I’ve got a bunch of photos from Hugo and Diana’s visit to put up. There always seemed to be something better to do… I’m going to backdate some of them, so if you’re family and you want to see photos, I’m going to put them up under the dates when I should have posted them.
Here we have a rather unflattering picture of Stick, holding up a Silk Market treasure: his new RUN DMC Adidas. This was slightly before he started walking about singing about them.
We didn’t have the greatest time shopping because Hugo was a walking target for every shady deal in the book. I don’t know how, but folks can see his good nature from miles away. We surrounded him like grumpy lictors, fighting against his inherent kindness to remind him to check for flaws and stains, to count change carefully, and so forth.
