From the Bird's Beak

Here's another fine nest you've gotten me into...

One of our own has passed away. "Katya Baturinsky," was the name she was known by primarily in Man from UNCLE fandom, and she often posted here on veniceplace in the early years. She was a good friend and supporter of SH fandom, attending many SHareCons and enjoying the friendships she made there. One of my most prominent memories of her was on September 11, 2001. Katya worked in the Twin Towers and escaped before their collapse. She wrote of her harrowing escape to the VP list almost as soon as she arrived home. That's something I'll never forget. She was a warm, friendly, openhearted and generous person, happy to share a hotel room with unexpected guests, happy to spend time with fannish friends. She left us much too soon, and I will miss her. You can find some of her fiction by doing a google search on her name. I don't believe she's on AO3.

Late in posting this. My wife, Anne, and I had a wonderful time at the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. Felt like I was in my 30's again! It was awe inspiring, exhilerating... and exhausting. During the course of the day, we walked around 6+ miles! Still recovering but totally worth it.

And you thought we were done! We were able to add CrazyKater's beautiful 2017 S&H Calendar to the Advent Calendar so it can be found along with all the other gifts. (It is also available on the SH archive.) We hoped people would take a moment to check it out and leave a comment. It's a terrific calendar. You can find it by going to day 24 of the Advent Calendar. Enjoy!

SURPRISE! We have one final Christmas gift that slipped in just a wee bit too late to get in the Advent Calendar. Thanks to Elf CrazyKater for offering us a beautiful 2017 Starsky & Hutch Calendar to help get us through the entire year! Download the PDF calendar at the S&H Archive and enjoy.
Here it is, the final door of the Advent Calendar. We have four special gifts to finish out the calendar thanks to Elves Hardboiledbaby, Ksstarfire, Mvernet & Spencer5460, and one last gift from Suzan. It's been an amazing Calendar and we have all of you to thank for it, for your contributions, your stories, your art, your poems, your fun games, your vids, your puzzles, and especially for all your comments. Your participation has been astounding and very rewarding. All of us here at AC headquarters want you to know how much we appreciate your enthusiasm. It's been wonderful.

All of us wish all of you a wonderful holiday however you celebrate it.

And here we go! It is the eve of Christmas Eve. Can you believe it? The Advent Calendar is quickly drawing to a close! I feel like we just started. But the 1, 094 comments on the Advent Calendar tells me we've been at this for awhile. So, on the eve of Christmas Eve we have three lovely gifts for you from Elves Amber Raine, D.P. Patricks, and Ksstarfire. I know you'll love them.

Today we have three lovely gifts as part of Day 22 of the Advent Calendar. Elves Hutcherie, Dawnwind, and Mvernet and Spencer5460 have put together some interesting and fun gifts for you today. As the Advent Calendar winds down, you should know we have exceeded 1,000 comments, which is super impressive considering that we still have three days to go! Awesome!

Four. More. Days. We are truly in the homestretch now. And on this day 21 of the Advent Calendar, we have four different gifts for you from our hard-working, talented elves. We can thank Elves Wightfaerie, Wanda, D.P. Patricks, and Ksstarfire. Now that's a cluster of talent to get any SH fan excited. Enjoy!

We've just gone over 870 comments, folks!!! Pat yourselves on the back. It might be an Advent Calendar record. I know all the creative elves really appreciate it and those of us putting the Advent Calendar together do too. Today we have three lovely gifts thanks to Elves Dawnwind, Profdrlachfing, and Mvernet and Spencer5460. I know you'll just love them.

I also want to take this chance to remind everyone that the organization and physical construction of the Advent Calendar itself, including the construction of every individual gift page, all the landing pages, and every viable link is due to Cyanne's WordPress wizardry, and all the wonderful graphics, including the backgrounds, banners, and Calendar homepage were donated by Suzan. I was afraid I'd forget to mention it as the Calendar pages draw close to the end. Yeah, and I'm still trying to get my shopping done! I'm such an underachiever!

Our elves have been so busy this year! Today we have four special gifts on the Advent Calendar thanks to Elves Wightfaerie, Anachron, Mvernet, and D.P. Patricks. Drooling, aren't you? And what could be better after a hard day of Christmas shopping than four delicious morsels just for you? Only 5 more days! Enjoy them!
