Well it finally happened. Due to a combination of lack of transportation, uncertain finances and slowly declining health, I must announce my retirement from the blog, effective January 27, 2015.
I was onboard from the inception of this blog, but I never wrote very much. I was more of a tagalong at times, and I never found the time to fully integrate with the group. It was thanks to Matthew that I stayed on all this time, and honestly, I thank him for this chance, as well as everyone over the years for supporting us.
Once again, I am announcing my retirement from the California Conventions Blog, effective January 27, 2015. Sayonara, minna. This is Tom Gifford, signing off into the sunset.
