Thunder Road


All right--I'm on my way. Back on the road again; though I get weary and start to complain, I think I belong out there. We ought to get a tour bus. Too bad about all the bad chili, though.

I'll be going to Tucson, then to Silver City, NM. If you're anywhere near there, I hope I see you. We're renting a car and doing some atomic desert driving to get around out there. Fly home Monday night. Teach Tuesday. Get back out to NYC for meetings. Followed by gigs in Kansas, back in Chi, in Pasadena, in L.A. Then book tour really begins, in our beloved Kankakee, Illinois!

Cinderella and I will be keeping up a stream of twitter...uh...tweets? Is that what they call 'em? Twits, twerps, whatever those are, we're doing them. If you want to come along on the adventures between now and August, join me on at Urrealism. (Snappy handle, innit?)

We'll probably toss up some pix for you here.

See you soon.

I signed up on Twitter to follow your travels. But, I'm not too sure how to use it yet. Hopefully I'll figure it out before your tour is over!

Do you have an RSS feed available on your website? I'd love to add you to my Google Reader to keep up-to-date on your updates...

Kankakee?? Lived in K3 County for 50 years! We miss The River.
River, my river, my Kankakee River...
Hope to see you have a signing maybe at my old library. I don't know if the lions are still out front, but hubby & I are too big and old for them now anyway!
