Whenever you see a skunk or raccoon charging at you or your dogs in broad daylight, run or call for help. It isn't good.
So the blog will be quiet for a few days, and I will miss it. It is so integral a part of my life now, that it seems things don't really happen to me unless I take photos or blog about them. I will report back from Gotham.
Many of you have been with me and this blog for some time, and it is quite a connection, and I very much appreciate it. We are still working to make the blog easier, and better.
I am also very excited. I have to say, I am tired in the head. "Rose In A Storm" took the wind out of my sails, and children's books are not simlple to write, either. But I love doing both and am lucky for the chance. When I get back, I plan on obsessing quickly on the next novel and more children's. And on living my life.
Books on tracking, the Adirondacks, wildlife, and other related subjects have been arriving all week.
But I'm not going to think about that now. Be back soon.
