PJ Day

In anticipation of another trip to Florida, today is a day for housecleaning and couches.

I curl up with the second of the D’Artagnan romances, which I hope ends as well as the first, in which I discovered a villain of the highest order – Milady.

Great villains make great heroes, and without her Satanic presence, D’Artagnan and his companions would be nothing more than generic Dumas swashbucklers.  Milady elevates the whole thing, even beyond Richelieu.  I can only hope that Twenty Years After provides the same gravitas and breath-holding ending.

Until then, it’s packing and video games, books and scrawlings.

And soon, Cocoa Beach.
