It’s a whole different take on my world, and I love it! (I’m new at this posting photos stuff, but apparently you can click on the photo to make it bigger because I haven’t figured out how to make them bigger on this page.)
In RV Tour news, mom and pops braved mass protests in the streets and a lost parking garage to set a new personal best of 11 stores in one day. I suspect it wasn’t the parking garage that was lost, but you don’t argue with the woman who brought you into this world, especially when she hadn’t received your Mother’s Day card yet. The tour rolled into Toronto yesterday and landed smack dab in the middle of a Tamil/Sri Lakan protest going on in the city. After a brief and unintended exercising of their right to protest they moved on and notched eleven more stores, and were greeted warmly in each and every one. By now I shouldn’t be surprised at how kind and generous the bookstore staff have been throughout the US and Canada. My parents have reported nothing but positive experiences throughout their many, many visits. To all those staffing the shelves from sea to sea shining sea, you are a remarkable group of people.
