When the Lord rings my front door

Another Meacham done gone. I read on Friday, just 4 poems, all of them new or newish and in Notes, but nothing from Exit Interview: Nothing; In Praise of the Defective; Concern; At Last. Well received.

I had an especially good time this go-round. I can't quite put my finger on why. The weather was gorgeous, for one. Shopping for reproductions of vintage toy robots helps too.

Strangely, Styx was the weekend's soundtrack. The story is too long to repeat but it involves late night driving around with the truly dreadful "Lorelei" blasting out of the cd player.

Eek.

And there's one story I wish I could tell you. But I can't. It's pretty wacko.

I have a few chapbooks left. If you'd like one, I'll sign it and send it for 9 bucks.

It makes a great trick/treat for Halloween.

Crap. I just got my unsigned, $10 copy in the mail from the publisher about a week ago. No matter, I love it anyway.

I'm with anonymous. What's the wacky story, Paul? I was in Chattanooga, but I missed it.

By the way, we had a great time with you and your family and the kitties and all the Chattanoogans this past weekend. Thanks for being such a great host! Miss you!
