Herons, Humor and HARRY!!!!!
Many of you may not know this, but Michigan is pretty much a bog. We sit LOW surrounded by lakes, and the ground saturates quickly... there are ponds everywhere—here in Ann Arbor, they were often PUT THERE to divert the vast quantities of ground water away from our basements. Oh, I know... could be worse. In some places they don't even HAVE basements. But anyway, because there are ponds all over town, at least several times a year we have a heron sighting. I love these long-legged beauties. They always make me happy.
I like to laugh... and one of the people who MAKES me laugh has offered to INTERVIEW me... or rather the Hamburglar as translated by me, today over at HIS blog, so PLEASE stop by and see Hamburglar and Hart as hosted by The Powdered Toast Man at Just The Cheese.

These will ALWAYS be my favorite books. I think I benefited from TIMING on these as well. My kids were of an age that I got to read the first four to one, then the other... then reread for the RELEASES of 5, 6, and 7... throw in a couple reads on my own and these are easily my most read books ever. And the more I read, the cleverer I thought they were—so well woven... They even got me WRITING.
