The first summer of freedom...just flew by, jam backed as it was for me too. I'm glad I got to attend one of your events! Wasn't the whole summer just WONDERFUL?

Dawn, you came a long way to visit Dog Ears Books, and I certainly appreciate that. It was really good to see you in person, too, when so much of the year we have only virtual conversations. I enjoyed your summer of freedom vicariously. Can't believe asters are already blooming....

I guess I should resign myself to fall. Reluctant to let the summer go.
