Book Tour Day 2 & A Chicken

My cab is on the way to pick me up for an ungodly early flight to Debver, so this will be a quick summary p0st.

Day Two = two middle school visits, one diner connected to a school library, one electric car, four cats, a couple chinchillas, a bunch of birds, many, many nice teachers.

And a chicken.

Signed stock at two stores in the afternoon, did a phone interview, and headed for Wild Rumpus, one of the coolest children’s bookstores on the planet.

There is a menagerie of animals at Wild Rumpus, including ferrets, chinchillas, birds, a rat, a few other things I know I’m forgetting, four Manx cats who stroll and patrol the aisles.

And a sweet and pretty chicken named Pimento.

  1. Happy Birthday!!
    Maybe you and B.H. (that’s Better Half, right?) should consider a chicken coop in the tundra. Still laughing at ThunderCHIKIN’s comment.

  2. Wishing the Mad Woman in the Forest a sweet and sane birthday. Celebrate yourself. Your talent is why we celebrate you.

    Yours in creative solidarity, always,
