Mouse Attack!!!!

My book signing at the Soo Line Museum was very fun yesterday! Well, except when a former high school classmate of mine pulled a fake mouse out of his shirt pocket to scare me! He’d read the article in the C-I Courier which mentioned my fear of mice. After I got over the initial shock, I have to admit it was rather funny and he got me good. However, I am writing a second book and I have a very long memory!!!!

Ethel and Me!

My friend Carol Meyer’s Mom Ethel is 93. She picked up my book and started reading it and told Carol it was a “scream!” She said it was one of the best books she’s ever read. Ethel was a wonderful person–very intelligent and with great taste!! It was so fun to meet her!! Thank you Ethel–you made my heart happy!!!!


I might have failed to reduce the heat from 450 degrees down to 350 degrees after ten minutes! Oops! Maybe with enough whipped cream….????
