Having a healthy imagination, I will often throw myself into a tizzy regarding the latest scary thing out there. In the past this has included spinach carrying the e coli bacteria, lack of fiber in my diet, and the economy.  My latest tizzy? This . . . (Bugs in photo are larger than in real life.)...

Hmmm . . . when we last left off, I was Dining with Dudes, including Bruce Hale.  Why Bruce? Because we were speaking at the MOST MARVELOUS Cerritos Public Library in California . . .   Here's Denise Doyen, Peeps and Moi, and Bruce . . . It was fun acting silly at the Children's Authors Faire...
