Kickstarter Victory!

Dear LIza,

You know that Auntie Katie has been working very hard to raise money to move her bookshop, Books with Pictures, from the rented building at 1100 SE Division to her 1927 purchased building at 1401 SE Division. Well, today, she made it!!

People all over the country have helped by  buying merchandise and donating,  and they have raised over $30,000 for moving expenses and repairs to the new shop. It is very exciting, and means that she will be able to move the shop to the new building by the end of May!

This evening, after I had visited with my old friend Cynthia and had dinner, Grandpa Nelson and I met Katie at our local science fiction geek restaurant, the Nerd Out. It was also Free Comic Book Day, so she had been very busy, talking to folks and giving away free books.

I love the Nerd Out! It always has science fiction movies showing on the screen (this evening it was the early Star Wars) and has drinks like The Adam West and The Spider Man-Hattan. Mitch, who runs the place, makes tasty food and encourages everyone to enjoy themselves. I wanted to get a picture of Auntie Katie in her Captain Marvel costume, but she was really tired. So I took a picture of a lady in a very cool R2D2 suit.

Once we had visited and gotten Auntie Katie fed, we headed back home to cuddle on the couch.

Another lovely day.
