    Amazing how that works, isn’t it? Like somebody up there is watching over you, and they’re not going to cut you any slack… but when the crunch time really hits, THEN you get the much-needed work.

    I’m not sure about that for myself, just yet Pat!

  5. amba12 said,

    Pat: maybe because it keeps you abjectly grateful??

  6. Ron said,

    Amba: We are the subject of this abjection!

  7. Ron said,

    oops, “subjects”

    Great! Is it natural history work? There’s a young buck staring at me through the kitchen windows, ruminating—I’m watching the swallowing/regurgitating action going up and down, up and down his throat. Never really saw that before.

    Congrats! May your cup runneth over for as long as you need it to!

    A — that reminds me of the time I was just floating in the water in Florida (Gulf of Mexico), and a tern dived near me — they drop like a stone in pursuit of small fish — then came up out of the water, flying, and shook itself like a dog while on the wing. I guess it’s the department of things in nature you never saw before. Yes, it is science copyediting.

    reader — thank you kindly.

    I hope it’s contagious.

    Science! Great! Glad things have taken a tern for the better. (Bwah ha ha!)

    Glad to hear it (and that the big guy is feeling better). That photo cracked me up – almost Chaplinesque.

    Was that bird diving for sausage?

    Cuz that would be a tern for the wurst.

    You’re prob’ly to blame for leaving no tern unstoned, too!
