Had a fairly quiet weekend at home with M. We did have someone come over on Sunday though but with the time change and it being dark as hell by 5:30, she thankfully left at a decent time.
Didn’t get much done writing-wise. I did post a short flash as you know. I am determined this week to update Cadet Ashayam, just don’t know when. I did get two more Holiday flashes done and am half way through another and those are just taking precedence right now, but I will get to Cadet Ashayam.
This week is supposed to be warm and dry, though thankfully, I think, anyway, wind-free. It cools off at night at least.
We’ve already begun to plan for Thanksgiving even though it’s at the end of the month. It’s at our house. We’ll have about seven of us again this year. That means decorating! HA. Those are leaves and pumpkin lights though you can’t really tell.
Anyway, later this month I will indulge in my two Thanksgiving-related movies.
Of course, I have other writing to finish as well, including the AOSJim/Prime Holiday story. Not sure what I will title it yet, but if anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear. Here’s the plot:
After his revival, Jim finds himself mostly alone in the hospital. The crew has been given leave, and with it being holiday time, they’ve all dispersed since Jim will make a full recovery. Into this come Spock Prime. He reveals that he knew of Jim’s “death” due to their T’hy’la bond. When Bones wants to go to Georgia for the holidays to see his daughter, Prime volunteers to watch over Jim during his absence, and Jim moves into an apartment with Prime. Jim begins to add bits of the holidays into their lives and an indulgent Prime allows it and eventually succumbs to the adorable charms of the season and his young T’hy’la.
Title ideas? I’d like something merry/holiday sounding.
Hope everyone has a great week.

Oh, I was just gonna call it “Who Wouldn’t?”
Not very holiday-ish.
Whatever you end up calling it, I can’t wait to read it. Need a “BINO”? (That’s beta in name only).
What are your 2 fave Thanksgiving movies again?
Pretty decs. I’ve never decorated for Thanksgiving except a place setting. I don’t know why. I guess probably because it was never at my house. And that’s ok. My cooking skills are known far and wide.
They put a sign on the fence saying, “Forget the dog. Beware the cook.”
I had an idea for the fall guys thing. Could you just title it “…continued” so we oldies can remember it’s not a stand-alone and it doesn’t have a real title yet?
I think it should be like the old Lost in Space, where the narrator started every week with, “Last time, blah blah our stranded family….blah blah” (those weren’t the exact words except it ALWAYS started with “Last time…” I think the narrator was the Robot’s voice, right?
Speaking of which, my greatest Christmas present this year will be the release of Season 2 of the new Lost In Space on December 24. I hope my family understands I’m busy that day and can’t visit! haha
Well, happy week to ya, and no more fires.

You’re a big help. Not.! HA HA 😀
Planes Trains and Automobiles. Sure it’s a little stupid funny but at the end of the day it’s really a sweet movie about a guy who had nowhere to go for Thanksgiving. And it’s rare to see Steve Martin play the more serious, less funny side.
Home for the Holidays. For me it’s about three characters that aren’t even the main character (Holly Hunter). It’s her parents and her brother (Robert Downey JR). Charles Durning is her father and he’s my favorite character actor. I just love him in everything and I love him in this. And Anne Bancroft as his wife, too. Completely dysfunctional family.

Tenderness? From the quote “what is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.”

I had a comment written here earlier today and apparently never hit that pesky post comment button. Sigh! When I opened my email for a fleeting second I saw my comment before it disappeared from my phone’s screen! Very strange!
I like your Fall decorations. I really don’t decorate for Thanksgiving. I do Halloween and then Christmas. This past weekend we went out to Home Depot and bought some outdoor Christmas decorations for the house.
I really can’t think of a title for your fiction…. All I Want for Christmas is You? Idk Looking forward to reading it however.
Hope your weather is going to improve. At least there is no wind. Let’s hope everyone is safe from the horrible fires out there.
This time I’ll hit the post comment button! ❤

Nah, I’m already using All I Want for Christmas for a TOS Christmas flash and don’t want to repeat any titles. Thx though!

Thank you. Retirement leaves lots of time to run through lyrics! I’m usually knee deep in rehearsing a lot of these songs at this time of year….for decades!
