At least for a while. My paycheck job took me to North Idaho for a few days. During this time, I missed some of your posts. This happens from time to time and there isn't much I can really do about it.
There is a trick I pull, and it might be interesting to my fellow bloggers. I surf into my stats and find the one about my most frequent commenters. I can click on them and go directly to their blogs. The point is that bloggers enjoy interaction, and I try to never miss those who interact the most. I may not be unique here, and it pays to interact on the blogs you enjoy. Say hi, leave a comment, it matters.
I'll get back in the swing for a few days, then we're taking a real vacation to the coast. I'll keep in touch, but won't give up family time or events either.
We saw several large forest fires on our trip. I'm always the driver, so I don't have any photos for you. Everyone else snapped a few. There is one East of Grangeville that looks like a volcano on top of the mountains. All of Idaho is covered in smoke, and visibility is limited.
I have company coming in today, so this post is going to be short. I need to accomplish a few promotional things before they arrive. I'm working on September and even October events, but it all happens in August.
Please visit Ali Isaac's blog today. She's running something new called Friday Fantastic Flash and asking for participants. I participated, and you should too. When I checked my stats this morning, I noticed something funny. My re-blog of Ali's site was my 666th post. Had I known that I would have prepared something paranormal, but my micro fiction is a bit of science fiction fun.
To come full circle, leave a comment at Ali's site. She participates in her comments too, and I'm checking regularly to answer any comments I might get.
