Last Monday Stuart Ross and I read to an enthusiastic group of folk who assembled on the east deck at the Ootischenia abode. Beckham, Stuart's dog friend came with his New Denver family and provided the perfect doggie atmosphere when I read my poems from Mexico. They talk about dogs a lot, and Beckham didn't seem to mind.
It was an unseasonably hot day (which is why we read outside) and hummingbirds buzzed the feeders while we read.

Ted held up the donations basket and the twenty-plus crowd was more than generous.
|Stuart's Proper Tales Press published "2 Poems", one by each of us, to mark the occasion.|

My grandson, Kyran, who's almost ten, gave the evening a two-thumbs up. Said if he'd had four hands, it would be a four-thumbs up. We were pretty pleased with that kind of feed-back!
