Yes, the smell outside is oppressively caustic.  The sky was dark all day
and the sun looked blood red before it went down over the fires southwest of
us.  My son & grandson live in Blue Jay to the north and have been under
"mandatory evacuation" for some time.  He's staying with his father-in-law
closer to where he works, and I've been "dog-sitting" his Airedale Winston.
My dogs, Winston, and I are not out roaming in memory of Burns but hiding
out in my well air-conditioned study.

Thanks for the poems you've been sending lately. From the looks of 

things (viz., Google Earth) San Jacinto is some way from the major 

fires, yet close enough to them that you might be able to smell smoke.


You're not one of those Scots poets who scribbles as Burns roams, are you?
