Somehow I forgot to post Joe Simon’s 96th birthday yesterday. I did not forget his birthday as I visited him Saturday. But Joe downplays his birthdays and does not want to make a big deal about it. He is in good health and still rather active. He is scheduled to appear at the Wizard’s Big Apple Con on Friday, health permitting. No mention of time. Joe rarely makes convention appearances and when he does they generally are rather short. Not so much because he gets tired but rather because he gets bored. So if you go to the Big Apple Con keep and eye out for him.
