PARK MAGAZINE, conclusion

So there was the park magazine, being chased by the indians, and approaching the cliff, when suddenly ...
Okay, it wasn’t that dramatic.  But one other fellow and I didn’t want to see this publication go down the drain.  I don’t remember why we thought Marty would make a good editor.  She was fairly new to the park, and a very bright woman.  But we did approach her to ask if she would take over the editorship.  She agreed provided she didn’t have to do the computer work, so I agreed to continue that part of it.

And so it has been ever since.  She designated me Associate Editor, and we work quite well together.  She gathers up material from a variety of places, including submissions by park residents, as well as other sources.  She is excellent at grammar, spelling, and punctuation -- better than I, and we will often discuss the suitability of any given piece of material.

For my part, I have added double columning to the pages, photographs, and a far better printer.  She emails me her copy, and I form them into the appropriate pages.  I quite enjoy doing this, and there are times when the paging gets quite challenging.  And where do you think I get some of the humor for this blog?  Right!

Speaking of which --
