Frank Denton - The Rogue Raven

Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Hear Ye

Know you, one and all, that I will be missing for about five weeks. We have worked on a volksmarch (10K walk) on Saturday. 216 walkers, thank you. And we closed out the horse racing season at Emerald Downs today (Sept. 30). I must say it was a sloppy track but an entertaining day withal. My betting got worse rather than better as the meet went on. Now I must wait until next April to begin again. Meanwhile we are off on a driving wander: Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada, California or parts thereof. Maybe I'll have some adventures to write about during the trip.
