Clucking in Mississippi

I hope you are having as great a day as I am. We are enroute home from our crazy cruise, stopped in Tunica Mississippi. I am at the best library in town! The women here have been more than helpful and friendly. Thank you to Ruth Harris, Head Librarian, and also  Brenda Garrett, Vary McKinley and Patricia Pipkin who are fun, friendly and funny. We shared some great moments, and a lot of laughs. I appreciate their help in faxing my signed contract to Chicken Soup for the Soul, Just Us Girls. My story, Seasoned With a Serious Side of Sass is a tell-all about an adventure with some of my dearest friends...okay and me, too. Thank you Wild Women Wielding Pens for your continual support and encouragement. You all should come with me to Mississippi. The folks down here use different words than the people up north. They say things like Yes, Ma'am and No, Sir and please and thank you. I love this town!

Congratulations, Linda. My story, "My Circle of Friends" (about a book club I belong to) is in that book as well (so far). Lisa Ricard Claro is in it, too. Perhaps we'll have a whole group of sassy writers in that collection...

We hope your trip home is fun but uneventful (as far as bad events).

You sound like you are coming home happy...that is good but I am sure home will look good as well. Enjoy being at home in the next phase of summer. Congrats on a contract!

Congratulations! If I was in Tunica, I would not be in a library.

Sounds like you've had a great day! :)

What an exciting trip, and you gotta love those librarians!

Your library post dovetails beautifully with Cathy C. Hall's post! :) And why am I not surprised that you were sending off a Chicken Soup contract? Those folks need to save themselves a lot of time and trouble and offer you a perpetual contract. LOL Congrats. Sioux and I are slated for that one, too, so far.

Awesome! Good luck to all on making the "final cut" into the book.
