Random Posts

This is an experiment to see if I can send a "clean" post by email using Times Roman type.  My other email posts, sent with the default arial font used by AOL, adds masses of coding to the message, making it practically unreadable, at least on my computer.  There has to be a way to do better!
 
If you've missed my posts over the last few days, it's because I've been away from home, attending a daylily convention.  This was the meeting for Region 13 of The American Hemerocallis Society which includes Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas.  Held in Baton Rouge this year, it featured seven or eight display gardens plus a botanical garden--also lots of food, friends and fun.  As you might guess, I came home with lots of new daylilies; I never can resist a sale plant or a good auction!  Today was spent putting these new plants in the ground, plus bedding out a couple of dozen of the seedlings from hybridizing crosses made last year.  No, I'm not a pro at this, don't sell them.  I'm just a "dabber" who likes seeing what the "babies" will look like when they bloom a couple of years after the crosses are made.  And if you thought I probably had a gardener for tasks like this, no indeed.  Gardening is a favorite hobby of mine--and as close as I come to real exercise.  It's hot and dry here, though, and I was really, really hoping that it would rain on the new plantings.  So far, no such luck.
 
Tomorrow, I'll be back in my office, doing a fast scan of the manuscript for Rogue's Salute before printing it out and shipping it to my editor.  Then it will be time to tackle all the things that have gone undone these past few weeks in the last push toward finishing the book.  Or who knows?  I might decide writing is more fun and a lot less work!

Eureka! Much better! A clean post at last. I'm so glad to know how to make this happen, particularly since email seems the only way at present for me to change the subject line for posts.

Thanks, Sue. So far this morning, I've written a contribution to the Romance Design Newsletter that will go out via email and printed 100 pages of the manuscript--oh, and answered all the email that backed up while I was away. I feel so productive!
