Even at my non-famous level (9 out of 10 times no one recognizes me at the Farm & Fleet) (and then half the time it’s a relative, neighbor, or Moose Country 106.7 listener), my calendar is such that I meet many, many thoughtful people in passing and simply cannot do justice to their kindnesses or adequately recognize their hard work or support their latest project the way they might hope. I keep a box of books and notes and CDs and miscellaneous objects given to me on the road, and when I can I jot a note or make a mention. Thus, Posts from the Box.
Over the years I’ve received emails, music, and blue-collar handshakes from a tall guy who turns out to be a veterinarian and has just published his first book, more about which right here.
And then the other night after dinner we had a full table of family (hello, Colorado crew!) and everyone (from youngest tot to oldest, ahem, bald-headed dad) was giggling and laughing as I read “Little Rude Riding Head,” “Bean and the Jackstalk,” and “Dincerella,” from a book by this guy.
