    Being ignorant, I've heard of Loscon, but nothing more than the name. What/when/where?

    You're one up on me - I don't think I've even heard the name. Or if I did, I've forgotten. Come to think of it, that's certainly possible.

    Yay for google: LosCon. Looks like LA, Thanksgiving weekend.

    Its a literary convention that is slightly taken over by costumers (which they don't really like, but that is part of the fun). Thanksgiving weekend, at the LAX Marriott Hotel. Been going to that convention for more years than I care to count. But with everything up in the air right now..this year isn't looking so good.

    BayCon...THAT'S the one to go to.

    It's official...won't be attending LosCon. Not with Mom's health the way it is right now, and her in the hospital still (24 days and counting).

    While she was being fairly insistant upon Jos and I attending (she knows how much conventions mean to us), we just couldn't do it to her, just couldn't leave her right now. So, with absoutely no regrets :) we will be spending Thanksgiving here at home and probably sharing at the hospital with her. Everyone else, go and have a great time for us! Next year may be more promising.

    Hugs to everyone that keeps asking..

    Kim and Josie

    Sounds like 100% the best possible decision to make. :)
