Ahoy! Again, I'll be gone this weekend, and next weekend, and the weekend after that, and possibly the week after that. This weekend and next I'll be in California, looking at wildflowers. After that I'm headed for Kentucky for my bi-annual pilgramage to the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot. Then, if the stars align (ie if I have any money left over) I'll be taking a foray to one of the Meccas of our craft (the Big Apple), then it's time for Art Chicago. Shit, that's a lot to do. Well, lets get moving.
