Always a pleasure and thanks for the timely reminder.

Every so often you get the most pleasant surprise.

Full disclosure: I'm a comic book geek. I've been reliving my childhood for a number of years with them as my main portal and it's been an absolute hoot, especially as I've been able to take it to the next level (no, I don't do the costuming thing. I tell my beloved all the time that if she sees me squeezing into spandex to please call the authorities as I've obviously snapped my cap), but for over a decade now I've been able to search out and interview many of the classic creators.

So just yesterday I discovered that one of them, whose 89th birthday just happens to be today, will be traveling to the Denver Comic Con this weekend. I quickly secured tickets and will at last get to meet the guy I first spoke to (and have many times since) on the phone 10 years ago.

I'm really excited about this and they say one of the keys to happiness is having something to look forward to, so this Friday should be a great day!

All the best to each of you and may you have great things to anticipate as well.
