Well, this is what happens when you go to ALA for 5 days in June and then to a 10 day writing class in Vermont during July.
A mother and very worried boy asked the circ department people at my library: "When did Mrs. Old pass away?"
This flustered the circ people.
THEY knew where I was.
But the child and parent were concerned.
If Mrs. Old wasn't in the library, running the Summer Reading Program -- she must have died -- because she's ALWAYS here during the summer.
It's nice to know you're missed.
