Richard Armitage in picture tweeted by director of BLACK SKY (yes, this is the official “costume” of a high school teacher. I should know. I’m married to one! Can’t go wrong with a button-down shirt and khakis!)
If you are a Richard Armitage fan, then you probably know he is already working on his next film, Black Sky. It is a “weather film” dealing with tornadoes I believe. Well, here on the Gulf Coast, we are hanging out with Hurricane Issac. We’ve been out of school for two days now, and will be out again tomorrow (it’s actually Wed. now, but 2:15 in the morning). We had one full week with our students and then got 3 days off for Hurricane days, and will have next Monday off for Labor Day. What a way to start the new school year!! It is really messy outside and the wind is blowing fairly strong. My husband, also a teacher, has been glued to the Weather Channel for days now. I got up tonight because I heard the Civil Defense alarm go off in the distance indicating a tornado warning. My three Pomeranians are sawing logs right now, so I think that we may be okay. They are our personal bad weather indicators. Guess I’m just listening out for the “freight train” sound. At least over the summer we cleared out our tornado safety closet in the basement. It was piled chest high with the toys my son had accumulated for the last 11 years. At best, all we could have done is thrown ourselves on top of the pile and hoped for the best. Now, it is basically empty and we will not risk being pelted with Thomas the Tank Engine trains and track. Well, guess I’ll go back to writing. I am trying to finish the last 2-3 chapters of my next book before I have to go back to school on Thursday. My cover for Memphis Heat arrived today via email. It is interesting to say the least. I was thrilled with the cover of One Sizzling Summer. The cover artist for Memphis Heat is new and I will just have to stare at it for a while to get used to it. Hey, it’s a book with my name on the cover. I’m living my dream to be a writer, so I am happy. Hope you all stay safe.
