WHO LIVES THERE?

I am tired of telling stories from the book tour tonight. If anyone is interested you can click here for an update on our time at Square Books and Thacker Mountain Radio.

Last week we were in Oxford, Mississippi. Two days before the football game. The energy and enthusiasm were starting to build.

But I have blogged about the charming town of Oxford and Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner.

I do have an obsession with houses. Always have. Since I was a little girl I have been looking at houses and wondering who lives in there? What does there life look like and how is it different than mine?

This summer Lucy started doing the same thing with me.  We both decided it would be fun to live in a sitcom town. She picked Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  Every time we would spot a house that felt like it could be plunked in Chippewa Falls we would get all excited and start imagining who lived there.

While in Oxford I took a walk and just looked at the houses. If they were not in Mississippi, they could be in Chippewa Falls.

We also stayed in a charming B & B called the Z- Hotel. It was on a residential street – anywhere USA. Loved it!
