Back from Vacation...

Well here I am after 11 days in a tent.

A great time up North with only a smattering of familial bickering. Everyone survived the ordeal and we're all the better for it. Actually, it was great. We swam in Lake Huron and Big Basswood Lake pretty much ever day. We had campfires and there were sing-a-longs with the in-laws (I had quite enough of those for a while). We ate too many hotdogs and if I see another hamburger in the next month it'll be too soon.

Read the latest Harry Potter book and it was pretty much what I expected. I am really enjoying The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly. It's everything you'd want in a Burmese Prison story and much, much more.

While on Vacation I discovered a few things that need fixing in Loremaster so the submission to DAW will need to wait for a few days.

There's a pile more stuff to add but the lawn needs cutting, the garden needs weeding and there's a short story in my head just aching to get out.
