Glad you're back safe and sound, Marcy.  It sounds like it is fun.  Maybe I will go, but may wait until it comes back somewhere in the western U.S.

Hope your special day is filled with love and peace, Marcy.

Marcy,  I will try to PM you the next time I'm in chat and give you my cell number.  You can give me a call and we can work it out.  Tom

Good for you, we need all the readers we can get. And how brave of your friends, to stay active in fandom. I was on a Worldcom committee once, and saw long-term friendships and even a marriage come apart under the strain. Fannish politics can get pretty intense.


I think it's a good idea to celebrate your birthday this way. A friend and I went to Seattle for Norwescon over mine, and it certainly took my mind off things. I hadn't been in a while, and was surprised at the amount of Steampunk that's sprung up. Interesting sub-genre. I hope you post a report afterwards.

I was wondering what your interest is in going to WorldCon. Are you doing some writing yourself?

Sounds good, I think lunch is a good idea.  All the buffet lunches at various hotels are minutes from Reno Tahoe Interenational.

 I am so sl-o-o-o-w sometimes.  I just noticed that you were coming to Worldcon in Reno around Aug. 17th.  I made a decision to go to Camp Widow about a week ago, but should arrive back home by about the Aug. 16th so I would love to meet you and your friends.  The 17th would have been Barbara's and my 39th anniversary.  I have never been to a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Convention and am not really planning on attending myself.  I just love to read the genre.  Tell me when it will be convenient, and I'll drop by for a real chat.  I should go to the bottom of my wall more often, who knows what else I missed.

So sorry for your loss Catmanor, My husband passed on 5/14/11 some days the pain is unbearable. I hope as we travel on this path we are all now on it helps to know we will never again have to do it alone.

Catmanor.  Welcome to WV.   Glad I am not the only one new and old at the same time.

I lost my wife 13 months ago to Pulmonary Fibrosis, a wasting disease of the lungs.  Either way it is hard and there are groups in WV for both Sudden and Extended Illness losses.

I noticed your Worldcon remark and I mentioned it because I have been an Analog reader for over 50 years and Reno is having a Worldcon convention in August.  Never been to one, but have always thought about going.  I am really shy so I hope I don't have to go Klingon to have coffee.  Would love to have the opportunity to meet for coffee though.  Tomrestored.
