SO WITH THE BOOK NOT QUITE DONE, BUT UNDER CONTROL, I took the afternoon off and went out to take pictures — not far, just up around Coalfield, Oliver Springs, and Petros. I haven’t had time to work with the pictures much, but I liked this sign advertising cheese stix of an unusual variety.

I also finally got around to watching one of the Firefly episodes on DVD. I can see why the series fans are so rabid. Serenity did okay, but not great, in spite of the blogosphere boost the first week. I’m surprised, but then again, it’s kind of like the series — better than the size of its audience would suggest. Too bad.

Sorry bloggging’s been a bit light, and email response worse than usual, these past few weeks. I’ve been bumping up against my limits. Things should get back to normal over the next little while.
