I talked with David Baratier the editor of Pavement Saw a couple of days ago and we talked about the expected publishing date. I think I may have become a trifle lost in all of the dates. The end of March was the first date perhaps the one where it will be in galley stage then to printer then we get copies and then it will be available to the general public by June or July. Given my experience with academic publications I'm prepared for slippage.
We saw your father's relatives at your uncle's services. Myke is awesome. I know you two would have a connection. Craig was between jobs but he seems to always land on his feet. Hermina was as prepared as one can be. She has a large supportive family so that will help with all that is ahead of her.
Your cousin Missy is serious about a nice young man. I don't think I told you Erica is engaged to Rob a man she's been with for years. They are likely to tie the knot in late Oktober in a beach in Mexico.
Your let's see first cousin once removed Ana---Evan's daughter is an adorable sprite. Big dark eyes long dark hair despite having been cut. She's six months younger than Astrid whose hair is just getting past the baby stage. Once she told her mother Vic "I want hair." You would love her temperament. Heather's John was so totally enchanted with her he told Heather he wanted a daughter. You can imagine Heather's response.
Speaking of your sister I don't think she's told you Dr. Dean retired. It was rather sudden so her life has been turned upside down. She is getting many job interviews for selling radio ads something she is determined to get into.
Of course I imagine you know all this with your molecules flying around the universe.
Hmm you should take a peek at the collection of your poems I submitted for publication. I realize there are about 40 poems which aren't included. The editor may include a few of them. I don't know if he decides or I decide. Swoop in and take a look at my computer files and emails with David Baratier. I think I will rank order them in terms of my preferences just in case it's my decision so give me a sign or is it a Sign?
