We’ve just ben so busy I haven’t had a lot of time to read, what with the landscaping work, Labor Day activities, our heat wave and so on, reading took a low priority this last week or two. I’ve done some reading, but nothing for a Forgotten Book, just a little progress on some things already partially read: Spoon River Anthology, Smith and Other Events, The Archie Goodwin Files, and a library book, Big Roads. Hopefully by next week I will have finished the Sax Rohmer novel I’m working on.

The big news here today is tear down. A crew is coming this morning to tear down our two story deck, in preparation to replacing the wobbly, rotting structure with a fine new sturdy beautiful one. Pictures later, meanwhile I need to get out my ear plugs.

    You’re writing a Sax Rohmer novel?


  2. Richard says:

    Yep, it’s titled The Glistening Blades of Fu Manchu and is about a secret army of zombies he has created in a hidden underground laboratory in Canton. Each zombie has a machete grafted onto one arm. The evil genius’s plan is to slice his way to world domination…

    Right. Good one, Jeff. No, I’m reading THE BAT FLIES LOW at the moment, or will get back to doing that later in the day.

  3. I tell you I love having a deck. we just had some work done on ours too.

    Well the old one is almost gone, just the footings remain. I’ll go out and take a couple of pictures (do they still call them snapshots? Is “snapshots” a film only term? If so, why?) and do a before and during post.

  5. Your home improvements are impressive! We’re considering replacing the original counter in our kitchen. But if we do that, we need to replace the sink and faucet, too. One thing leads to another…

    That’s how our kitchen remodel in the last house started, we wanted to get rid of the old, white tile, and the sink was tired, so decided to get granite, and why not new lower cabinets too, and then the uppers, and the lighting was improved… turned out to be a gut job. Lovely when done, though! Then we sold the place, but that kitchen sold it for us.
