It’s Not All Mary Poppins

This is the view from the back of the bus.

Note the one empty seat? That’s for Emily, who starts next week!

May I Crow a Bit?

My sister called this evening. “Hey, I saw you in Macleans*!”

“It’s out? But it’s not on the website!”

That’ll teach me to be too cheap to buy a hard copy once a week… but, my sister tells me, if you look on page 51 of the November 6th issue, there I am! Cynthia Reynolds, who interviewed me back in August, graciously allotted me an entire paragraph – and a reference to this very blog – in a tightly-constructed 800-word article. Isn’t that amazing??

Why, you may be asking, didn’t I tell you all before? Well, because I was waiting for the article to come out.

And I missed it! Boo.

What brought me to the attention of Ms. Reynolds? That ever-popular Benign Neglect post I wrote back in July.

Macleans. Amazing.

Fame and fortune are is mine. At least a little.
