Finally summer & missing comments re-discovered!

Thanks to everyone for sending in comments over the last few months. I was shocked to discover 47 comments that had been hidden away somewhere in blogger's settings panel. Since my outmoded version of Camino doesn't seem to pick up on them, I didn't even know they were there. I must have clicked a wrong button or something. I just thought everyone on the planet had been subsumed by Facebook.

But it's nice to know there are still people not abducted by Facebook.

Meanwhile, summer has been a long time coming here in Seattle. Even the natives who are used to the gloom were starting to grumble.

So when the longest streak of cold weather on record finally came to an end I wasn't about to waste a minute of it.

Even though the TV weather-people were all calling for clouds and rain... we sallied forth. They're wrong so often it's not even funny.

These pix are from Whidbey Island's Ebey landing, which is a great place for wide open skies... and it's just an hour from Seattle. One of my favorite places. Langley is a nice little town to drive through on the way there...

Testing... testing... do the comments work?

I'm glad you got your comments working again.

I finally found Sky-Cycle in a library. Never could find one in a bookstore. I'm glad to finally track one down. Great artwork and story!

Thanks for the compliments, Doug. I'm glad you found a copy.

I just saw my book in a bookstore for the first time yesterday... it was a nice sight, at last.


p.s. No one showed up for the book event... but that's okay. I enjoyed chatting with the bookstore people.
