I edited the lone outstanding assignment and sent it and my June invoice off to my one and only client, so for now, "the plate" is clear.

I then set about scanning old LJ Idol posts for fiction items that, in retrospect, don't cause me to think "What was I thinking of?" and have found ten items so far, which "weigh in" at very nearly 17,000 words, which is a little less than half the size of the translation of 'Keep Forever' that I did for Feht a few years back.

I figure I ought to be able to find enough additional items to break 20K words, whereupon I will feel sorely tempted to wrap them up into something salable and offer it to the world.

Over the past couple of weeks, arrangements had been made for Our Little Group™ to meet at a place called The Lighthouse in Kemah for the Fourth. I personally had my doubts as to the wisdom of such plans, as Kemah tends to be a pretty popular place on ordinary weekends; what kind of popularity it might attract on a national holiday that involves fireworks I could only imagine.

We left the house at 6:30 pm to meet the group at 7:30 or so. Normally, the trip to Kemah takes about 10-12 minutes, and Google Maps estimated about 25 minutes given the traffic conditions at the time. At 7:30 pm, we were still in line to turn left into the restaurant area in Kemah when the police showed up and started setting up roadblocks. It was okay to leave, but entry was being severely discouraged.

We ended up going to the Villa Capri. Dinner was good. I had a martini, the first for many moons. I also spied George Abbey, a former Director of JSC, and wished him a Happy Fourth.

All in all, a pleasant evening,.
