A Common Goldeneye duck and her ducklings out for a late morning swim.
I'm still editing A Fly on the Wall. I had a particularly sticky problem in chapter eight that took a while to sort out. Or, to make the photo relevant, I had trouble getting all my ducks in a row. I eventually sorted it out. The rest of the corrections in logic should be easier. # Here's a freshly edited passage: "Brelyan turned on his stomach and buried his face in the pillow. What was he missing?" # Our current bedtime story is from The Complete Tales of Nikolai Gogol, Vol 1. (University of Chicago Press, 1985) We decided to read Gogol after my husband found a reference to him in one of my cookbooks. Gogol's Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka sounded like our kind of stories. A quick internet search sealed it. In the second picture Gogol looks quite a bit like my husband. I ordered both volumes and offered them as my husband's birthday present.
Here are two sentences, and two extras from The Fair at Sorochintsy: # " ' Why it looks like two men: one on top, the other under. Which of them is the devil I can't make out yet!' 'Why, who is on top?' 'A woman!' 'Oh, well, then that's the devil!' " # Thanks for being here. For more or to get in on the fun, please see the Women of Mystery.
