Quick note

I am deep in the country house/dog sitting for some friends, armed only with my kindle and a few books.  One of these days I’ll get a laptop, but until Monday evening I am PC less. Typing is laborious on a little tablet pad! Alexa refuses to take dictation…what a disgrace she is to helpful AIs everywhere. I have been reading, and am 700 pages in to a novel that is 1000+ pages. Two reviews are ready to roll on Monday. Until then, happy reading..!

    this would be a nice time of year to revisit the southwest… just a suggestion… at any rate, i really hope the Stephen manse sustains no damage… good luck…

    The best of luck with that one and here's hoping that the storms passes you by! Hope that your hatches are FULLY battened….

  3. Stephen says:

    That it would…I'm figuring on a spring trip if I'm not blown away on Monday, though.

  4. Stephen says:

    Thanks! There's two more out there just now, but so far Jose and Katia don't seem to have the US on their mind.

    sounds like fun, maybe… or not?

  8. Stephen says:

    Definitely fun! I can see the stars at night. The coyotes are louder, though..

    Actually, that sounds pretty great – some dedicated reading time away from a computer. And at 700 pages, sounds like it's working. 🙂 Happy weekend!

    Enjoy your time away from a PC and happy reading!

    I am so jealous! What a dream that sounds like. Enjoy!

    A weekend with nothing to do but read………………. Bliss – except for the lack of Internet access and MMO's……. [lol]

    Just finished it this morning . 😀

  14. Stephen says:

    Well, my kindle allows me to check email and such. Still, my only major distraction has been the new cosmos.

  15. Stephen says:

    It's been a nice break — yesterday I took a country walk down to a store for lunch. Missed the rain by a half hour!

  16. Mudpuddle says:

    “the new cosmos”?? did i miss something? a transsolar dislocation or some such?

  17. Stephen says:

    Hah! No, Neil deGrades Tyson did an updated version of Carl Sagan's Cosmos.

  18. Sarah says:

    That's awesome. I am all for nice breaks like that where it is easy to detach from the world.
