Happy New Year, everyone!
This web site and its blog have been up and running for a year now (a touch over a year, if you want to be persnickety) and I thank all of you who have taken the time to read and comment and buy books. My primary goal has been to entertain, and I hope I’ve achieved that. Certainly, I am always delighted to get feedback, agreeing with me or arguing with me, either way.
My resolution for the New Year is to start posting more visual images. It took me a while to master (ha!) the steps, but I have started, and for those of you who are curious, if you go to A Man With a Tight Mouth, under Other Writings, you will see a photograph of Mackie I took for a short profile I wrote about him for a hunting magazine a couple of years ago. Since my photographic skills are right up there with my skills at performing brain surgery with a drill press and a belt sander, I’m rather proud of that photo; Mackie actually looks like a recognizable member of the human race, and I didn’t cut off any critical portion of his anatomy (something I almost certainly would have done with a drill press and a belt sander).
I wish all of you health and happiness. Be safe.
