Fourth Grade Varmints

May 10, 2016

Dear Hildie:

I gave my talk and slide show to some little varmints in the fourth grade today. Nice group of kids But there was a pretty little girl with long blonde hair who asked a lot of questions. I kept saying, “Yes ma’am,” until a teacher corrected me and said he was “sir.” Well, if you wear your hair like a girl, expect to be treated like one. Ah, times do change.

In my current novel, I went back to my original draft—I liked the old characters better. Varmints.


Take care.                                                                                                       Love,
