Hour 21


Minutes: 40 (Other 20 spent on last update, checking in with Dewey and some other readers, making a fresh pot of coffee, letting dang dog in and out, getting dang dog his morning pill and breakfast, and writing a limerick for the last challenge)

Current book: Still reading The Wright 3.

Pages: 33 (The nap really paid off!)

Misc. comments: First of all, I'd really like to know why, after all I did for dang dog over the past day, why he couldn't help keep me lively when I really needed him?!!

Okay, and now for Dewey's latest challenge. We were to write a limerick or haiku about one of the characters from one of the books we read today/tonight/whatever. I couldn't remember exactly what the syllabication is supposed to be for a limerick, but hopefully this is close enough...

Tom Skelton and friends took quite a trip,
Through space and time, they did fly and flip,
Learning much about night,
And things that cause fright,
And in the end, they saved their friend Pip.

(About The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury.)
