What a GREAT golf holiday weekend!
Oh! Was it Thanksgiving? We hardly noticed.
The weather in central Texas was simply PERFECT for golf. Temps in the mid 70s, low humidity, winds at 10-20, and clear skies. Well, today (Sunday) we had a few clouds; but no threat of rain.
We played 36 holes on Thursday, 27 holes on Friday, 36 holes on Saturday, and 18 holes today on our way home.
(Pictures soon – maybe tomorrow.)
Then, guess what was waiting for me when we got home. No, don’t guess; you’d never get it right in a million years.
I found in our mailbox a SASE (you know what that is, right? You DON’T?? It’s a Self Addressed, Stamped Envelope. Some purists insist that it be referred to as an SASE, as in “an Ess, Ay, Ess, Eee.” But I prefer to refer to it as “a Sassy.”) It was from a literary agency I’d queried about representing my novel.
No, it didn’t contain an offer to represent me. Nor did it contain a request that I send the agent additional sample chapters or the entire manuscript. No, it just contained a simple blue card that said although they appreciated my kind inquiry, they regretted to say that my project was not right for their list.
And that’s fine. Standard fare, in fact.
What made me laugh was that I’d sent in that query on March 17, 2006. And their response was postmarked November 20, 2006.
I guess I should be happy that it came in the same calendar year, right?
