It's a Great Day for Birthdays!

June 16. I could not let today go by without posting. Today, Evelyn's grandson, Victor, turns 97!! He lives in Montana with his daughter, Feather. I do wish I could meet him, but Montana is so far away...

Today is also my friend Tom's birthday, who is no doubt already celebrating in England. ;)

It's been quite hectic documenting and writing Evelyn's story, my Cary, NC book, and my True West column. Not to mention still trying to find a paying job. I got a great compliment from the Executive Editor, Bob Boze Bell, about my column on bread, which comes out in August (I think). Those kudos make it all worth while.

Next week is the annual Western Writers of America conference in Knoxville, Tennessee. I will try to post from the conference, but it always seems like I have so many things going on while I'm there.
