We are fast approaching Labor Day in the US. That marks the end of summer in many ways. Students return to the classroom. School buses return to the highways. We go back to only being able to wear jeans on Fridays, and maybe I'll start writing something on Mondays. For now, let's stick with some... Continue Reading →

Welcome, my chuckaboos! I warn you in advance that I’m flying by the seat of my pantser pants even more than usual today. My week has been so full of insomnia and interruptions, it’s no wonder Émeraude is looking like a worry wart.
This week’s random reader things:
Thanks to Dan Antion for letting me use his photos as I am able for this serial.

Last time, in Chapter 1 — Dance we met Jaspe and Amethyst (a purple clockwork spider). Jaspe seemed to see something troubling in the distance, but he wouldn’t admit it. This time you will meet Agate and Blue…

I'm sharing a few pictures that didn't fit anywhere else, so they can be here where there's no subject. Just another empty Monday following a good weekend. I hope you all had a nice break, and I hope you're off to a good start on this week. Thanks for visiting here. I'm sticking with the... Continue Reading →
Part of the Chinese Community Church - close-up of the door. The last day I was in Washington, DC, I had an early meeting in the city. I took the local subway (Metro) into Union Station and walked from there to the meeting site. It was still cool enough to walk the roughly 1.3 mi... Continue Reading →
As much as I subscribe to Ricky Nelson’s theory on what to do if you can’t please everyone, this time, I’d appreciate your input. I’ll give you a tiny (I saw that eye-roll) bit of backstory. Last Thursday, I composed a Doors post while using my iPad on a train. I used the Block Editor,... Continue Reading →
As has been my practice this summer, I will be (mostly) only sharing photos today. I tried using the Block Editor (Guttenberg) to prepare this post like the one I did on Thursday. That train derailed. I'll explain later, especially if I ever figure it out. This is the entrance to the escalator I shared... Continue Reading →
The other Dan posted a gem from Poland.
I’ve been over in Poland for the last few weeks and so far they haven’t kicked me out . Not that they would kick me out . I keep a low profile . I have learned my lesson and I don’t , almost never , talk to strangers . One time I tried to help an old lady carry her suitcase down the stairs at the train station and she screamed bloody murder . Lucky for me there didn’t seem to be any police personnel immediately available . I got several accusing stares as I walked away a little embarrassed , unable to explain in their language my faux paux . Okay , once in awhile I slip up . So sue me .
Last evening Ada and I were sitting at an outdoor table at a tiny coffee shop in the city . We had tried several other places…

I like the contrast of the blue with the red house. Benjamin Thompson was born in Woburn, Massachusetts (MA), in 1753. Last week, as I was driving around Woburn, I noticed that his birthplace is being maintained as a museum. When I see a home in this area of MA that is preserved as a museum,... Continue Reading →
Did you know Teagan started a new serial on Saturday? She did, and you can get on board The Delta Pearl with us and see where this riverboat is going to sail.

A New Serial Begins!
The Delta Pearl book cover created by Teagan R. Geneviene
Welcome, my chuckaboos! If you are new around here, “chuckaboo” is what the Victorians called a dear friend.
Changes abound! Those of you who visited my midweek post already know I’ve changed things. If not, then you see that I’ve redecorated my sanctuary. After many years of the same blog-look, I decided to use the steampunk banner to reflect the new serial.
Another change. In the race between Cornelis Drebbel’s submarine and the Delta Pearl, the riverboat won the voting poll. The new serial starts today!
Some things didn’t change. Wait, there’s more good news. Dan Antion, who illustrated Brother Love, is letting me use his photographs for The Delta Pearl! Although because it is a steampunk story, I will have to use other illustrations as well…
