Lisa tells me that travelswithkuma is grumpy with us, because we didn't go to Seaside for Bear's birthday, which is today. We apologized and said we'd hold a party for him at Westercon in Seattle. We aren't likely to be able to go to Seaside annually like we used to do. I'd actually like to go spend a week or even more there. I like it there. Lisa likes to visit the seashore but wouldn't want to live there.
