Just to recap for locals making weekend plans:

The launch party is at East Side Story at 6 p.m. I suspect actual doings won’t start until 6:30. You can pre-purchase copies here (and that’s the only way for out of town people to get books that I know of at the moment). You don’t have to pre-purchase copies. Plenty will be available at the event.

But once they’re gone, they’re gone.


The Cats Have Emerged from their Hiding Places

We’re done dog-sitting. The cats are out and eating a lot and rubbing themselves on things they have been unable to rub against for a week because the dog-friend would have to bark at them and try to sniff them.

Sonnyboy is exhausted. He behaved like a dream on our walk and is now snoring next to me. He was very good with the other dog, but he seems happier to have all the attention back on him.
