Back To School!

Haven’t had a chance to mention what a great time I had visiting 2 Newark NJ schools last week (Luis Munoz Marin and Rafael Hernandez), talking to 4th and 5th graders about Ruff vs. Fluff (first in the Queenie and Arthur series for middle-graders). Amazingly warm welcome, excellent questions (all of the kids had read at least part of the book – what writer could ask for more?), and very impressive teachers. Many thanks to the My Very Own Library organization for inviting me. “Where did you get the idea?” is a question that comes up over and over in one form or another. I wish it wouldn’t! The true answer – “Out of the blue” – isn’t helpful.

    Sounds like a splendid time was had by all!

    BooBear: YEEP! I sent the calendar the calendar to Huffman, TX. I just sent you an SDD. Hopefully the post office will forward to your new address, or return to me.

    Wose! Mom became friends with the people who bought the house so can have them forward it if the post office doesn’t. The check I am sending to you has the new address for your records and in case it gets returned to you.

    Can’t wait to see it😍

    Plan! I will eat the artisan bread shaped like me. Friend will pin the check to my collar. I will blur to Wose. Wose will give me belly rubs. Wose gets her money and Ole Doc artisan bread. Problem solved.
