Last Christmas I won a pair of tickets to a Mariners game in the Owner’s Box, 4th row, and Friday I took advantage of it. We shut the Mets out and Ichiro hit a home run with two men on base. “Ichi-rrific!” screamed the signs while the crowd taunted the Mets and ate Ivar’s clam chowder. Did I mention I love Seattle? Meanwhile, disatisfaction with the size of the first Scooter and Ferret volume led us to increase it by 16 pages, so there will be quite a few more strips for your money. Just over a year’s worth in fact. We hope to have copies ready for sale by this year’s Cascadia Con, and of course I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
