I am saddened that after learning so much about fake posts on FB, people still pass on garbage in the form of disparaging posts. It is amazing to me. Especially when it is written about children who got shot at. I realize that the people who write these posts are paid to do so, but it is our choice as a FB user to pass them on or not. How is it the Bible put it? ‘Judge not lest you be judged.’

I can’t imagine how I would react to being shot at, (I’m lucky and never had that experience), but hiding in a closet the rest of my life is one of the possibilities. I applaud the kids who have stood back up and are speaking out – in just the way our constitution envisioned.

I broke down and watered my lawn, dragging hoses around all day to give the crunchy yellow grass (and the trees) a needed drink. It’s supposed to get colder with a chance of moisture later in the week, but so far none of the moisture has panned out, and what little that came was sucked away by the wind. Watering can’t hurt, like an April shower a little early. The daffodils looked like they really appreciated it.

My new web-site is coming along wonderfully. It is very exciting, along with all of the other media sites being put in place for the release of “Rhyaden.”

My critique partner gave me three pages of errata to fix on one chapter of Compass Point. Just one chapter! What was I thinking when I sent that one off? When I got the list, I went for a walk, now I’m working on this blog – classic avoidance if I ever saw it. If it weren’t for the wind blowing again outside, I’d even consider yard work.
