She emerges from the Wizarding world, blinking, into the land of Muggles once again...

After a marathon weekend of Owls, Owls, and more Owls, and a complete reading of the last Harry Potter book, Life is back to normal.
Friday Night:
5:00 pm: Leave for RAPTOR to pick up the owls.
6:00 pm: Owls in my car, I head to the first program in Newport, KY.
7:15-8:00 pm: I talk.

8:05-9:00 pm: Driving to next program in Miamisburg, OH (near Dayton)
9:00-9:45 pm: I talk.

10:00-11:10 pm: Drive to last program in Madeira, OH (east of Cincinnati)
11:15-12:00 pm: I talk.

12:05-12:45 am: Drive back to Mt. Healthy to drop off birds.

2:00 am: I fall into bed.

On Saturday, just one program in Anderson township.
I got home as soon as I was able, and waiting for me was my book.
I read until 2:30 am.

Woke up today at 8:00 am, to prepare to drive up with Geoff and the girls to Columbus to visit with friends. I read a bit on the way up and back, and I just finished the book about 45 minutes ago. I will give no secrets. But all the questions you ever wanted answers to at the end of the last book are given in this one.

I look forward to a break from Owls and the car. Well, after this week's programs are done.
I'm very, very tired, but I am off to read what everyone else has been up to this weekend.

You should be in bed. Right now. It's 10:19 p.m.

So I guess it's worth all the hub-bub!

Think any of those kids you presented for will develop an interest in birds past the Potter link?

Sounds like an owl of a time.

Sounds like you should begin teaching a class on speed reading.

LOL< were you able to get a free copy of the book after all that running around with the owls? I bet the muggles just loved seeing you with your birds! I have not started reading the book and probably would take me a zillion potter years to get it done! Too many distractions for me!
