Storm survivor...

I appear to have survived Tropical Storm Cindy.

Yawnnnnn! We MIGHT have gotten a wind gust or two that broke forty miles an hour. According to the weather map, we've gotten 0.36″ of rain. The power stayed on all night.

The local TV station has been full apocalypse over this, having an opportunity to step away from their reporting of new flowerbeds at taxpayer expense.

The reality is that the weather has been the equivalent of a mediocre winter storm, nothing more.

To the readers who emailed and messaged me about my status, thank you for your concern. I appreciate it.

Cindy. And other storms.

It is with some humor that I note that Tropical Storm Cindy is slated to wander ashore in the wee hours of Thursday morning just a few miles east of here.

Fear not I've sat in THIS exact location when Hurricane Ike took a similar path and we had 80+ MPH winds here.

New Feedback System on SOL

Because I don't pay a lot of attention, this one snuck (that's the past tense of 'sneak') up on me.

There's a new feedback system going into effect today. Instead of your comments on my stories going out to my Gmail address where they show up in an external email program, they will stay here on the SOL site.

I hope it works well. Reading and replying to comments is a big pleasure that keeps me writing.

However, if you want to contact me outside SOL, then my Gmail address is still oyster1950@gmail.com. Please feel free to use this as often as you like.

Where'd he go?

I WAS running a pretty good pace of posting, three or four chapters a week, keeping three stories going for a while.

Life intruded. I have a REAL job to augment the HUGE checks I get monthly for these stories. Anyway, I've been all over my territory doing the magical things they pay me to do. All of that was finished Wednesday.

I should be back on a more frequent posting schedule as soon as my muse gets done with her pouting over my neglect.

Clitorides are out!

I didn't make the top three in any category, but my name is all over the place - in several categories.

Thank you to all who took the time to nominate me and my stories again.
