Not a question, just a thank you.

I just wanted to say thank you.  For being a bright spot in my childhood, and for giving it back again so freely.

I admit, I’ve never read one of your children’s books, but I was listening to the audio tapes of “Fishwhistle” when I was 8, maybe 9. (I won’t say how long ago that was, but it wasn’t long after it’s release)

About 10 years ago, I started looking for copies of the tapes to buy, hoping to transfer them to digital files to listen to on my phone.  The few I could find were priced high enough to fund the next Death Star (well worth it, to my mind, but sadly beyond my means).  Nevertheless,  I kept looking through the years.

Eventually I decided to buy the kindle version for the memories.   I was reading it this evening,  periodically pausing to look up something you’d mentioned, and that’s how I found this page.

And there was Fishwhistle in all it’s wonderful absurdity,  read in a voice I’d found comfort in when comfort was rare, available free to download.

You are a wonderful human being.

Why, yes, I am a wonderful human being, and so are you. Let's meet and have corn muffins some time.
