Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!
I’ve been a little becalmed here on Mel’s Desk–I wound up needing a few weeks off while getting acclimated to my girls’ new school years and prepping for the ALSC Institute, where my boss and I are presenting on Saturday morning! Thanks for your patience with the downtime, and thanks for your patience with all my “round up posts” this summer; they also provided me with some needed mental elbow room.
But now I am sailing off for ALSC this morning and on the horizon I can see time for regular posting again when I return! I still have lots to talk about, and I know I have comments–some very old ones–yet to answer.
I promise not to reply in pirate speak or use a single maritime reference.
