No, I haven't shot off a gun yet. UD has been on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. She has put her bed as close as possible to her balcony overlooking the Atlantic so that she can fall asleep to the sound of waves.
Right now (7 AM), she has closed the balcony curtains to keep the big sun out of the room so she can blog. An hour ago, she stood on her balcony staring at a white, gray, blue, purple, black, yellow, and orange sunrise.
On the beach, she reads what she always reads during her Rehoboth July: Albert Camus, Lyrical and Critical Essays. So beautifully written you forget it's a translation, and radiant throughout with the North African sun.
UD has been hanging out with her sisters here (much Scrabble playing); after they leave, Mr. UD arrives.
This post marks UD's return to blogging. In the next few days, she'll post some more thoughts about guns, as she makes plans to attend a gun show on her return to 'thesda, and to go to a range. She thanks her readers for their patience as she ends her vacation from blogging.
