Andrea , nicknamed Andie, had not chosen the straight and narrow. A thief, a drug mule, a check forger, she had several pages of references attesting to ...
This is from the book I am a character in. Emily, my daughter, bought "it" for me at a charity auction - the chance to be a character in one of Archer Mayor's books. He is a Vermont author who lives in Brattleboro. Most of his books are set near there and in other parts of Vermont. It is an ongoing detective series where you follow along with the lives of the characters. He was an author I read and I'm a big reader so this was a perfect gift for me. There is no guarantee as to what character you'll be and mine was rather minor and a bit of a low brow bad ass. Tons of fun for sure. They do put your last name in too. My students were very excited and wanted me to read it but not really a book for the age I teach!
2. I drove to Dead Creek on Monday to see the snowy owl that everyone has been seeing. Well, no go. I did not see it. I'll try again as I would so love to see one. It's not that close so I'll have to find the time another day.
3. Guess what we got? Another kitty - still nameless at this point. He couldn't look more like Simba. He is a rescue cat and it feels good to have given a cat a good home that was living in a cage at the humane society with pit bulls right under him. He's got to be happier here with just two kitties to get used to. They're all settling in and while not friends yet, there's nothing too dramatic. Expect more pictures! 4. I have a race this weekend. I have done the Polar Cap 4 Miler for several years now in Lake George, NY. It is often freezing! The route is changed and I am not sure what to expect. I hope some of the speed work I have been doing on the TM pays off in a small way! I'll get to see Darlene and go to Target. 5. Lots, lots, lots going on at work. I'm going to need to be spending major weekend time on projects. Monday I get observed which I am never relaxed about. I spent a lot of time last night getting ready for that. I don't want to be running around the room looking for stuff and not have all my ducks in a row. But I'm basically ready so I CAN enjoy the race and all that goes with the trip.
I am an "older" runner who didn't start running until I was 50. I got hooked on running and racing very quickly. It's been awhile since I ran a marathon but I do several halves a year. The big news is that this is the year of the triathlon!
