Chapter four is nearing the end. Chapter five is maybe going away or becoming something other than what it is now. Who knows what will be next? I spent some time this morning writing (250 words)on the book and also putting together some materials for a session Rosemary Chance and I are doing on booktalking at IASL in a few weeks.

Since Dolly is sitting right off the South Texas coast, it is a tad cooler here but just as humid. We had some rain this morning and should see some more for a couple of days. Hurricane supplies have, fortunately, not been used since we stocked up for Rita a few years ago.

Laurie Halse Anderson's writing prompt this morning was to make some free associations with the word "spam" (the food). Did anyone else eat this as a child? How about scrapple? Shudder.

Before I fell asleep last night I had some inspiration about a piece of writing I need to begin to tackle soon. It's clever, but I will need much more than that.

Here is a photo from the IRA conference in San Antonio a few years ago. Tim Ditlow took a group of us to dinner with Jack Gantos and Pam Munoz Ryan. Pam sang with the mariachi band. Fun time had by all.

Spam as a child? Definitely. It looks like I'll have time to post about it, too.

SPAM? Oh yeah, of course. I'm from the South. If you can fry it, you can eat it.

Thinking about Spam?
If you want an online taste, go to this website. It's a haiku dedicated to Spam....didn't know why I kept it in my email for two years, but now I'm actually going to use it!! Enjoy : )
