Thursday Troubles

I had a bad night last night. I slept for no more than an hour. As I couldn't sleep, I began writing the Wayne May article for Dogs Today magazine at around 6am. I finished and submitted it at around 11am after only a couple of rewrites. Here's an extract:

Wayne May was a victim of theft years ago. “I used to show my dogs and they (criminals) followed me home from a dog show and stole my dogs”. Wayne had six dogs stolen. “We got home from the dog show and we bathed the dogs and we fed them and we were sitting down in our living room having our tea.”, says Wayne, “It was later in the year so it was getting dark early and the dogs started barking and when I went out into the back yard to see why the dogs were barking, they were already in the process of stealing my dogs.”

 The editor liked it.

Tonight, I've been trying to find a very simple audio editor so that I can put a few seconds of the interview on here. But to no avail.
