Hey all–I moved to a new house at the beginning of this month and missed a few items along the way because my world, stuff and brain was in boxes. I did a guest blog at The Qwillery on June 6th entitled: “Romulus Buckle, Steampunk and the Female Swashbuckler,” and it is one of my favorite blogs so far. Thank you, Sally and The Qwillery!

The fire vehicles in the above photo were not engaged yet–they had stopped to strategize over a map spread out on a truck hood before heading up into the hills. It is supposed to be a bad fire season this year. Stay safe, firefighters–we are proud of you.
