I just finished There’s a Porcupine in My Outhouse by Michael Tougias. It was a very good read. Quick and easy and entertaining. So I finished the book and read the last page listing all of his other books. Here is what the last page says.
“Tougias give narrative slide presentations for each of his books, including There’s a Porcupine in My Outhouse. If you or your local library are interested in his slide presentations or would like a brochure of his books, please write to him at P.O. Box 72, Norfolk, Massachusetts 02056” Norfolk, the guy live about 25 miles from me, I thought, (Then I read further, he actually lives in Franklin, MA, but it is still very close to me.) Then I read more, he has articles published in the Sun Chronicle, our local newspaper. Now I feel I must write to him and find out when he is doing a slide presentation next. Hopefully it is at a library near me.
It makes me a little sad however that my Great-Uncle Richard had this book and it was signed by Michael Tougias, I didn’t know that Great-Uncle Richard enjoyed books like this. I wonder if he met Michael or it was a gift or if he even read the book, and I never will. That made me sad at the end of this book. I’d have like to have talked to Great-Uncle Richard about what he thought of the book. Talk to your family members about the books they read, you may find that you have alot in common with them, do it before it is too late.

I had the Jones Soda too. It is pretty tasty stuff.
Went to this restaurant tonight called the cork and cleaver. The menu was on an actual meat cleaver. One of the heaviest menus ever.
