The News

Good news:  I finished that book I've been writing for over 3 years.  I finished it this morning.
Bad news:  Soon it will go to the editor and she'll say to revise it more, but let's just focus on the good news right now.
More Good news:  We're going to dinner with #1 Son tonight.
Bad news:  He's going back to New Orleans tomorrow. Rats.
Good news:  This week is Banned Book Week.  I like talking about Banned Book Week with the Thirdlanders.
Bad news:  People ban books.  Think it through, Book Banners.
Good news:  I took this excellent photo of a hawk this morning.
Bad news:  I'm not sure what kind of hawk it is, but I think it's a broad winged hawk.  I'm bad at hawk identification.

I like all of your good news and don't like any of your bad news, except I think you're right about the hawk.

Congratulations!!

The laws of physics prove that good news, especially, but not limited to book-finishing news, beats bad news.

That hawk photo is fantastic as is all the other good news. But, really, congratulations on the book. I hope you have been doing the book dance all over your home. No one will ever ban your book. Or they will have to answer to me and many others.
