I spent all my midmorning and early afternoon hours slogging through Castle Walls. I think I caught all the repeated words, nit picky capitals, etc. I now have to read through it again before sending it back to my editor. Don’t let anybody fool you – getting the story down on the computer or on paper is tough, but reading and rereading your tale a dozen times before publication is a pain!

And then there's the heat wave that's acing my buddy, Nicosian. I'm quite a distance from her but it's just as bad here. UGH. When it's cold, my joints don't like to work because of arthritis. When it's hot, my feet like to swell up so I hobble everywhere. Can't win for losing, man!

Anyhoo, wanted to check in and let folks know I'm still here.
