Irish Rose drops in . . . .

      I was under the impression that once I finished the Mass Edit project, I'd have a lot more time to write for the blog.  Somehow (obviously) it hasn't turned out that way and I'm not quite sure why.  Canning season could have something to do with it I suppose.  :)  The good news is that Sharpi has read through Part Five to make sure the new bits mesh well with the old (I was encouraged when there were only two highlighted bits that needed fixing) and dad and I have talked about when to launch the next evaluation phase.  We've found a local printer who will give me a better rate per page than our local library (yay!).  So once we decide just how many copies we're going to hand out for this evaluation we should be just about set.  The printer said once I get the manuscript to them it will only be a couple days before I get the hard copies back.  It is a bit nerve-wracking to think about this story - which has been pretty much family contained since day one - being let loose into the big, wide world . . . . . To borrow a quote from Fiddler on the Roof: "But on the other hand . . . ." its just a tiny bit exciting, too. 

Ah . . . . have to love technology.  Here I am, sharing my thoughts with friends who I'm sure have better things to do, and my laptop battery is telling me to hurry up and finish.  (Who serves who here??)
Small heads-up before it dies - we girls are getting ready for one last adventure to celebrate summer, and we're going sans technology.  So don't be surprised it it feels like we dropped out of the blog world for a while, because we are.  :)  We'll have stories and photos when we come back.  And in the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the extra lovely days God has been giving us.  :)
