I don’t have a lot of time today… so I’m just going to leave you with a quick post. I went to visit my parents this past weekend– and my brother and sister-in-law were there as well. They were there for a ‘mini-reunion’ of some of Matt’s classmates who didn’t make it to his recent 20th reunion… and they met on Saturday night at a restaurant in Lynchburg (which is the largest town/city near where my folks live). Usually I only get to see Matt and Suzanne twice a year– once at HEROES CON and once at Thanksgiving…. so this has been a lucky year for me getting to see them more than the norm. It was also special because yesterday was my 44th birthday– and it was wonderful to be with all my immediate family for that day.

It was a really wonderful weekend. Too bad it was so short and had to end.

OK… work beckons. Have a great day, all.

This is Entry 392.

    Hi !
    You were once talking about “human shape animals” and I wonder if you know about a french kind of Comic made by ex Disney people (you may know them )
    The book is called “Blacksad” (Three stories are available at the moment) and the authors are Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido
    I think that you may like it …
    Many Thanks for posting even if you re busy
