1. My cousin is working on a book and she sent me a bunch of what she's written and I tried to give her some helpful advice. She's smart. She's a good writer. Her way of writing is unlike anyone else I've read. I wish I knew more about the book publishing business so I could help her with that, but I can be encouraging.
2. I might have been a help to Sam as she gets herself situated in Eugene.
3. I got in a few good wise cracks when MB, Michael, Jeff, and I had coffee at the Wandering Goat and it was fun giving my good friends a few good laughs.
