Sad News

Robert Asprin passed away yesterday.  It was sudden and unexpected.  He was supposted to have been the guest of honor at Marcon this weekend.  I didn’t know the man very well, but we shared a couple of humor writing panels at Con DFW a few years back.  His work was obviously an influence on mine.  I’m sorry that he’s passed on.

Gardening fun.

This year Ryan hired someone to do the lawn maintenence.  Which freed me up to do more garden work.  So far I’ve broken up enough ground to plant tomatoes and cucumbers, gotten some vining plants onto trellesses, and finally figured out what I’m going to do with a pond liner that’s been basically leaning against a fence for the past […]
