The bad news I spent most of the weekend bed-ridden with what seems to have been an attack of food poisoning. The suspect is a roast beef hero from a local sandwich shop where I ate Saturday night. Patricia, thankfully, didn't have the same thing, and so escaped unscathed.
Good news is that Howard's introduction has arrived, so we are in the home stretch for my "Fantastic Texas" collection. I dropped Ian Strock a note to to let him know it will be on its way soon.
