BOOK TOUR UPDATE
We had an excellent event tonight at Books and Books in Coral Gables. There was a great crowd, which included a major snake. Really. This thing was enormous, and Ridley and I had to try to read from our book while it slithered around on us, checking us out as if we were a human buffet. I will post photos of this when I get them and have changed my underwear.
Meanwhile, here's a CrapCam photo I took of Ridley in front of a drugstore that is observing Halloween by putting a huge inflatable Grim Reaper in the window. That's certainly what I want to see in my drugstore: a symbol of death.
UPDATE: I see Judi has already posted photos (below) of Ridley and me with the snake. The snake's name is George, and its handler, Tom, did not seem overly concerned that George was wrapping himself around us. In the second photo we are trying to not appear overly concerned about this while we gamely continue reading, but we are both thinking, quote, "Yikes."
UPDATE UPDATE: Here's some video from Andy The TropicHunt.com Guy.
