We have a title! Micah called today and he has a title for his first book.

Coffee With Apollo.

That is so perfect. I loved it right way, and his brother the illustrator is going to have fun with it. We have the book all written up, we have the dedication and now we have the title. All that is left is the cover and we are ready to go to press.

You all are going to love this book, I do!

Surprise Calls

Some things really make my day and make me smile. One of them is a surprise call from Baby Boy! Micah called today instead of Saturday. He said he was just feeling so good he had to share it with someone before he busted.

He got a great letter as well as a great visit, and he has been moved back to B pod. He is more comfortable there and feels safer for the time being. He can also do more writing there. Easier to concentrate I suppose.

I was so excited that he called because I am almost done with his poetry book, the book with no name so far. I ended up using 60 of the poems he has written, and I must say it is looking very good. Now I am learning how to post his ebook and then you all will be able to see how dang creative and smart this kid is!

Oops there I go again, bragging about baby boy. Oh well I am amazed at his writing and expect everyone will be. Now I have to wait to talk to him until Monday, at least he is happy today.

Good Question

I got a really good question from a follower of the blog on a past post. The person asked if there was anything they could do to help Micah money wise. Actually I am glad they asked.

Right now I am working on getting some of Micah's poetry put on an e-book. Once I get that done if everyone will just buy one it would keep him in the coffee for awhile.

We also appreciate all the help we have received for Micah and most of all he appreciates it!

Obviously he is very frustrated right now and sooo ready to get out of Coconino County, that is a long sit for anyone. Depending on how the election goes tomorrow it may get more crowded and miserable there.

Thanks to all and pura vida!

New Celly

Micah got a new celly this week. And the best part of all, he had coffee!!! I mean to tell you, that kid is a kick when you get a little coffee in him. He had me rolling on the floor when I talked to him Wed. He was doing his normal stand up comedy act and really had me going.

He asked me to apologize to all who have written who he has not answered. He has been out of stamps and envelopes and his mom will not send him money.

I would send him money, but as it is tight am selfish and would rather use it to be able to talk to him.

But he does appreciate the letters, and as soon as his mama puts some money on his books he will be able to write to all his friends. Sorry folks we are working on it :)

p.s. if you have ever seen the movie "Hoodwinked", the little guy they give the coffee to to get things done? That would be Micah on coffee!

Mothers Day

Tomorrow is Mothers Day in the U.S. I do not really enjoy Mothers Day too much anymore. There is a saying that a mother can only be as happy as her saddest child. For some reason on Mothers Day I think a lot about my boy that I cannot see and get a hug from.

The holidays are always the roughest for all of us, and I'm sure they are much worse for Micah than me. He has been super bummed out lately and I am so anxious to get out there and visit him a few times.

I have not seen him for a year now and it has been tough on him. I am just so thankful that his brothers visit and for all his friends that keep visiting and writing.

I have taken to writing him really long, really boring letters of our adventures here in Costa Rica. I think they help him sleep. He has not been drinking coffee due to limited funds so I think sleeping has become much easier for him.

If anyone gets over to see him the next couple of days tell him his Mom loves him a ton and can't wait to get over and see him. He really is a blast to visit with and at least I will get to talk to him on the phone today, can't wait!!!!

Raining Letters

Micah wanted me to send a bit thank you to those who have written lately. He has been a bit down in the dumps and needs all he can get these day. Thanks!
