Story Time

Ben got four new books this weekend! Two from my mom that were written by a friend of hers, and two written and illustrated by a pilot that I flew with last weekend. My mom's friend actually wrote the book, but I have linked to the illustrators web site as the author doesn't seem to have one. The pilot I worked with, Billy Steers (I always want to sing "Billy Shears..." when I say that) is a constant doodler. He had a little notebook with him that he draws cartoons and captions in - great sense of humor. He started out as a cartographer. What a life; drawing maps, flying airplanes, now writing children's books! I am always amazed by people who don't seem to be slaves to their clocks or schedules. I can't seem to find enough time in one day to vacuum the floor let alone launch another career.
