Had a good solid chat with Frank Hayes about being a good toastmaster and as always he was both wise and kind and I’m on the right path I think.

So apparently – this from Paul, who’s currently at a soaring club AGM and will be back at the con shortly – Frank started singing Never Set the Cat on Fire last night (I had pumpkinned at midnight and was upstairs by then) and when he paused in search mode, Paul, who does not actually consider himself a filker, helpfully supplied the lyrics.

Not a filker, my ample dimpled bum. He stayed up to 2 am singing and playing with Kathy Mar, too;  he is so a filker. Kathy’s got a new album in progress and I can hardly wait to hear it.
