Mill Creek Upper Elementary 4


That little elephant’s luck held long enough to get me to Atlanta, but then he went out into forest to eat and took his luck with him. Without going into the all too common flying glitches, I got to the hotel in Belton, MO at 2AM with the help of the smart Marie and a limo driver. I feel pretty good considering the short night. All I have to do now is figure out how to get to Mill Creek to speak without a car. I’m sure something will turn up…

Made it to the school and had a blast with the 5th and 6th graders, their wonderful librarian Lee Ann Kershner, and teachers. They laughed at my jokes, which I always find attractive in a crowd.

After the presentation and an Italian lunch with several local librarians I headed up to St. Joe where I’m speaking tomorrow.

    We really enjoyed your visit to Mill Creek. Our class read Elephant Run and loved it! Your jokes were very funny. Our favorite part was your stories about Billy. Thanks for coming!

    Mr. Smith,

    I Just wanted to stop and say what a pleasure it was to drive you to the hotel and St. Joseph the following day All while you sat up front with me, definitely a first and probably the last). You are a very down to earth man!

    P.S. I am still pondering that 10,000 hours!

    Very Respectfully,
