McCloud Lumberjack Fiesta is cancelled for this year

It has just arrived in my inbox that this year's McCloud Lumberjack Fiesta has been cancelled. This is sad news but not unexpected. I've been bracing for it. My son and I look forward to next year's Fiesta, which is set for July 23, 24, and 25 of 2021.

So far as I am aware Metal in the Mountains and the Mt Shasta Sci Fi Expo are still happening. I still need to see what fees are for a table at the Sci Fi Expo for my son and myself, and if Metal in the Mountains happens the plan is to be there as well. Perhaps, if another suitable event happens in McCloud this year it will be possible for us financially as well as safe to be part of community events.

Stay safe everyone. It is sad that there won't be Fiesta this year, but there will be more to celebrate next year.

The Shape of Water (Book Review)

The Shape of WaterThe Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love stories of water dwelling folk and creatures. From the cover I was expecting the creature to be more like something from the Black Lagoon but was very pleasantly surprised by the semi-amphibious nature. I will have to look more deeply into the folklore of the water folk of Central America after listening. My favorite parts are the sections told from the creature's perspective.
