This is the ever faithful Barbara Toohey, who has PROMISED to write a new letter to be posted on the homepage. Don't believe a word of it if she complains about me.

This is Barb in the rose garden, probably hoping she won't have to do a lick of work. Many of you were able to meet her at the Cybersibs Gathering. She made a point of driving up to Avila Beach when she heard about the wine tasting Monday of that week.

In truth, we're not entirely fixated on answering fan mail, unpacking boxes, and making sure books get signed. This is us hanging out under the pergola near the pool.
