WITW is MMC? – El Paso, TX

Actually, Book 7, the Pink line, arrived in El Paso quite some time ago, around the same time as the Brown and Teal lines, but I forgot to post its arrival, mainly because it has been so quiet I think it might be doing a little sightseeing before settling down to be read. To give you a visual of something … Read More

Happy Thanksgiving

Just a quick little post to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a very special time because it allows us all the opportunity to review our lives and realize all of the wonderful things which we have been given. I even think back on those things that were negative in nature and find something to be thankful for … Read More

Elsa – the St. Bernard

Ok, I thought I was done with Elsa stories, but she obviously likes my writing little stories about her. Last weekend Gryphon and I noticed that Elsa was drooling a little bit. Mama noticed too, but she thought it was that Elsa was sleeping so hard she drooled a little bit on the pillow she was laying on. Well, that … Read More

Death of the Book – Not Yet

Being an author, I love books, although it seems somewhat axiomatic to say so. I enjoy holding them in my hands, turning the pages and diving into the world that the writer has created for us. That being said, with the advent of e-book readers the world of books as we know it is changing. There may, one day, be … Read More

The Puppy in the Mirror

We are having a bit of an issue with Elsa because she keeps wanting to bark at the puppy in the mirror.

Music soothes the Savage Beast – AKA – Elsa, the Music Snob

Elsa is a little trying when traveling in the car. She tends to get nervous and barks because she thinks that someone should be comforting her through the entire trip. Well, a couple weekends ago, we took a trip to GrandMuttMaw and GrandPupPaw’s house to visit crazy Daisy and she was yipping on the way there. Trust me, she has … Read More

Contacting Schools

Tonight I started sending emails to middle school language arts teachers to let them know about the Where in the World is Misfit McCabe? project so that they can utilize it in their classes if they would like to. After all, it’s hard to use resources you don’t even know about. I started with local schools, and by that, I … Read More

Elsa the Shar Pei Puppy

As I promised in my previous post, there are some Elsa stories just waiting to be told. This story starts with Elsa getting her operation so that Mama and Papa could register her and get her license. Well, apparently Mama thought Elsa already had her rabies, but she didn’t, so she had to go back to the vet to get … Read More

Much to my surprise, Misfit McCabe Book 4 (the Green line) arrived in Hesperia, CA today.

WITW is MMC? – Norfolk, VA

Once again, not being patient enough to wait, when I heard that Book 8 had arrived in Butler, NJ, I figured that the copy traveling to Norfolk, VA must also have arrived.  This time I had a cohort right by my side kibitzing, and pushing as to whether we should confirm that Misfit McCabe Book 6 (the Teal Line).  It … Read More
