We finally managed to get down to Tricities (Pasco, Kennewick, Richland) on the Columbia and visit Patty, who breeds (besides books) show horses. She has 8 babies. And they’re wonderful. Hand-tamed, so they’re willing to be petted, if a little shy.

And so tempting I walked more than I should on a newly PT’d leg, and gave myself problems which meant I didn’t get to go to Spocon this weekend.

Mostly we’re just writing and prepping the house (basement) for the next round of remodeling. Looking forward to getting Scott back.

We promised to have this next Alliance book ready by November, and we’re trucking. By turns.

Anyway, that’s what we’re doing.

Weather was brutally hot during the horse adventure, but has turned off chill and rainy, unusual for August in the PNW.

Hanneke, hearing that Amsterdam had a tornado, of all things! Hope all is well with you.
