The last couple of days have been spent energetically clearing out the basement of my sister's place, where the shop had left behind some 1 or 2 thousand magazines. My efforts to find a buyer, or even someone who would haul them away, failed. So tomorrow morning I and my wonderful, long suffering mother-in-law are going to cart the whole pile over to the WindyCon hotel, to be distributed free to all attendees by whatever method the Powers That Be deem best.
I try hard not to think about how much all this stuff cost when I bought it.
Unfortunately, after dropping the goodies off, I will be leaving to catch a flight back to Seattle. No con for me
