8 Sentence Sunday

I have a moment on the family vacation to add a 8 sentence Dieselpunk snippet. 


Dear Mother and Father,

The weather has been lovely. The evenings are cool and there hasn’t been a cloud threatening our daytime activities with rain. You’ld be interested to know that my daytime has been occupied with science. The College of Nikola and Ada has a Scientific Society and are studying the Old Faithful area of Yellowstone. I was asked to join and Uncle Teddy agreed, thinking studying with students would be more interesting than listening to the Yellowstone Board’s meetings.


You would be happy to know my sketching skills are of great use to the group of students I’m helping. In fact, Professor Hayden invited me to join the Naturalist Department and said my observations skills would be a great asset to the program. It is all very exciting.

  3. The photo was taken in Fairhill, Maryland. Sometimes 8 sentences is not quite enough.
