Oh. My.

Discovered, thanks to my copy editor, Robert Klein, that I had named one of my characters in an unintentionally humorous way.  Two-arcas Merkin is a character who kills two arcas (bear-like creatures) and becomes known for it.  Turns out, you may know this but I didn’t, a merkin is a pubic wig.  First, I didn’t know there were such things.  Second, as a result, I didn’t know they had a name.  It’s the kind of thing I’m glad somebody caught.  Geez.

(Russian ambassador and President Merkin Muffley in Dr. Strangelove)

The weather outlook in Denver is consistent with what I’ve experienced several times over the Stock Show trips:  50’s, high 50’s.  Always seems weird, but northern moving Gulf air pressed east by the Rocky Mountains brings spring like temperatures to winter Denver often.  Jon likes it.  I don’t.  I like my seasons true to themselves.  Cold winters.  Warm, wet spring.  Hot summers.  Cool falls.
