Busy, Tiring… but Fantastic
Posted by Stephen R. Bown

Another busy day of driving today and talking today. I’m amazed how tiring it can be. The school in Vernon was fantastic. The kids were really keen with endless numbers of great questions that kept both Karen and I talking and reading. One student asked several unusual and off-topic questions about zombies and I replied that the only zombie I knew was myself when I hadn’t had my morning coffee yet, but I don’t think he appreciated the joke. I would say that visiting the schools has been just a fantastic experience.

There is one hilarious event that has to be mentioned. It happened yesterday (I think, time seems very fluid on tour). We were discussing Readers Digest and how they like to edit everything in half - Andreas was telling a story of how he once wrote for them. They told him that he was getting the best editing in the world and that people love it that way, really condensed - or something like that. Bryan then quipped that he really enjoyed their novels, the Tale of One City and the Two Musketeers. Very witty, as they say. Tomorrow Kelowna and Vernon.
