I received this "painfully" hilarious message via facebook. Could I possibly ask for a more devoted reader and one with such a great sense of humor?
i am kaeleen ringbergs mom and you are the reason i cannot type capitals.
i know you are a writer and can appreciate a good story -- so here goes.
i have always loved the bayfield/ashland co sheriff reports. they are hilarious. i have said many times that someone should compile them and put them in a book. so obviously i was delighted to see the ads for your new book.
fri afternoon i made my list of 4 errands i had to run downtown. the first two i executed without event. my third errand with 20 percent off coupon in hand was to cross the street from the brownstone center to the bookstore to buy your new book.
i didn't quite make it, stumbling on the kinda curb, i flew across the sidewalk until my head collided with the bookstore and stopped me. i broke my head, broke my right arm-why no caps, have a rather spectacular blackeye and hurt my back. as the emt's checked to see if i had full possession of my faculties kristen assured me they would still honor my coupon at the store. so to wrap this up my husband gordy went down to the store on sat with the bloodstained coupon and purchased the book for me. i realized i may end up in volume 2 since i no doubt will be in the paper next week. the book is wonderful and has made me laugh throughout this miserable weekend.
in case you wondered errand 4 was the wine shop which at this point i wish was errand 1. -- mary brigh ringberg
I am happy to report that Mary can once again use caps.
Include Mary in Volume Two? Heck, I think I will have to DEDICATE it to her!
The bloodstained coupon was used at the Apostle Islands Booksellers in Bayfield, Wisconsin. "Cow in the Road ~ Bear in the House" is available on this site (BOOKSTORE), on Amazon.com and at local bookstores.
