Last night we went and watched Earl Thomas play in Eureka. While I was using the men’s room, I couldn’t help but notice the name on the urinal. Just the day my friend John Maddock emailed me that the Maddock family in England made China. He made it sound like they made fancy plates and all that, but I wonder if there is a connection. Either way, Madstone Maddock has such a good ring to it that John’s either going to have a new nickname, or I’m going to submit the name for a character in the final Harry Potter novel.
