Thank you so much to JC Reilly
for inviting Tammy and I to read at the Decatur Book Festival
once again! It's always such a great time. This year was especially cool, because one of my Cub Scouts attended the reading.
|Of course, I'm in it for the poetry, but you say, "Festival," I say, "Funnel Cakes!"|
|Tammy took some pics and video of me reading.|
|Then, I took some pics and video of her reading.|
|Then, we both took pics of JC Reilly reading...|
|...and Christine Swint.|
|Of course, we got up and strolled around. (Notice the hula hoops in the background.)|
|The threat of rain had me carrying an umbrella, though I used it mainly as a walking stick.|
|While walking, we ran into Sandra Beasley (I Was the Jukebox and Don't Kill the Birthday Girl). She apologized for not making it to my reading, but that's okay, because I had to miss hers. Still, it was nice to finally meet her in person.|
|On the way back to our car, we stopped by the local poetry stage...|
|...and said hello to Collin Kelley and goodbye to JC Reilly.|
|Oh yeah! And we shared a funnel cake! Yum!|

Great seeing you and Tammy today!
Wish I could be there since I live close enough but crowds are impossible for me with my condition and people don't seem to understand that when someone has a balance disorder even the slightest bump can be dangerous for one and all.
I picture a domino effect with me as the initiating fall and the person who bumps into me as the nudging finger.
A festival -- including a book festival -- isn't a festival without funnel cakes. I think it's a federal law.
It was great seeing you too, Collin, even if very briefly. It's too bad our events were crossed this year.
O, I know, Satia. Festival crowds have to seem like a nightmare for you. They're hard enough to navigate without a balance disorder.
I totally concur, Glynn.
Looks super fun to be a poetry couple!
