Jake the Snake

Went to see the wrasslers at the comic store with the other wrasslin fans today. Saw the local fellers (not pictured). Saw the Lance "Dallas" Hoyt from TNA. Saw the Jake the Snake. Got the autographs. Wife got picture with Jake.

Good day.

R.A.W. R.I.P.

On January 11 at 4.50 a.m. Bob Wilson died.

I haven't mentioned it before here, not because I didn't notice. Or because it didn't mean anything to me, rather because I've been trying to put it out of my head.

I want to be joyous and happy for his passing from pain, and I am happy that he is in no more pain. I am not happy that he is gone.

His writings which came to me at the proper time in my life and guided me well are still here. My impression of him and the Bob that I imagine he was still lives on, but I am saddened that I will not see Cosmic Trigger vol. 4 and after. I am saddened that I will never be present for one of his speaking gigs and that I will never meet him in person.

I am saddened that the world has lost a sage.

I can only hope to attempt to continue making each moment a bigger and happier reality tunnel and remember the things he taught me.

Briar Rabbit in the Cemeteries *Updated*

One of my friends, D.C. Stewart, has just published a guide to McMinn County's cemeteries called Briar Rabbit in the Cemeteries: A Special Map Guide to McMinn County, Tennessee Burial Grounds.

It's a book of maps that He spent over two years compiling that point the way to pretty much every cemetery in McMinn County, especially the hard to find ones. It's hard bound, a little over 400 pages and has about 200 hand drawn maps so that you can find the spot you're looking for. There are also photos from every cemetery included.

Also, I contributed the cover illustration (Roxanne did the lettering on the tombstone), but that really isn't that much of a contribution.

This really is a nice looking book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is a fan of local history, really needs some maps to local cemeteries, or just would like to have a good looking book full of maps and pictures.

The book isn't really on sale just yet, but Dennis is planning on holding a book signing at PostNet in Athens (they did the binding and printing) on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m.

It'll also be available for purchase at Village Bookshop in Athens. The price will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $35

Dennis will be holding his signing at PostNet in Athens on Monday, February 12 at 3 p.m. If you are even halfway interested in picking up the book I'd urge you to come out and meet Dennis and support his work.
