Bouchercon, 1982, San Francisco, California. The man on the left is rock star Tough Jim Gaston. That's me on the right when I wore contact lenses.

Throwback Thursday

That's me on the left at the Milwaukee Bouchercon in 1981. I think the chap on the right is Bob Randisi. This was one of my favorite conventions, and my second mystery con.

Throwback Thursday


     Arizona, 1985, a post-Bouchercon visit. Left to right: sister Denise, Mother Gloria, sister Wendy, and me. I don't know the names of the dogs.

Throwback Thursday


     


     With the vote today that will decide whether Scotland becomes an independent nation or remains a part of Great Britain, I thought it appropriate to throw back however many centuries it was when this became the coat of arms for the Napier clan. The motto means "without stain."

     Do any of you have a family coat of arms?

Kit of the Week Revisited


     Remember when I showed the box for the Heller ladybug model kit? Well, I bought it and earlier this week I completed the assembly.



     The finished bug measures about 3 3/4 inches (110 mm). Right now she's guarding a shelf of my Western paperbacks.

Throwback Thursday



     This looks to be about 20 years old. I don't know why I bought those porthole glasses but they must have been the height of fashion at the time. My girls are Kristine (left) and Stephanie. You probably recognize the milieu as a photo booth. The first time I saw one you got four poses for a quarter. I think I paid $1.50 for this, and now they're about five bucks, but are in color. Ain't progress grand?

On this day in 1989.

Happy 25th anniversary to me and Linda. Someone needs an award for endurance.
