  1. Myra, it has been AGES since I’ve been able to enjoy your blog! It saddens me 😦 You’ve completely revamped your site since I’ve been here so it took a bit for it all to come back to me! OH, my foggy brain*sigh*

    Anyway, I delighted to see a book here illustrated by the amazingly talented Ruth Sanderson! I was THRILLed to get to meet her and actually talk to her for a while last year. SO fun 😀
