Bad news first: My kids just left for home. I miss them already. Their stay was too short, but the oldest grandson (8) was feeling poorly so they decided to leave a day early.
Good news helps overcome the separation blues: An e-mail was waiting for me in my mail. My article, "Traveler," has been selected to appear in Chicken Soup for the Soul: What I Learned from the Dog. The book is available in bookstores September 22, 2009. Why don't you order one. You know you want to.
Happy reading and writing, all.
