I hate being the one who has to do this, but our financial situation is such, I have to find a home for the cats. Contact me if you know of anyone who would like a mature cat. Thanks to all in advance. Maurine
We are waiting for an apartment and that has us in limbo. The first week wasn't so bad when we had the expectation of moving into a place right away. But the delay has made soured everything. The routine is to assemble a bed to sleep on in the evening, and secure the cats. Then it's fold and store everything in the morning, pack the van, put the cats in carriers and basically pick up our foot prints and take them with us.
The San Jose bibloteca is interested in Dann and I teaching a cartooning class. That will be mostly Dann. I'm still teaching and helping the kids at the Ark. They are so much fun and great to work with.
Got a call from two recruiters. They seem up-beat and positive.
This is a testimony to keeping busy while dealing with unemployment. Volunteer work does seem to pay off. If anything it keeps you involved with your craft. I have to say that 90% of this is Chris Garcia's fault. He trusted me to do weird and eclectic stuff for the Drink Tank and ...I did. Still am. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have met James Bacon and a host of other folk from Corflu. Thanks Chris. And no way did I forget the best group of goobers in fandom, the Bay Area Science Fiction Association (BASFA).
This nomination dosen't mean I've won a Hugo. That comes later in Reno, if I'm lucky. As far as I'm concerned, I've won the best thing ever and that's being able to attend a Worldcon where I can meet and talk to the biggest collection of writers, artists and creative people in Science Fiction. Thanks everyone. Maurine
