Digging in the Library for Gold; Thanks to Maxi Shelton.


I posted on Facebook about going to the library today.  A writer friend, Maxi Shelton responded with; “Are you just going to get the books on reserve for you?  It’s like a sweet shop, you never know what sort of treasures are waiting.”

I told her I’ve become disciplined, but my local branch manager said, yes there is  gold in Arizona, but none under the library.  It was just renovated and please stop digging.

Maxi had a comeback;  but we all want to have adventures.

I liked that comeback and used it.  Next time, I started digging in the biographies.  I made her nervous with my mining helmet and tools.  The canary made her jump.

Maxi wanted to see the look on the Branch Managers face.  Maxi, I want to do book signings there.  You are cruel, LOL!

Maxi thinks I am the Indiana Jones of the library.  No, that’s why we write.  Someone else drills out the library floor and finds bugs and snakes like Indy does.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
