I was in Florida on business August 9th-10th. Charley pays a visit right after I leave. Another business trip to Florida August 31st-Sept. 2nd. Frances threatens immediately after. Maybe I need to stay out of Florida during hurricane season.
What is the best ‘internet’ forum for online posting/publishing? (yes, I know LiveJournal is one, but I’m curious to see if there are “class” sites specializing in poetry/prose/etc.) DeviantART comes to mind. I know to stay away from ‘scams’ like the International Society of Poetry and that ilk.
At age 74 my mother has obtained a dog. She hadn’t lived with a dog since the 1970’s when dad was still alive and her kids were living at home. She thought it was cute when she could hold it in her hands, but now as it grows and turns into a terrorizing puppy, she is having second thoughts. I feel sorry for the dog. It took years for me to learn the basics of dog ownership. We own five setters all born and raised in this house. I would rather relive my experiences of breeding, whelping and raising our own litters (the largest was 14 puppies) than try to train and socialize the one pup mom now has.
Off to the used bookstore and library looking for mental stimulation.
