Somewhere My Love and the Old Dude

A nice birthday surprise for the old man—my story, "Somewhere My Love," is now posted in issue #12 of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. He even does a reading of the story, which I did not expect, and it's extremely well done. Also to my surprise was the fact that it's illustrated by Nick Greenwood, whom I used to work with at The Education Center here in Greensboro. Many thanks to Mr. Card and editor Ed Schubert for a fine job—and so nicely timed to elevate the old dude's spirits. The whole issue is available for just $2.50 at Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show.

Apparently, Mrs. Death has a little something planned for this evening, though she isn't sharing very much. That Mrs. Death.

Actually, my first official act for my birthday was getting first-to-find on a new cache that came out last night. After a big old hike/bushwhack yesterday afternoon, I was pretty zonked and I figured I'd skip it and just go to bed. However, I quickly came to my senses, went, out and snagged it at 12:50 AM. Nice present.

Happy Birthday, youngster. And that sort of thing must be a nice surprise. Take care and be safe when you're out geocaching.

Thanky -- And now and again it's nice not to be the oldest fart in a room. ;)
