Hubby has lost nearly a 100 pounds and is holding his weight down. I have at least 30 more to go, but it's slower going for women. Even the dog has lost weight, which is good since the vet won't do the knee surgery she needs unless she's at optimum weight.

Looking forward to reading your newest work when you're ready.  Smiley

Good for you, Deb! And your hubby! Trying to lose weight sucks, I'm in the same boat. At six feet and with my frame, I can handle up to about 200 lbs. When I got on the Doc's scale and tipped it to 255, I knew I had to do something before it got too far out of control. Short term plan, cut the Coke, the extra extra in the coffee, double burgers, late night snacks, i.e. Klondike Bars. I dropped 15 lbs just by doing that. My first goal is to get down to 225, i figure if I take things in steps, I won't get discouraged as easy.

Amelia, Ed, your new story idea sounds cool! Looking forward to reading it. I need to get back to my time travel story, the one I started over a year ago. I've been busy with other things, as of late. In March, I joined the Astronomical Society of Rhode Island, better known as The Skyscrapers, and I've been writing for the newsletter. http://www.theskyscrapers.org/matt-white?type=950112 Not much there yet, but I just finished an article about my life experience as an amateur astronomer. It should be published in the newsletter (and the website) next month.

Denise, now that you have your own space (isn't that so freeing) I look forward to reading some more of your work. I trust you are settled nicely in your new place.

June is always a busy time of year for me. The third weekend is when the ARRL Field Day is held and our informal radio group take that event very seriously. (We start planning for next year the week after the event.) A friend of mine once called it "organized insanity" a term that fits quite well.

Matt

We used the Eat this not that series of books to lose weight. I recommend Skinny Cow when you're in the mood for ice cream. However, yesterday husband brought home Ben and Jerry Boston Cream Pie flavor ice cream and Annie organic pretzels with sea salt. We were celebrating his improving health. It may be temporary but we'll make the most of it.
Slash is a character in our story, and Alec is not fond of him ... Angry    The Commander runs into his darling ex in this too. Literally running into her with the Shado car is what Alec prefers, but sadly no. Not in this story anyway.  Cheesy
So I should have five or six works coming up. No eta at the moment.
Off to go have Greek yogurt from the fridge and then  Ed and I need to see the librarian in her private office.  Shocked

We're having an anniversary? (clink of champagne glasses)
Department of off topic:
I'm considering having a new Ed Bishop Fans yahoo group. The more I think about what was allowed, the more I feel It's necessary. Had Ed Bishop been alive, he would have made short work of them. additionally Deborah, there's a Ed Bishop Appreciation Society on Facebook I belong to, and I don't think it was talked about anywhere.
My story is on hold for now, been trying to ground hubby, he had a rough pain day. We got approved for a credit card so a new laptop looms, but windows 8 sounds like a pain to learn.
Paolo sent me a bunch of Bishop photos, poor hubby was downloading all day Cheesy
