    Introduction from Mike Befeler

    I've just joined. I write the Paul Jacobson Geezer-lit Mystery Series, the most recent being Cruising in Your Eighties Is Murder, a finalist for The Lefty Award for best humorous mystery of 2012. Anyone else here writing geezer-lit?

    Welcome, Mike.

    I'm a geezer who writes mysteries. My main characters are a middle-aged couple, but there are plenty of geezers lurking about.

    When you get time, drop in the Old Fart's Bar, Grill, and Infirmary in the Office Party section. Be sure to have a frayed I.D. card.

    Welcome. Let me think on this geezer word you use. hmm. When was I born? ah, never mind. Nice to meet you, in any case.

    Good luck at the conference, Mike. The mystery to me is how Colorado can be considered the west coast. Someone expecting a big tsunami?
