Our last day in Sioux Falls, SD

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Our last bookstore signing on our last afternoon in Sioux Falls at Barnes and Noble (on one corner of the busiest intersection in all of South Dakota!) Chit-chatted with book people and gopher hunters and some aspiring author/illustrators here, and a geneologist. Signed copies of !2 Days of Christmas Dogs and a stack of Discontented Gophers. Spent the late afternoon strolling around Falls Park, and the old downtown area.

One last book-signing in Sioux Falls. It’s been fun, but yow. I am really really starting to miss home. The kids, the dog, the yard, even the rain. I miss everything. Taxi, please!

roadside attractions and wildlife in South Dakota

It was a busy trip but we enjoyed some natural wonders… and unnatural wonders, as well. (Pronghorn antelope on the highway between Rapid City and Pierre, a six foot ‘jackrabbit’ and other oddities at Wall Drug, in Wall, S.D., and a nice formation of geese flying over the award-winning S.D. Historical Society building in Pierre.)
