Days, weeks, what's the difference?

"Let's pretend it's easy this time and see how it goes." -- fredcritter

I just looked at my list. My incomplete list. All I need is about week for each and every one of the next seven days. And I need those seven days/weeks to then squeeze down into the space allocated to Monday through Friday. This Monday through Friday.


It's likely to be like this for awhile. From until after Chicon most likely. Reminder: the Hugo voting deadline is Tuesday, July 31st. There's a spiff countdown clock on the Chicon web page with the online Hugo ballot and also on the home page. It's telling me that I currently have 1 day, 19 hours, 8 minutes, and an ever-diminishing number of seconds to get my vote in. Why, yes, that's on my list, and the hypothetical seven days for every one don't include any further reading time of that spiff Hugo voter's packet. It also disappears from the Chicon website when voting is closed, so if you've been meaning to buy a supporting or attending membership, get the packet, and vote in the Hugo's, now's the time.

I'm celebrating my 30th Fanniversary at Chicon, co-hosting with Matt & Kelly Strait in the Minnesota Magpies suite late Thursday night. More details on that to come. But probably not this week….

Speaking of Matt & Kelly Strait, they're reviving Rune! Huzzah, huzzah, calloo callay! Write early, write often. Ditto that for fanart.

Other quick headlines of note: I haven't seen the moose, but it's certain we have a bear. The next door neighbor shot nearly 5 minutes of video as a gorgeous, healthy-looking black bear stood a good 5-feet tall while chowing down on the food in one of their bird feeders a recent early morn.

There's no sign that the bear has come up on my deck to help harvest the black raspberries ripening there. Yet. I haven't looked closely enough at the blackberries toward the back edge of mowed lawn, or other black raspberries on the property to see if the same holds true there.

And so life goes. With gusto!

Hope to see you on the Funway....

It's looking like I'm giving a talk on Thursday night of Chicon but will head for the party after it is over.

Bears! For me, squirrels digging up my lettuce constitute exciting wildlife. Oh, and I evicted a caterpillar, too.

Bears have been getting a bit more aggressive this year so be cautious.

Your entire list is great. Binny's! Binny's! Binny's!

OMG. Thanks to the Binny's website, I now know that Angry Orchard makes an Apple Ginger Cider. Must try.
