Cute Critter #1
Because I'm easily amused and have nothing of substance to say right now, and because I owe my readers a cute critter shot after missing the darling ducklings, here's a canary we saw at PetSmart yesterday. There were also gerbils nestled in their food bowls, but they didn't stay there long enough for me to snap their picture.
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
