** So Much To Say...♪♫.....Part 2 **

Okay. Let's see if I have time to share some information.

StLBOOKS:  Owned and operated since 2005, by Robin Theiss. I've known Robin for a few years, but only through e-mails, concerning various happenings with the St. Louis Writers' Guild (SLWG), of which we both belong. Robin and I finally met in person yesterday, April 14th, when we had lunch at Kaldi's Coffee in Kirkwood, Mo. She and I hit it off immediately. Don't you just love it when that happens? I do!
Anyway, you don't have to live in St. Louis to shop at STL Books. It is also an online store, which buys your used books, too. Be sure and check it out. Robin is a multi talented person and I highly recommend her!

ST. LOUIS WALK OF FAME:  I've certainly been familiar with this for years, but never realized the extent of famous people that are/were from here! Next time I'm on Delmar Street, in The Loop, I'll have to walk the entire "Walk". Because it's Library Week, I'll mention a few writers, poets, journalists and one cartoonist. Maya Angelou, William S. Burroughs, T.S. Eliot, A.E. Hotchner, William Inge, Marianne Moore, Mike Peters, Joseph Pulitzer, Irma Rombauer, Sara Teasdale, Kay Thompson, Mona Van Duyn, and Tennessee Williams. Impressive, huh?!

That's all I've got time for tonight. I'll be back tomorrow for sure to finish, because I'll be off the internet from early Saturday morning until late Sunday night.

"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library." -- Jorge Luis Borges
