Help! (I need somebody)

Not just anybody, but someone who has a copy (or quick access to a copy) of any of the following books:

  • David Rivard, Sugartown (Graywolf)
  • Sally Ball, Annis Mirabilis (Barrow Street)
  • Wyn Cooper, Postcards from the Interior (BOA)
  • Brian Barker, The Animal Gospels (Tupelo)

If this is you, and you're willing to scan and e-mail or fax me a couple pages from the book(s), please contact me ASAP. I'll make it worth your while: I'll send you a free signed copy of one of my books, or, if you have those already (of course you do), two free copies of West Branch.

Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be able to help. Thanks, y'all.

The cold water line to our washing machine has finally thawed! Hooray! No more sharing the laundromat with students! No more T-shirts from the 80s cutting off the circulation in my arms!

I'm still working out every morning on the elliptical machine. Doing my ab crunches and leg lifts and whatnot. Randy says he sees a difference, and I definitely feel better, though I will prolly look like the same old Ron to all y'all when we meet in Atlanta. What's the weather going to be like in Atlanta? Can I wear shorts in March in Atlanta? I haven't been to a decent-sized city in a year. Can you tell I am getting excited about Atlanta?

What on earth are you doing with 20 year old T-shirts still in your closet? Are you the type that can't throw anything away dear?
