At Murder by the Book this afternoon, a fan named Pat, who attended my first signing there 25 years ago, brought me 2 cartons of Dr Pepper made with real sugar and bottled in glass. Along with a couple of other little things. A real surprise and a fine treat.
And then I signed something I'd never signed before: a high school annual. John Stover, who was a student at Corsicana High when I taught there in 1963-64 brought his Corsican for me to sign. The photos of me were amazing. I looked about 15. Wow. A long time gone.
If you couldn't be there but would still like to have a signed copy, just click the link above and you'll find the phone number. Give 'em a call, and tell 'em I sent you.
