Kenn Anderson Sr on the HMS Bounty

Tuesday is not my typical blogging day. I admit to flying by the seat of my pants and struggling for a routine. With NaNoWriMo over, that is slowly coming back into my line of sight. For now, my focus has shifted wholly to assistant editing. My writing partner Robin Lythgoe is about to release her book As the Crow Flies on December 10, 2012. Be on the lookout for that!

See the cover? Awesome isn't it? e

But there is a wonderful podcast interview I wanted to take time out to let you know about. The interview conducted by David Maderia on 94.3 FM (The Talker) is with a friend of mine, Kenn Anderson Sr. about the HMS Bounty and the First Friday Memorial Display (photographs and artifacts) in Scranton at the Care Net Crisis Pregnancy Center. I very much enjoyed listening to the podcast and think you will too.

Listen here: Ep 123 Hour 3: The Legacy of the HMS Bounty

If you are in Scranton PA this weekend, please head on over to the Memorial Display: 

I'm very much hoping to be there myself. There will be a few artifacts, Kenn says, and photographs of the famous ship and those (famous and not-so) who sailed her. An opportunity to reflect, to be thankful for the lives spared and for closure for those who knew and worked with Captain Robin and Claudene as well as those of us who wished to yet never got to see Bounty.


  1. So sad about the Bounty. What a loss, both life and history... I've enjoyed the insights you've steered me to. Thanks for that, and thanks for mentioning my book again! I don't know what I'd do without you, Assistant Editor, Co-conspirator, Chief Propper-Upper, and Head of Comic Relief!


    You know you're next, right?

  2. "Yes, you're next. You're so next!" I do know. Scary stuff, but exciting, isn't it? What terrific decisions were made that began that May...

    I keep being shown, over and over -- by several people and circumstances -- how God brings hope and even joy from pain and loss. My prayer is to always be thankful for what he does - and in that spirit, thank you for sticking with *me*, too. I wouldn't have come this far without you.
