Memory is the first thing to go

Remember back here when I mentioned that my niece Brittney, when she was about 5, provided this quote I used on the back cover of “APPEELING?”

“My Uncle John draws pictures and then you laugh.”
– BRITTNEY, niece

As I said, she’s now 19.

I saw her at Christmas, gave her a copy of the book, had her turn it over and read the quote…she had no recollection of saying that.
