And happy early birthday to angelinehawkes, with best wishes for many happy returns of the day.
* Now that it's May, my thoughts turn to ConCarolinas. Will I see any of you there? I hope so!
* Also, I want to give much love to Black Phoenix Trading Post's Lovecraft-inspired limited edition series: Miskatonic Valley Junior Baseball Association Team Gear: The Innsmouth Guppies vs. the Dunwich Whippoorwills. Check it out: "Due to the unforeseen consequences of last winter's Rite of the Black Goat, we have been temporarily downsized to two teams. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of the Kingsport Moonbeasts and the Aylesbury Zoogs who are currently resting in Arkham Sanitarium." Ha!
And a quote for the day:
"The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May... Nowadays, men can not love seven nights but they must have all their desires: that love may not endure by reason... Right so fareth love nowadays, soon hot, soon cold: this is no stability. But the old love was not so; men and women could love together seven years and no licours lusts were between them, and then was love, truth, and faithfulness; and lo, in like wise was used love in King Arthur's day."
