The headline acts have recently been announced for Bonaroo, the mega Music and Arts Festival held near my home and office every year in June. In normal times I could make the drive in 20 to 30 minutes. During Bonaroo, however, it would likely take that long to get in the gates. A lot of others will be there as well. Lots of folks travel hundreds of miles to get there, spend big bucks and stay up long hours.
But this venue is not my ‘cup of tea’ (a common phrase found in Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions). The new and improved version is now being sold in paperback on my website at stclairpublications.com and on Amazon around the world. I have been waiting over a week for my first order of them to get here from my printer in South Carolina, and it seems like it’s been a ‘month of Sundays.’ UPS assures me that they will arrive day after tomorrow, and I am waiting ‘with bated breath.’ My friend, Kelly, from the radio station called me this morning just after I had returned from my aerobics class about another matter, and informed me that one of his other friends had borrowed his copy of my book and would likely be in touch soon. They are ‘selling like hot cakes,’ and I’m ‘tickled pink.’
