Judy and I are getting ready to go to Austin for the Armadillocon. I'll try to take a photo or two, maybe get a short interview with some of the luminaries. Last year I was the Toastmaster. This year I'm on one panel. From the penthouse to the outhouse, the story of my life. Just kidding. I wasn't planning to be on any panels at all. I'm more interested in hanging out than I am in doing panels. Maybe I'll even find a book or two in the dealers' room.

  2. Indeed. It is rumored that Jack MacLane picked up a copy of a precious Dell mapback just before Bill could, at a fateful ArmadilloCon, that the dealer had obliviously tagged at a buck. MacLane then laughed in Bill's wince as MacLane careless jammed the paperback into his rear pants pocket, ripping the covers.

    I'm glad it was your decision to hang out this year. It afforded me the pleasure of having met you. Your friend from small-town "Mahair," Texas.

  5. I loved talking to you about Mexia and Wortham. Small world, indeed.
