slowly revising "The Fishing Trip"

Crawled through the first five pages today at Peets. Daryn needs to be more active, so that carries through the entire story and it is tough going. While driving home afterwards, I realized that I want to take a scene and move it up (as part of Daryn being active) and that will be a chunk of work.

I know now that the decision is to stay as opposed to going with the old man, but I'm not yet at the point where I can show the decision being made or the turning point. The ending is still in flux. I'll get as far as I can before sending it to SacSpec for next week's meeting.

Puzzles Wed May 2

Jumble = 1:28 (What happened when the thieves ran into the cornfield?)
Word Sleuth = 3:24 (2007 Grammy Winners)
NEA Crossword = 5:16 (5-02-07)
NY Times Crossword = 9:57 (No. 0321)

Considering that while I was doing the puzzles I was talking on the phone to C, getting E to go take her shower, and answering A's continual stream of questions, I think the puzzles went pretty well. I got stuck in the lower left of NY Times Crossword for a while and I'm not sure I got it all right.
