Much to my chagrin I will not be able to attend. Will be at Mom's in MT, but it really sounds like and enjoyable event! Cathy

You were over here, Alan?

I'm not able to attend either as I''ll be off at a writer's retreat, leading a class all next week. But I'm on the Board of Trustees at the library and they asked for help spreading the word... thus this commercial interruption. Back to our regular programming tomorrow.
