Tanya Writes About...Thomas the Train

Whew. It's another sleepless night. I get them sometimes. Today was so fabulous in so many ways only to end with some bad news about a loved one. Sucks.

Yeah, I got my book shipment today, and Marrying Minda is beautiful!
Nicola Martinez designed such a stunning cover...and my hero was ecstatic, promising to read it instantly.

And I had a marvelous day blogging at Petticoats and Pistols, about Minda and the inception of the story.

But night came. I recalled another wonderful day recently, taking the grandbaby to Thomas the Train. If you know any little boy under ten, you know Thomas. We've got boxfuls of tracks and trains loaned to us by the dear boys next door who outgrew Thomas but are saving the huge investment for their own kids. When the antique railroad in Fillmore brought a Full-Size, actual Thomas the Train engine to town, well, we had to go.

A good time was had by all. If only I could see the world through the eyes of a child again, when the only worry was the next toy or cookie. Or tunnel!

Visit my website...I just updated it too. Another sleepless night thing.

Happy release day, Tanya!

What a cutie your grandson is! My older son was a Thomas fan when he was little. His favorite was Percy, because his favorite color is green ;).
