Year-end wrap up
I forgot that I had a wish list at Amazon! I don't think I've looked at this since last Christmas. I enjoy looking back over it and remembering the man that I used to be. I was a man without a baby, a man without a queen-size bed, and clearly a man without Steve Martin's "A Wild and Crazy Guy."
MY POLICY ON PEOPLE I DON'T KNOW GETTING THINGS FOR ME OFF MY AMAZON WISH LIST:
Other matters of year-end business:
We're happy to announce that Nice Pete's book should be ready in January of 2006. He left a "highly urgent" copy here for me to read, and it looks pretty much done, except some of the pages seem to have had hair stuck to them during photocopying. I'm not sure if he'll want to reprint those, but we've agreed to sell the book in our Achewood shop either way, since I don't want him making a cape out of my dog, or e-mailing me pictures of him dropping live caterpillars into a deep-fryer.
Thank you to Rod Mann, who owns the German auto repair shop that I used extensively this last year while getting a vintage car ready for selling. It looks like I bled enough cash there to make it onto his premium client list, which means that a 2lb box of See's Candies showed up today, with his business card tucked under the ribbon. You guessed it: sitting on my dinner table is Rod Mann's 2-pound Nut Sampler. Rod Mann's 2-pound Nut Sampler. Either American slang is completely lost on this guy, or it is completely understood by him.
That's about it for 2005! Thanks, year.
