  • A few weekends ago, I boldly went where so many other nerds had gone before: comic con. It wasn’t the big one held in San Diego each year, but it still had some big-name guest and lots of excitement.

    I didn’t cosplay — dress up like a character — but did spend several days deciding which sci-fi T-shirt to wear. I finally picked one featuring Marvel character Loki, mainly because I have a slight crush on the actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston. The friend who went with me wore a TARDIS dress.

  • By the time this column is read, my niece, McKenzie, will be Mrs. Loyd. I had forgotten in a short two-year span how the wedding-planning game works. I must say it still is the same. I have tried to be a help to my sister in the planning and dragging of wedding materials.

    McKenzie is the quiet storm of the four grandchildren in our family. She is the one you never know what she is thinking unless you ask. So when she announced she had met the man of her dreams, we were shocked and happy. Then the icing was put on the cake when he asked her to be his bride.
