The Day – 7-31-20
The first half of yesterday ended up being pretty busy. Mostly follow up doctor stuff from the incident I mentioned last week.The whole bit took almost four hours between driving, waiting, and picking up medicine. I did have a really nice lunch at my favorite local restaurant. I got it to go and found a shady spot to park the car making it sort like a picnic. The weather was super nice which made the drive pleasant. That said, it seemed like everywhere I went had road work going on. I guess they’re trying to get everything done before the warm weather ends. Since August has arrived, they can probably see the clock winding down.
Anyway, by the time I got home, I was beat. Still managed 3 pages, but that was it.
Vampire Hunter D: The Rose Princess Review
As promised, I finished the book lat night. I’m a huge fan of the series and this installment didn’t disappoint. It finds D arriving in a little town under the rule of a female vampire and her four guardian knights. He’s been hired to kill the vampire but has to go through the knights to do it. Not to mention plenty of the villagers don’t want her killed since her advanced technology increases the yield of their fields making the village rich for the area. Of course there’s also a tough, pretty girl that falls for him to no avail.
I won’t spoil the ending, though if you’ve read a few of these books you can probably guess how it goes. This series reminds me of the old westerns with D as the honorable gunslinger that rides in, kills the bad guys, and rides off. He also has a little Jack Reacher in him.
Finally a preorder update. The Great Northern War is up to 976. I think we’re for sure going to break a thousand in the next few days. Thanks everyone for your support.
Talk to you tomorrow.
