All's Quiet on the Southern Front

Just a quick post to let everyone know that we are safe, never had to evacuate, and the threat has subsided. For the second time in four years, we've managed to dodge the wildfire bullet and we're incredibly grateful.

The kids will be out of school until the end of the week and the air outside is barely breathable. Although the winds dying down is good in one sense (it stops pushing the fire), it's bad in another (the smoke hangs around indefinitely).

Since everyone here is stir crazy, I'm planning a short-term evacuation to the Ruben H. Fleet Science Center today. One more day cooped up in this house might result in homicide, and I'm not entirely sure whether it would be infanticide, matricide, fratricide, or some combination thereof.

Hey, remember me? Cheryl S.

I just dropped in to check on how you are doing, with the fires. Glad to hear things are OK.

Re: your September 26 post, I'd love to read the new beginning of Unbridled if you are still interested in feedback. And, DH and I are big fans of "House", as well!

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for popping in! It's so nice to hear from you.

And I'd be happy to send you the first three chapters of Unbridled when I've finished rewriting them. Sometime next month, most likely. Just email me at guavaln at yahoo dot com to be sure I have your address.

Hope you and your dh and the kids are all doing great!
