…Annette Bower, after finishing her novel, caught languishing in her bug (which is much more friendly than a blood-sucking mosquito any day–and way cuter). Having recently returned from St. Peter’s Abbey, where she completed the novel, Annette is set to globetrot through North America promoting blue bugs, novels, romance, and Saskatchewan writing.

Here’s me a small time poet thinking about making a run for it in the bug (I’m hampered from a smooth getaway by traffic and someone with a camera).

Annette’s visit to St. Pete’s was productive in other ways, and the Muenster consignment store and the Humboldt Goodwill store coughed up two sets of my favourite luncheon plate/cup sets for next to nothing. Both sets were gifted to me by Annette. Thanks Annette. To see them (and Annette) you’ll have to visit.
