Started in Battle Creek, drove to Ann Arbor, then drove to Kalamazoo, You can look it up if you want. They have great radio stations here. It almost made up for my rental car that REEKED of cigarette smoke. Ack. Puke.
Note to Hertz: We have smoke-free planes, hotel rooms, restaurants, bars, dorms, airports, casinos, shopping malls and grocery stores. It is past time to offer smoke free rental cars.
When I arrived at Kalamazoo, I was picked up by one of the best YA librarians in the country, Kevin King. He took me to dinner at the Spicer Residence, home of Ed, Anne, Antoine, Penni, Max, and dog Betsy. They gave me my first home-cooked meal in a very long time and filled my heart with joy. The food was excellent and the company even better. A deep bow of gratitude in the direction of chez Spicer.
If I can keep my stupid cell phone connected for more than 10 seconds at a time *grumble* I will finish talking to my Beloved Husband right now, then crash. Busy day tomorrow speaking at Kalamazoo Central High School and Loy Norrix High School. Tomorrow night, Terry Trueman and I will be speaking together at the gorgeous Kalamazoo Public Library, from 6:30-8:30pm. Come one, come all!!
