Long day. Up late.

Day started hot and sunny, ended up hot and overcast. Even so, there's a bit of fall in the air and I look forward to its coming.

Went out to fetch the paper this morning, and found my new, replacement fly rod waiting for me on the front porch! Happy days. The rig is remarkably close in look and feel to the original I bought thirty-some years ago, and I'm looking forward to trying it out. Maybe this weekend if things go well.

Got in some good work on a manuscript this afternoon, then over to the gym. Have a feeling this will be an early-to-bed evening.
