I have been a first-class slacker for the past more than several months in terms of posting stuff to this here blog, and fully two of my three regular readers have noticed this. One thought I might be dead; the other figured I had been abducted by aliens and had taken my Chet Helms biography manuscript with me.  I could, of course, make excuses for my slackerism, but the only one I can think of is, “My dog ate my keyboard.”

Truth is, I have retreated into a sort of self-imposed solitary confinement to focus on writing the story of Chet’s life, after spending almost five years doing primary research.  Which proves, if nothing else, that I’m not all that into instant gratification.

Anyway, the Chet book is going very well and I can almost see the rainbow at the end of the tunnel. I’m seriously considering posting occasional excerpts from the book in this space, so I’m asking all three of you to check in once in a while.

  1. Not sure if I’m one of the 3, but I do check in regularly. Looking forward to future posts and of course the book. Thanks for all the work and previous posts.

  2. hi – looking forward to seeing more here and eventually buying your book – btw…you’re not pondering pig, are you? if not, do you know if he’s still around? no publishing for quite a long time and his url expired a few weeks ago, according to Hope he is ok. And it would suck if all that content went away because the domain needed to be renewed!


  3. I guess I must be the third one. 😉 I don’t stop by here very often, but I would if you were posting more often. (That’s not a complaint; just an observation.)

    I’m quite anxious to see my cousin’s biography in print, but bits and pieces here would be nice until that time comes.

    I very much appreciate what you are doing.
