Greetings, my dear Bagginses and Boffins, Tooks and Brandybucks, Grubbs, Chubbs, Hornblowers, Bolgers, Bracegirdles and Proudfeet. Enjoy the pipeweed, it's on the house.
For those of you fortunate enough to be in Ireland this week, what a treat awaits. Our very good friends, The Very Most, will be performing two shows, for your very own ears. The first is tomorrow, 12/9/09 in Dundalk, Louth at The Spirit Store. The second is on 12/12/09 in Dublin at Whelan's Upstairs. If you happen to read this, and you happen to go to one of these inevitably fine shows, make sure to give TVM's bass player a pinch and a tickle, (or just a pat on the back), as he is A Seasonal Disguise's own fearless leader, Mr. Z. V. House, moonlighting far afield.
For those many of you who have surely thought, "Gee, I wonder, what's the most fantastic author's name Josh has ever run across in all his many years of working at the Library!"? Well, here's the answer. Radd Icenoggle, author of the fine guide to birds of the Northern Rockies, Birds in Place. I love his parents dearly.
For those of you who requested more beehives, here ya go, sported by ASD's own Karen and Julia...
For those of you inclined to lick metal poles, be patient, now is not the time.
Until next we meet, be sure to only call your mother in the designated areas.
