What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Thursday things

To the kindly person who sent me the Jesus Tracts from Chick Publications, thanks, I needed the laugh. The address was hand written, without a return, and by someone left-handed (there's an obvious slant). And being left-handed myself, I can crack this joke, I think it's hilarious that someone who is sinister sent me the Jesus tracts.

So, I was walking through Jo Ann Fabrics today (one, yes, I am a crafty person and two, I was getting a frame, and three, yes, I do know how to sew) and saw this. ::wants:: Seriously, I've been wanting to start a t-shirt business for years. I know people in the advertising specialty business who have given me good quotes. I've also looked at starting a a cafe press store.

This morning was excellent sleeping weather, especially right as I needed to get up. Soft rain wetted the trees and gurgled in the downspout. A cool breeze flowed out from under the canopy and disturbed the sheers. Twilight lingered in the boughs and corners of the world. Hauling myself out of bed took some time. Dratted work pulled me from sweet dreams and easy sleeping.

This weekend is Confluence in Pittsburgh. I'll be off tomorrow to meet, confer, converse and otherwise hobnob with my fellow writers and fans. Also to apologize in person. Then there will be the interesting panels and talk, catching up with people and feeling relaxed by being with other fans.

My husband has a subscription to Chick. I do not kid. You can buy a selection of the tracts, and then they send you the new ones as they come out. We haven't quite decided what to do with them yet.

ChiaLynn, I know someone who used to collect them. Kind of a hobby for him.

n the big screen printers - used to do computer work for a business that did custom shirts, and they had a big four-color screen printer, along with computer-controlled embroidery machines and Quark Express for design software. They did good business, but they had much dollars invested.

Hope you have fun at Confluence. Look forward to a good report, and maybe even pictures.
