Roy Lancaster was the featured speaker at a HPSO event yesterday. Joking around with the doorkeeper when she nearly forgot to give me a ticket stub for a door prize, “I should be about due to win something” quipped I. Browsing through books before the program, I fell upon the one pictured above. It fell into the “Must Have” category. When it came time for the drawing for door prizes, guess what? I won! And guess what the prize was? This very book. Is that poetic justice, or what?

More about the program, and about the Reed Hell Strip, which I visited on the way there, in later posts. I just had to share with you this bit of serendipity.

    Loree: I definitely thought of you the minute I spied the cover of the book.

    I bet it was the chat that did it :-)
    Or are you co-incidence prone like me?

    Joco: coincidence prone, for sure…now if i could just parlay that into winning the lottery. Think what a garden i could have. Alas, i have probably used up every scrap of luck due in this lifetime.
