My wonderful sister took me out to the Botanic Gardens last week and handed me her spare DSLR camera. This caused me no end of delight. I think my smartphone camera is wonderful, but there are some things it just can't do. Chief among these (in my opinion) is bird photography.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled fiction tonight because real life just threw yet another curve ball… at my head. I've been out of the house since seven a.m., and got in the door at 11:15 p.m. tonight. I need to finish proofing the part which would have posted today.

Today's post will go up with a date correction as the second post with this date stamp, so please be patient. I hope that events here will smooth out to something resembling normal by Monday.

The emphasis is on the word “hope,” as none of this is predictable or quantifiable. Sorry for the delay!

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

Today is sunny and mild.  I went out and picked a few blackberries.  My partner Doug mowed grass, and I walked around to see where it was done. 

EDIT 7/25/17: We went out and picked up a pile of grass.  Then I did some weeding in the septic garden.

Defending Their Own

part 3 of 6
word count (story only): 1376


:: Part of the Polychrome Heroics universe, and the Mercedes subset, while taking the “Road Trip” in an entirely new direction. ::


Pay Special Attention: People who have been profiting from human trafficking have parts of their reality (and sometimes their bodies) folded into several sharp points which may not match any previously known 'safe' configuration. ::




Joshua closed his eyes as he drew in a deep breath. He made his way to Boneshaker, just as she scraped the last bits of gelato out of the paper carton. “Good timing he mused, trying for a friendly tone that slid straight to 'concerned' instead. He glanced toward the spoon gripped tightly in Boneshaker's right hand, and then at the fine, quivering motion of her resting left hand. A glance at Orris, however, only earned him a tiny nod in return.

“Not many people know this,” Joshua began, leaning hipshot against the edge of the table, “but one of a training officer's jobs is to get a rookie, or sometimes a trainee, through an incident that would make any other person say that they never, ever want to experience that again.”

“Like what?” Boneshaker whispered, her voice catching.
