OK, I lied.
But, the big news from here is that yesterday my oldest son's best friend from high school, Frank, (who I got started on Harry Potter and who consequently owns and runs my local independent bookstore) his wife, Kim, and mother-in-law, Tammy, and I went down to Joseph Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY for The Gathering Storm (see last post) book signing.
Frank had gotten wind of the fact that Harriet McDougal (Robert Jordan's wife and editor) was going to be there too. So we hauled the huge load of books down and heard them speak, and Harriet read from the prologue of The Gathering Storm, the Death of Masema scene.
And then we waited around for our turn for signing, and pictures. Both socks grew appreciatively so when it was my turn, I ask Brandon to hold the sock, and he was most gracious, but I noticed that people who hold the sock for pictures, (except, of course, other sock knitters) all have that same look on their faces. Strange that.
