Texas Library Association Conference

In Austin, and Spence will be there for the next 3 days. Tomorrow he’ll be part of Readers Theater 10:30-noon at the 6th floor conference center. Thursday he’ll be signing Chet and Bernie at the Simon and Schuster booth from 9-10; signing WOOF at the Scholastic booth from 2-3; followed by a panel at 3 on middle-grade fiction.

Not open to the general public, but maybe some Texas librarians are reading this.

    We saw it too, Howlers. 155 year Anniversary for the Pony Express.

    Have a great time in Texas, Spence.

    Time for a short walkie, and then Barb is heading to the office. Nice sunny day here, mid 60s and no wind.

    Have to mail some stuff off to the IRS. Whine, whine.

    Wet and chilly here.
    Have a good time in Austin, Spence.
    Good morning everyone.

    I’ll check out the Google Doodle.

    Good morning all.

    Greeting everyone.
    The Corgis are off in a corner looking through their trunk of mission disguises. Can anyone tell them what a Texas Librarian would look like?

    WooHoo! Mom got good news from her mortgage company. Her bill went down a little bit. Usually when they do the escrow analysis, Mom would have to write a big check to cover the deficit then the payment would go up. This year, no deficit and a lower monthly bill. The little bit extra is going into the “north to Alaska” fund!!!

    Hello..feeling better since the internal bleeding stopped..but I think this place is a bit much of me. Slowly getting it ready to sell.

    Melanie is 61 today and probably celebrating by getting a peek at the little animal on the Chet and Bernie book.

    Western Corgi…Give her a Book
    and she’s Good to Go.

    Zoe! We didn’t know you weren’t feeling Tip Top.
    Good to Know you are Feeling Better.
    Sending Love & Hugs.

    10:43 am on April 14th, 2015

    A Texas librarian would look like Laura Bush.
    Zoe, I think it is a good idea to sell. Those big old places are beautiful, but expensive and hard to keep up.

  12. B.Stover
    10:48 am on April 14th, 2015

    The picture of the Western Corgi is great!

    I’m glad you’re feeling better Zoe.

    Zoe, glad you are doing better. Take care of yourself.
    Cowpunching Corgi is great!
    BooBear’s mom, hooray for you!

    Zoe – my heart is with you today. sniffle

    Gilly loves the Stetson. Tupper would prefer the giant back-of-the-hair bow.

    Spence, have fun in Texas! Austin is a nice city.

    Zoe, Good to hear from you and glad you are feeling better.
    Selling your house would make life easier for you.

  17. BooBear
    12:48 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Zoe, just make sure you keep enough room for Mac and Dan the Dog!

    Glad you are feeling better. Don’t work too hard. I know your family will be happy to help you prep the house.

    Martha has a cottage back of her house. It is small, but we took the dogs over on Saturday and they fit. Dan found lots of things to get into.

  19. Masquers

    Zoë: The cottage sounds lovely. It is comforting to have loved ones nearby.

    Zoe, thinking of you and Melanie today and always. A cottage in back of Martha’s house sounds divine. Keep feeling better.

    Hope Spence has a good time in Austin.

    Good day to everyone.

    Zoe, Dan is a goofy Newfie pup. Of course he will find things to get in to.
    Darah’s thoughts (and she is just 2) “Tasty pool. Like the one with the sushi better.”

  22. Siber's Mom
    1:54 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Zoe, A cottage on Martha’s property sounds ideal.

    Darah, Cute!

  23. BearSpiritDog

    That Darling Darah Loves her Pool!

    Who’s an adorable Corgi?

  25. Herd of Hounds
    6:29 pm on April 14th, 2015

    BSD, that Darling Darah loves ANY pool! And WE will bet that Mac and Dan love almost any water they can find too…bathtubs included.

  26. Herd of Hounds
    6:39 pm on April 14th, 2015

    If those Corgis get any cuter, we’ll eat a bug.

    Is that silly Royal Gilly?

  28. Tupper's Mama
    7:00 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Yup, that’s a Gilly Flower

  29. Tupper's Mama
    7:01 pm on April 14th, 2015

    And with her best buddy too

  30. Herd of Hounds
    7:07 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Tupper’s Mama, those 2 gals are so cute together. We just can’t believe the size difference!

  31. Herd of Hounds
    7:31 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Tupper could stand on the Gilly and ALMOST make a Callie gal. Wow. Callie is still a gorgeous gal. No wonder Gramps is so fond of her.

    Dear Zoe,

    If your would refrain from bleeding internally or otherwise from this point forward, we would consider it a personal favor.

    Your pals,
    The Thieves—dubbed lovable miscreants by Melanie—of Snowhook.

    Glad to hear Zoe is feeling better. Happy thoughts of our friend on her birthday. I had breakfast at mcDonalds with my Gentleman Friend this morning before work. Tomorrow I have the day off so no telling what mischief we will get into between his morning crossing guard duty and the afternoon one,

    Birthday!….I have had my other special friend on my mind all day today..sniff!….Happy Birthday to one of the best friends I never met. I do feel as if I knew her through and through…snuffle!….Beau says her Cake in Heaven will be glorious!…heh!

  41. BearSpiritDog

    We Remember those Wonderful Pictures.
    We will never stop missing her.
    She was One of a Kind.

  42. Herd of Hounds

    Hapy birthday to the best friend we never met but love unconditionally.

  43. Herd of Hounds
    10:32 pm on April 14th, 2015

    And Tupper’s Mama, thank you for the fotos of our friend and her family

  44. Masquers
    10:33 pm on April 14th, 2015

    No doubt our Friend is very busy these days…watching over little River and Zoë and laughing at the antics of Dan the puppy.

  45. Wolfie
    11:35 pm on April 14th, 2015

    We remember those photos also. Sniff. She was wise and wonderful on this side of the Bridge, and no doubt she is even more wise and more wonderful on the Other Side.

    11:35 pm on April 14th, 2015

    Today is Coach’s birthday, too. We always thought our Heartfriend and the father, not the dog had great taste in days to be born. Tomorrow isn’t a bad day to be born either if one was so inclined.

    Tupper’s Mama: Thank you for the wonderful photos of our friend. I didn’t know she could drive a back hoe! She would be over the moon to see the picture of River kissing Dan. That is called “bringing baby up properly.” What a great time she had at the wedding. The bear is so colorful and the women are radiant. A toast to our friend, forever young.

    Zoe: Listen to the Thieves, they would not steer you wrong. Martha’s cottage sounds like it will be just the thing for you and the Newfs.

    Love to you all and goodnight.
