he day before Bouchercon 2014
begins, I saw people I hadn't seen in days and weeks, and tomorrow I expect to see at least one I haven't seen in years. Everyone is excited to see their friends but too tired from travel to party too raucously this first night, so we generally conduct ourselves in a responsible manner.

Had a minor screw-up on a food of order at the hotel bar, but received a Hendrick's and tonic on the house as compensation. Bouchercon is always what separates the weekend bartenders from the pros. Here's to you, ladies and gents. I'll buy you a drink Sunday night.
Music came up in a bar chat with homies John McFetridge and Kevin Burton "Thrilling Detective Web Site
" Smith, in particular the Guess Who--appropriate for the Long Beach waterfront, which is full of colo(u)red lights
