Whale fluke

"No BBQ for this bad kid"

A public apology to my cousin Amy Thompson Max "Maximy" (as I call her) Walsh:

I won't get to your 8th Annual Big Bash Barbecue next month in Seattle. It conflicts with my going to see Sleater-Kinney.

Admittedly, going up to Seattle I could see the inspiration for the band's name, that sign for the Sleater-Kinney interchange near Olympia, but I really very truly want to see the actual band, thankyouverymuch.

But I've been meaning to get myself up to your neighborhood again and meet your roommate and the new housepets and help out with continued home remodeling. I *WILL* get there! Just some other time.

Eat, drink, and be merry, 'Cuz. I hope to do the same at the NINTH Annual Big Bash Barbecue.

Love and hugs,

P.S. Congrats on the fully fenced yard!
