Happy Fourth of July!

From Birdie, Jinx, and me

Summertime is busy for many people.  I know it’s hard to keep up with serials. So, I’m even more grateful that you read Brother Love.  

In the USA, lots of folks will be taking time off and/or vacationing before, during, and after the Independence Day holiday.  (I know, from having been a kid with a birthday during that time, how scarce people are.)  I had not planned to, but I’m taking a break this weekend.

Speaking of that, many happy returns to my birthday sibling, Christoph Fischer!  It’s almost our day.

Next weekend I’ll be back with more photos from Dan Antion of No Facilities fame, as well as Brother Love, Chapter 10 — A Cut.

To tide you over, here’s a teaser from the next chapter.  If you want to play a guessing game, figure out who left (an longer version of) magnolia leaves as a “thing.”

Teaser for Chapter 10 — A Cut

Wind through the magnolia leaves made a ghostly sound outside.  Insects of all sorts flew around in the top of the tent.  A trio of crows had managed to get inside.  Unnoticed by the humans below, they sat on the topmost trusses, feasting on the bugs.

The crows weren’t interested in the magpie, and Jinx paid them no mind as he roosted on the lowest of the tent’s trusses, closest to the action on the ground.

The woman with glittering balls dangling from her ears started screaming.

“My baby!  My baby!  Somebody, help my baby!” she wailed, and then flopped down on the floor.

Jinx leaned as far forward as he could.  He slipped, but he unfurled his wings and dug his claws into the beam.

“I meant to do that,” he whistled.

He glanced up at the three crows.  They hadn’t noticed.
