I apologize for not being around much the past few weeks. The decision has been made for me to move to the Sonora area so I can be closer to family. My mother is 86 now and my sisters need my help. I'll be moving sometime in the fall, provided I find a place. I'm looking for a house to buy and the prices are of course much cheaper than Los Angeles, but the pickings are pretty slim. Plus I need to find a place that has a minimum of stairs (for my mother) and a fenced yard (for the dogs). That may not sound too hard, until you see the mountainous terrain of the area. I find myself checking Zillow and Trulia every five minutes.
I'm really looking forward to living in that area. I'll be closer to the family, and it definitely will be a pleasant change from Southern California. I'm tired of living in a ghetto neighborhood just to be next to the ocean. But the move will be bittersweet as I'll be leaving many close friends and family behind.
I'm still coming to Pulp Fest of course, and I'm looking forward to my presentation at Ohio State on Thursday the 7th at 4:30 PM. Believe me, after all this, going to Pulp Fest will be a very nice diversion. And yes, I'm still writing the book on Daisy.
Anyway, I'll try to post news and events as they crop up.
