Judy Crider, R.I.P.

     I'm saddened to report that Judy Crider has finally succumbed to the cancer she fought courageously for eight years. Here she is with husband Bill in 1980 at the Washington, D.C. Bouchercon. I'll always remember her for her serene presence and lovely smile.

     I hope you all have a happy and gluttonous Thanksbuddy. Go Seahawks.

Sofia Is Four

     At El Toro for the baby's birthday dinner. Here, she wears the sombrero as the waiters sing "Happy Birthday."

Throwback Thursday

     Christmas, 1991. As you can see, I'm displaying my usual good cheer. That's Linda at the piano and the little head in the foreground belongs to her nephew, I think.

Throwback Thursday

     I'm only going back about four years today. Here's a very young Sofia, soon to be a birthday girl.

Veteran's Day

To all my fellow vets, stand as tall and proud today as you did when you took your oath.

Throwback Thursday

I am especially fond of this photo, taken about 22 years ago, of the girls enjoying a game on the couch. The exuberance and joy of childhood really shines through.
