new beginnings

So, it's a new year and this year I've decided to import a Canadian Squatchie. I really think I could use one around the house. They are tall. I have high ceilings. They are strong. I have groceries. Some of them like to cook. I like to eat.

However, importing a sasquatch is actually a very complicated process. Once a sasquatch has gone through the proper quarantine and given his clearance papers, there is only a 90 day trial period before the sasquatch must be officially declared as claimed. No returns after the 90 days and if the sasquatch is not properly claimed he will be forcibly removed. No money back guarantees.

Hi, Grace,
I saw you speak in 2008 at the Rabbit Hill Festival in CT. I work in the children's dept of my public library and have used your books for my preschool groups. I just read an interview with you yesterday and heard the sad news about your husband Robert. Now today I find your blog and you are getting married again - I am thrilled for you and wish you every happiness! Your blog sounds very positive and upbeat. I love reading all kinds of literature for children and will be interested to see what MG novels you enjoy. (I am and aspiring writer/illustrator too). Thanks for the inspiration and congratulations!
