oh, to be there! alas, no
best success to you, linh--can you record and post your reading? just a thought

Linh Dinh said...

Hi x larry,

If my hosts record it, I'll upload it here. Carlisle should be interesting. It's the home of the United States Army War College and the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. That was the first Indian boarding school in the US. Jim Thorpe was its star.

Linh: man... I'd love to attend the reading. Maybe I missed it, but what is the event date?

I've worked a few fuel spills in Jim Thorpe, one a Home heating Oil # 2 release into river, just 1-month prior to the tourist town's big river festival; fun events such as canoeing, rafting, kayaking, maybe scuba diving in deep parts.

Across the bridge, northeast a couple miles, is Jim Thorpe's tomb and impressive monuments. Once after being beaten-down by cleaning-up a large diesel spill on a tractor-trailer "emergency escape" exit, I lay down upon stone surroundings, fell asleep, had to explain being late to my favorite and All Time #1 Tyrant Manager. As I understand, Jim Thorpe's family lost a court case to take his body home to Oklahoma, but his misplaced remains gave me a good place to hide & rest for a while.

Sorry to digress, Linh, but please let me know the reading date? One never knows, life is mysterious, and I might have the time & means to attend. Dickinson's a law school and you can introduce me as your legal Counsel during excursions! .

Yo Chuck,

I just added date to post. I didn't realize I had left it out. Dementia already settling in, undoubtably.
