Pug in a Yurt

We are off to Chicago again for a reading at Columbia. Before the big trip (driving) Wally and I got some heavenly rest in our new Writing Yurt. Now, I am patently opposed to becoming a hippie (as per walters request) BUT a Yurt, which is not a "yacht on dirt" as my ever-posh brother guessed,  but a fancy tent with hardwood floors -  is a very wonderful thing. In this photo it looks a bit like a wedding tent prison with the gate...but its more of a vaulted circular room, and that crossed wood gate is the wall. There's screen behind it and canvas flaps that drop down outside for bad weather. Anyway, Walter really liked the Yurt and snored away as I wrote and finished making his NEW super streamlined and utterly AWESOME new Otter Pelt shoe.  It makes the old one look like a meatball. pics soon!!!

Cool YURT dude!

We're glad you clarified what a YURT is....mom initially had visions of Wally sticking his face into a big vat of yogurt or something!!!

NOT good for the wrinkles, man!

Hi Heather and Walter!
Wow, that yurt sounds sweet!! My mom has been busy reading Million Little Mistakes every night before bed. Last night she read it out loud to Dad and he got to pick the path. He wasn't too happy about having a boyfriend named Aidan though... BOL!
