Monthly Archives: August 2013



Haven’t blogged for a couple of years now [“now” being February, 2017], and I’ve got lots of good excuses: been finishing up my second novel in the Eddy Trout Series, Trout Run; have moved from Portland to the McKenzie River, where I’ve been converting an above-garage space into a guest room; have welcomed more grandchildren into the world; have been attending music festivals; have been sampling craft beers; yada-yada. So, what does all this this have to do with the photo taken from the stern of a cruise ship? Maybe nothing at all.
