Book Signing--Story Mining

      This Tuesday there is going to be a book signing in Kirkwood. Lots of local St. Louis area writers will be there. The two editors extraordinaire--Linda O'Connell and Dianna Graveman--will be there as well. There will be refreshments, chats with the writers, and pony rides...

(Okay, perhaps I'm mixing this event up with a different event. Don't count on the pony ride part.)

      There will also be readings from several authors. I will be sharing my story about my son and his tattoos.

      "Tat Boy" (I sometimes thought this would be a great nickname for him) is today being honored at a "White Coat" ceremony. He's been accepted into the Doctor of Osteopathy program in Kirksville, Missouri and will eventually be a D.O. (An incredible D.O.--Dr. Fred Duhart--delivered my babies and did the same thing for another one of the WWWPs...Small world, huh?)

      So, come to Kirkwood on Tuesday and be prepared to buy some books, toast Tat Boy today in Kirksville, and be assured: I've been able to mine many stories from my son's experiences, but the excavation process has not come to an end. I'm sure I will get much more fodder as his schooling continues...
