From Rebecca: While Joe is away

Hi, Joe’s readers. While Joe is away at Bear Spring Camps, I will write a few blog entries. This will be the only one this week, and then I will write at least two next week.

I am writing this at the Schlow Centre Region Library in State College, on one of their public computers. This library is one of my favorite places in the whole world. I have been coming here since I was a child. I love books and I love reading. I especially love mysteries. Right now I am re-reading the J.D. Robb series and the Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman. I could browse in libraries and bookstores for hours. My husband also enjoys books and reading, as well as games like Axis and Allies and Dungeons and Dragons.

I am spending time with Keekee, Joe’s cat, while he is away, talking to her, and making sure she has food and water. She spends a lot of time sleeping on top of the refrigerator. She ignores me a lot now, but I think she will want a lot of my attention by the end of next week.

I haven’t talked to Joe yet today, but he called me yesterday just before he crossed the Piscataqua River Bridge and the Maine state line. Those of you who read his first camp book, Picking Up Where We Left Off, will remember that he mentioned that bridge and how much it meant to him.

Joe, if you are reading this from camp, imagine my arm waving at you. Hi, Joe!
