I read that part out loud to my mom while she folded towels--is just about the sweetest thing.

I can really picture the scene. I love when you delve into your youth for these posts. ~Mary

I agree with Mary - what a sweet memory! The things kids remember are interesting. These are my favorite posts.

Yes I agree that was a nice one on one with your mom.

Okay, this is now my favorite of your autobiographical works. The book about plants, the wonder of what you were learning, and then your sharing it with your Mom...wonderful!
Although Pluto is no longer categorized as a planet, we now have the Plutoids, so I think Pluto is getting more attention than it ever did. -Cin

Excellent post. I dialed in on the folding towels part too.

You are really in a groove, Russ. Your posts seem to be a lot 'tighter' creatively and when you do post about actual scenes from your life, you really touch on universal feelings and experiences.

Many of us were fascinated when our science teachers talked about planets in elementary school. Sometimes I wonder why I did not Pursue my dreams of fantasy more, such as becoming a writer for Marvel. I used to think that the comic 'Micronauts' was an idea stolen from me in 5th grade becuase I would make up stories about Baron Karza, Force Commander and all that. Didn't have an 'Enigma Force' but still...

I still think you would be such a hit if you compiled a book of your 'draws'. Who knows... you might earn comparison's to Lynda Barry!
