I’m at Buford Middle School today with Media Specialist Lisa Hallman. We had a great time.
Art Teacher Scott Kendrick was instrumental in getting me to the school. Scott’s students wrote and illustrated cool alphabet books with photographs, which they are going to give to a daycare down the street. Scott made me a cool elephant, which I’m going to put on my desk for good luck.
Last night I had a surprise visit from my good friend (and author) Jerry Pallotta. He was speaking today at a school not far from here and swung by the hotel with Joan Stevens for a late Mexican dinner. It was great to see him and Joan again. You can find out more about Jerry on my favorite links page, but the page doesn’t tell half the story. Jerry and I have been friends for many years and have a long history together.
After school I had a whole gang drive me to the airport. I’m headed to Missouri, but the the flight to Atlanta is delayed due to weather, but I think Scott’s elephant is going to bring me luck and I’ll get out of here to catch my connection.
