Book Talk

At 9AM ET I’ll be on The Point with Mindy Todd and my friend librarian Jill Erickson, WCAI Cape and Islands NPR, discussing books from our home shelves. Thanks for the suggestions yesterday, at least one of which will be on the show, unless I forget.

    RIO! Grizz and I may have been at Hyde Park with Teddy and his folks when that picture was taken. Hyde Park is about a 90 minute drive (give or take) from where we live. It is a great place to visit!

    Good afternoon to all!

    Ruff draft! Beau confiscated our first draft of a letter to the Storyteller. It read: Dear Leonard, Please help us get out of bible study. We can come and live with you. We have been perfecting our disguises. No one will be the wiser. Pancho will be disguised as a social worker and Lefty will be disguised as Pancho. Your pals, Thieves.

    For some reason, and we are unclear on the details, Beau didn’t think this was proper letter material. No idea why. Luna assures us that even OFA has an editor. We find this hard to believe. We are starting to think that Luna shouldn’t be trusted.

    Miss Wose: Did you see last night’s comments? With you’re wee, neat penmanship with nary a dangling participle to be had, we think you’d make the Storyteller’s day. Are youse ready, willing and able to join in the fun? Beau’s clipboard is at the ready.

    Sneeze!…Just a reminder from my little clip-board about da goings on lately…guffle!snort!

    Thanks to Golinka, we now know that we can send letters to the Storyteller at the below address:

    Leonard FourHawks – CLC
    VA Medical Center
    421 N. Main St
    Leeds, MA 01053

    We can’t get our paws on the name of specific vets, but we can send letters to the address below and the staff will distribute to those in need of lifting:

    Our Honored Veteran – CLC
    VA Medical Center
    421 N. Main St
    Leeds, MA 01053

    We are committing to sending a letter a week to the Storyteller at least until they are no longer in lockdown. And! At least a letter a week to a veteran we don’t know, but love anyway.

    Will anyone see our bet and raise?

    This writing letters stuff is hard. We are this close to licking a stamp and putting it on Wyatt so we can meet Beau’s deadline.

    Beau – we’ll join the fun. Perhaps not a letter a week but certainly more than one, both to the Storyteller and a veteran we love anyway.

    Good job coordinating, Thieves and Beau.

    Stay safe Everybody. ❤️

    Mom isn’t very good at writing letters but this is a special cause so we will be writing to the Storyteller and another veteran. Hopefully, the first letters will be mailed by this weekend.
