"Ohio Triangle"

an announcement today from John Burroughs.

& here's what I wrote on Facebook:

it's a bit difficult to realize that I have another birthday this weekend. & I know all my dear friends are pondering what to get me. instead of the festoons of flowers & chocolates & jockstraps I usually receive I have a humble suggestion. please purchase a copy of my new book. I've been working on this collection for more years than I like to admit. but I'm so proud of this book. nothing wd make me happier this birthday than to share it with you.

& for my friends across the pond my publisher informs me that you can save international postage by ordering from yr own country's Amazon.
