Big day for the ego

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I watched myself talking with Joy Robertson on KOLR10-TV from Tuesday’s Ozarks Live:

Kathy Temean gave me an attaboy for my Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Medal at her site:

Greg Holman wrote an article about my 100th book (EMPOWERING STUDENTS’ KNOWLEDGE OF VOCABULARY) that previewed in the News-Leader’s e-edition at this link:

Later in the morning the folks at Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Festival sent me the video taken when I accepted the award.

I tried to take a selfie but couldn’t get all my smile to fit in.

    • Thank you, Joy. I appreciate it. Everyone, if you don’t know Joy, we met when she attended a poetry workshop I hosted in Pennsylvania in 2011. Later she and her hubby moved from Arizona to Hawaii so we haven’t met in person in many years. She’s a poet and also a humorist and gives public talks meant to tickle. She and Matt Forrest Esenwine joined me in brainstorming those virtual parties I (and sometime Matt) throw. So thanks for everything, Joy.

    • Good morning over there, Su. Any more snow on the horizon? The article came out in this morning’s paper so I’m still smiling.

      • No snow on the horizon, but I have a layer on my car this morning. Really need to park in the garage again! Ha!
