Book Report: Finished my rough draft on Homeland Security Part 2. Got in the mood to write and spent a lot of hours at the computer. Now I'm starting at Chapter One and adding a lot of new material to what I had written. Hope to be finished with my part of the process by Mid August and then I'll hand it off to Ava for editing. Susan is still editing "The Sand Box Wars", 3rd book in the Apache Snow Trilogy . Ava just finished editing my book, "Geronimo" and now working on the next book in the Arizona Ranger series, "Indian Wars". Once that one is done I'll ship them off to my publisher. The next book in the series, which is half-way written, is "Attack on Fort Bowie", followed by "The Gunfighters". I really enjoy working on westerns, must be from reading all those Louie L'Amour and Max Brand books.

That's it for the news.
Saw footage on the internet of some freakish new monster on bottom of the sea consuming a shark. Didn't say how big shark or the other critter was. But it can make you wonder what all our radiation is doing to the under the sea creatures. Japan has been leaking for a long time and I've seen photos of some of the really ugly salmon they've fished up. Anyone remember Godzilla movies?
Of course I never imagined a 262 pound carp, or a 350 grouper either. Waiting to see what the biggest Silver Salmon is this year for the Seward August Silver Salmon Derby. We're also seeing a whole lot of whales dying on our West Coast. Mona and I saw one of those ourselves.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. God Bless and I hope your prayers are answered favorably. BILL
