In Which DeLand Public Library Hosts Me and My Peeps!

The hometown crowd showed up for me on June 28, when I took my dog-and-pony show to DeLand Public Library. I am very grateful to librarian Susan Fichter (below) who made it all happen. And she and gave me six beautiful, red roses, too! I felt honored, and very welcome. Thank you, Susan.

I wasn't sure what to expect on a Monday morning; as it turned out, it was a homie reunion! Mom and dad came, too. And the people I didn't know didn't throw eggs, so I think I'm safe in saying a good time was had by all. Even my ninth-grade journalism teacher, Jessie Morland showed up. Jessie was the first person to encourage me as a writer, and gave me the space to do it. One time she let me out of class to go outside and write a story beneath a tree. I don't remember WHY she did that. Maybe her class was more manageable without me in it, I dunno.

After the presentation, Jessie took me to lunch along with four of her very accomplished friends (below), none of whom got drunk or cursed. From left to right is playwright Ann Magaha, Helen Johnson, retired Stetson English professor Ellen Smith, Becky Bostic, and Jessie Morland is the one making horns behind my head. (Sigh. You can dress them up...) They invited me to come back in March and speak to their chapter of the Florida Pen Women. I said hail yas.

Thank you, DeLand. It's always great to go home again.

    Hello everyone, I am Evans Torttor from USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to MIKE LARRY for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organizations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Esther to MIKE LARRY LOAN FIRM and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Esther said, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00 USD; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 3% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact MIKE LARRY LOAN FIRM. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {}
