Independent Means

Deep fried food, very patriotic, I think. So is wearing your bathing suit under your clothes, and getting your feet dirty in the dust of a campsite. I'm on top of all those things this 4th of July. Yesterday I bought Ron Carlson's new novel, which I am sooo excited to read, and one of the blurbs said that in 2006 GQ Magazine named Ron Carlson "One of the Great Things About America". Surely Willie Nelson was on that list too?

I promise to say hi to him for you. Have a great Fourth!

I heard a very positive review of Ron Carlson's book on NPR the other... on somebody's list of best summer reads. I'll be waiting to read what you think of it.
