Marty’s photo of the day #4004: I haven’t posted a scenic photo for a while. Here’s one I took a few years ago, while on a college speaking tour in Arizona. I was driving between gigs, when a snowstorm hit. I had some time, so I parked the car and went hiking for a while.

Martyman is going on a beer run.

Martyman is going on a beer run.

Marty’s photo of the day #3209: My wife and I are well prepared for sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sure, I lost my April college speaking tour and a book-signing and all the press and publicity that goes with those events. Sure, many of the stores that carry Deb’s weaving kits have temporarily […]
