Donna and I are now parents of 6 year olds. Yikes.

We all had a wonderful weekend. The boys got new bikes. They outgrew their first bikes a year ago. So it’s nice to see them on bigger 18 inch ones.

Brendan got some hockey figures (The McFarlane ones) Crosby, Malkin, and Staal.

Logan got a space shuttle, Lego set, and tee (for tee ball).


We went to the Rain forest Café for lunch and pretty much enjoyed things.

Thank you all for the Birthday wishes. The boys really enjoyed hearing them.


In other news. We’re only 2 and a half weeks away from Wondercon. I’m very excited to go back to San Francisco for the first time in about 20 years.

If you (or anyone you know) attends the Academy of Art in San Francisco…tell Chuck Pyle (the head of Illustration) you want to be notified when I stop by on Monday the 2nd. I’m going to see if I should bring books.


And finally.

I got an email from a reader who asked me to post a link to the Red Cross’s Australian site.

I’m sure most of you’ve heard that they’re having the worst disaster of fires in it’s history. So if you can. Help out.


Unfortunately they don’t take Paypal (I checked). So Credit Card only.

We wish our friends in Australia a quick recovery and relief from the fires.

Coming from Los Angeles…we know all too well how devastating they can be.


Have a great week…and hope you enjoy the story.
