- Good heavens! Sumi masen Akiyo-gimi, never did I mean for such a
gross error in identifying you. As for your offer, I will make sure
to look for you at Pennsic. I'll be camping in the most horrid

on the Serengheti, or is it the Savannah? Either way, large open
field, too much damn sun and heat. What's a swarthy, Wisconsin boy
in juni-hitoe gonna do??? (Yes, I wear juni-hitoe, I know it's not
wholly acurate, but I have my reasonings.)
