A favorite gift from 2007

A favorite gift from the last twelve years is the purple pencil sharpener shown at the top of this image. It may have only cost a dollar or two, but one of my sisters and her daughters gave it to me when I saw them right before I moved to Alaska, and it’s been with me ever since. I especially like it at times like this, when I’m editing a new book.

An “Alaska Stud Muffin” coffee mug. Back in the day I bought fine coffee mugs like these for friends and family.
