    Interview with Scott Mullins on radio station
    WFPK 91.9 FM, Louisville.

    For those whom may not know, Scott Mullins is our very own BourbonitisBlues. He was also a judge with me at the Four Roses Manhattan Contest last fall. Here's to Scott for giving Chuck, and the site, a little love

    If you're not in Louisville you should be able to listen to the interview on the radio's website: WFPK.org

    UPDATE: I guessed that the Borders event on Sunday, 9/19, would be two hours. I have since learned that it is one hour, although if there is a line around the block no one will be turned away.

    Despite your generous shipping coupon for us forum members, we elected to hold out until the festival in anticipation of an event like this. Supporting an independent bookdealer in a small town makes the purchase even more satisfying. Look forward to seeing you there!

    We'll have to warn you, though: given Tina's delicate condition, if there is any shoving, stampeding, or trampling going on, we'll have to leave.

    I asked them to be sure to have ropes, so we can establish a neat line out on the sidewalk.

    Chuck, Do you have a roadie yet? I can be on hand to pour your drinks, step and fetch, open crates of books and to keep you with a ready supply of fresh pens!

    I'm a little old fashioned. I need a quill sharpener.

    If you go that far back I could see you sealing envelopes with wax and pressing a signet in it, but then again someone might take issue with the wax!

    True story. I did have a wax sealing kit when I was a kid and thought it was the coolest thing. I'm either a throwback, a nerd, or both.

    I still use my wax sealing, using my signet ring of my family crest. Makes the Post Office crazy.
