Mid September ’23

Are you ready for a new puzzle?
Riddle: What is a math teacher’s favorite dessert? 
Riddle requiring a little more ingenuity: Old Grandpa Adams left half his money to his granddaughter and half that amount to his grandson. He left a sixth to his brother, and the remainder, $1,000, to the Old Dogs’ Home. How much did he leave altogether? Answers in the next newsletter.
It’s September, and the trees are beginning to show their colors. The temperatures are in the fifties at night and low eighties during the day. Our dog, like Maverick, will stop and smell the air, I’m sure sniffing out the pheasants. And I’m writing book number seven, (but I may need help with a title when the time comes).
Fortunately, I’ve been busy with books talks, library visits, and author presentations with these coming up:
Little Falls MN Library : 11 am. on September 23
