October in Maine

This is such a gorgeous time of year in New England and I wish I could have stayed up in Maine longer, but had too many trips to make this fall. (And a Patriots game to go to tomorrow!)

But my son took his two boys, 8 and 11, and three mountain bikes, up to Acadia National Park for the weekend. (Luckily they have a hotel with an indoor swimming pool because the weather forecast was for rain today).  For those of you who don't know Acadia---or haven't watched the Ken Burns series on National Parks this week ---it is one of the truly beautiful places in the USA, maybe the world; and we have several billionaires, including John D. Rockefeller, to thank for its existence.

Apparently the guys are undaunted so far by bad weather because my son just sent these two photos from his iPhone:

Boys Oct

Now I will start sound like a travelogue. But I assume they will go (probably by car, not bike), weather permitting, to the top of Mont Cadillac, the highest peak on the north Atlantic seaboard, and the first place to view sunrise in the USA.


(They didn't take this photo, not in the rain. I got it off the internet)

I plan to get up to the farm the end of this month, to get some uninterrupted work time, and to see the last of the foliage before everything turns brown and gray and stark, and the sound of rifles will mean that deer hunting season is  in full swing.

UPS has just delivered a small package which contains the ARCs (advanced reading copies) of my next book, coming in the spring: The Birthday Ball, with Jules Feiffer's charming illustrations.  No profundities in this book, no thought-provoking passages, just pure fun. A romp. Here's a peek:

They were VERY HIGH LEVEL discussions, Lois, not gossip.
People will think less of us if you tell them we gossiped. (Of course gossip is the beginning of Story!)

Gossip or high level discussions,you two could raise big bucks for charity if you auctioned off the extra seats at your table. What newbie writer wouldn't want to sit and absorb your every word?

I attended Jamboread with three friends. (Three of us are English teachers.)It was a such a pleasure to meet you. And we thoroughly enjoyed hearing you speak--especially on the subject of censorship. We've yet to stop talking about our experience at Jamboread!
