Somehow this was a strange and rather wild, up and down week. Good stuff happened, not so good stuff happened. One exciting opportunity crumbled, a new one appeared. I got a flat tire and had to get a new tire thanks to the metal spike plunged into it. At least a friend had a can of Fix a Flat to get me to the local tire repair place. Wayne, Jeff and Matt all got sick one after another (hope I am not next), while I missed friends and family who have passed away and reveled in cherished memories with other friends. Grab Bags got pulled and shipped early, while deadlines on books continue to stretch. We lost heat in the warehouse, but our imaginations and creative energies have never burned hotter. We are working like maniacs all the darn time, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get it all done. Whew. Details follow.
