Wow! That was a a Crawl to remember. Thank you Tom Bochsler for spending more than 3 hours chatting with new friends and old + signing books by candlelight in the H + H courtyard. And Bob Chambers for taking photos of above ^^ and bringing more books in from the car. And of course my shop helpers without whom I would still be at the shop. And to my blasted knee that went out this am - you let me down, you're fired.
