I'm Back!

Armadillocon was great, and I'm glad to took the chance and went.  I saw a lot of old friends and new friends, had several meals with my son and my sister, and held up to the rigors of the convention very well.  In fact, I'm feeling better today than I did when I went, so I think I've shaken off the effects of the chemo.  Two weeks or so until the next infusion, and I'm looking for some good days during that time.

The photo on the left was taken on Saturday night by Kasey Lansdale.  From left to right are Dave Hardy, Dwight Simms, Joe Lansdale, Lawrence Person, James Reasoner, me, and Scott Cupp.  Bull sessions like this used to last until two or three in the morning.  This one broke up at ten-thirty.  We're getting old, folks.  Anyway, even though it was shorter than in the old days, it was a heck of a lot of fun.  I hope to get to do it again sometime.

Glad you took the plunge and went and had a good time. Been a while since I've been to ArmadilloCon. I'd like to go at least one more time. Best wishes.

Looks like whoever it was said you'd keep your hair this time was right...so far. Glad you made the trip!

I echo the sentiments expressed above, but I can't help but wonder why you let Kasey take the picture instead of being in it--front and center?
