Dear Charlie:

Man! Having your parents' old gas grill is a wonderful thing! I go to the local butcher once or twice a year and buy a package of various steaks because I love to grill so much. Somehow, it always turns out right. Even if I get it a little too done -- I'm a medium-rare woman *smirk* -- it's still good.

So, I grilled up some sirloins, steamed some fresh mushrooms in butter and garlic in a foil packet, and simmered some herbed potatoes for supper tonight (and lunch and dinner tomorrow *grin*). Man, it was great! Meat is good. Potatoes are good. Meat and potatoes?

Unbeatable combination.

And I didn't get them too done, either. *big grin* Mmmm...juicy....

I got a lot of writing done today, but it wasn't on The Last Mates. Dammit. I wrote 20+ pages, totally in the zone, on a story that might end up being somewhere between novella- and novel-length. Dammit! I'm such a 'tard. *grin* I have no discipline. At least I can admit it.

I gotta get this out of my head, though. It's been diggin' around back there for a couple of weeks now, and it makes other stuff not make sense. I hate that. So, I'll get this out, then I'll get back to work.


I will. *sheepish*

What fabulous idea is this? One you've told me about? Hmmm, inquiring minds want to KNOW!

Nope. I hadn't told anyone about it because I hoped it would just sit back nicely and quit bothering me. But, like most good ideas, it refuses.

Hell, it jumped up and did the fandango.

Once I get the edge off it, I'll get back to what I SHOULD be doing, and the snippet will sit safely in my hard drive (and on my backup disk *grin*) until I come back to it. Could be a while. Could be never.

You just never know with some of these ideas.

But it's chugging along like a beauty. I'm on pg. 35, just today. Bizarro, ne?

That's great, Molly. It's always great to get an idea that just grabs you and won't let go! Good luck with it!

OH Molly! You would post about meat and potatoes and shrooms woman! How did you know that is like my favorite meal? OMG, there is nothing like a good medium rare steak with shrooms. My mouth is watering and that is not a good thing as half my body is numb from this damn root canal. I think I'm going to go make me some potato soup cause I know this sucker is going to hurt later, they always do, darn dentists.

And now I am poor.
Sing me a song Molly, I need something to focus on beside the pain in my head!
Hugs sweets!
And enjoy that steak for me!
