June Called -- Pauline's in the Hospital (Again!)


In the middle of writing about Carol (and her funeral), June called. I haven't talked to her since last week, as she's been in Condon.

While there, they visited Rose (Dorothy's friend) -- and Pauline got bit by the dog. It's a long story, but basically Rose's sister died recently -- and the dog was her sister's pet. The poor animal is still grieving, and when Rose insisted that Pauline sit in the sister's chair, the dog kept circling round her! Rose suggested that the dog was accustomed to being petted by anyone in that chair, pretty much forcing Pauline to reach out and pet the dog. So, naturally, the dog reacted...

Thankfully, nobody wanted to follow up on Rose's suggestion to have the poor dog put down as a result of the bite! But the situation did go from bad to worse...

June and Jim's church was the one I mentioned before -- the church I was brought up in. It's pretty interesting, seeing as they're both now pillars of that same church! They didn't belong back when I attended. But now and then I'll go to something there -- and everyone there knows me. How the world turns! Does anybody really believe it's a total coincidence that Marilyn and I ended up living right next door to June and Jim -- and becoming close friends with them? And that we'd later discover we had the same church in common -- even if it was at different points in time?

Okay, this time I mean it! I'm off to write on my NaNo novel...

But I need to help out Michael michaelkillan at some point today! He shouldn't be carrying the burden of the new community alone, with all the other maintainers tied up. (sigh) I'll get to it. I've got an 'lj-cut tag hint' I'm dying to share there! (smile) I do love the idea of this community and can't wait to get it far enough along (ready to go, that is) that we can begin the pimping process! (grin)

More later...

But I need to get serious over the weekend... (smile) Knock off several thousand words. It's funny, but I feel absolutely no pressure about NaNo. Should I? Hm.
