LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Haha... I have been revived by some highly competent med techs. This life center will receive a positive review on Yelp.

P.S. The Desert Dirkettes are formulating a plan...

Question: Is Dirk actually smoking a cigar under his bandana in this picture?

Yep. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Talking Re: June - Albuquerque, NM

After a scare when I couldn't find my driver's license last night and accumulating as much ID as possible to prove that my name actually goes with my face, I made it through security and am waiting to begin the first leg of the trip to Albuquerque! Currently having breakfast next to a lovely view of a little garden and pond with fountains that definitely looks more impressive with the sunrise. Planes taking off in the background is also a definite plus.

Met up in Dallas and had to board quickly, but we've arrived in Albuquerque safe and sound. Three out of five here - let the adventures begin!

For me, adventures begin today. Too tired to do anything yesterday.

My, my, my... Looks like a good time was had by all.


And thanks to our intrepid reporters... OK, thanks to the Dirkettes who descended on Albuquerque (which may never be the same again), we have photographic evidence that a good time was had by all.



Dirk took his Saturday panel outside...

Evidence the van is legit (it's billed as the most complete A-Team van replica in New Mexico).

So - a good convention and a good party, and a lot of fun.


There will be another in a couple of weekends, maybe with another group. Send pictures!
