Scrabulous

Things are going to be a little hectic around here the next two weeks as Dawn and Rich’s babysitter is off to Hawaii for two weeks. That means I’ll have Lael full time for half of the next two weeks, and I’m not going to waste that time ignoring her.

We went to the Point Defiance Zoo today in what turned out to be pretty much a driving rain storm. Luckily we spent most of the time inside the Aquarium and there’s not much rain there. The good thing was we had the zoo almost to ourselves, including the lunch room and the carousel.

I’d fully intended to come away with some photos, but it was so dark and so wet that I didn’t even take my camera.

And, of course, I didn’t have enough time to read the next section of Nemerov’s poems, so that will have to wait until tomorrow.

I have found time to play Scrabulous on Facebook, a story in itself. I’ve avoided sites like Facebook for quite awhile since I prefer reading blogs to texting people.

But when Theresa Williams sent me an invitation and she hadn’t been posting nearly as much at her site, I decided to join. Then Will Humes of One Thing I Know wrote an entry inviting anyone who belonged to Facebook to join him in a game of Scrabulous, and I was hooked. I used to love Scrabble, but couldn’t always find the time to sit down an play a game. Online you can make a play whenever you have time, and though I’m sure I’ve forgotten some great moves when I had to wait until the next day for my move, I love the convenience of playing online.

In fact, I’d love to have several games going. So, I’d invite any of my readers who belong to Facebook to join in by initiating a new game with me.

What do you think?
