Peggy Wood (my dearly departed iBook editor) died three years ago today.


On this last day of 2017, I will be publishing a few posts since the year is drawing to a close. First of all, Peggy Wood, my good friend (whom I've referenced several times here on Blogger) is on my mind more than ever, as she died three years ago today. She can be seen in the photo-collage atop this entry (taken in May of 2014) about to make her eighty-ninth birthday wish, which wound up being her last. Her brother, Robert, is also featured in the image.

Peggy edited the iBook version of Words In Our Beak, Volume One (seen below), which Cam and I dedicated to her.


Thankfully, Robert and his wife have kept in touch since Peggy's passing (I've discussed this in a prior blog entry).

Last night I phoned Robert to pay homage to her, and to wish him, as well as his wife, a blessed new year. I am very grateful to have remained in contact with them. Robert has been supportive re the production of the soft-cover version and hard-cover version of Words In Our Beak, Volume One (seen below respectively).


So, it is with great sadness that I tell you, dear reader, that Robert is now in the hospital due to a vertigo-related incident. I do not know the details, Robert's wife was too exhausted to speak by phone, but we both recalled that the anniversary of Peggy's death is upon us. Meanwhile, I hope to have good news regarding Robert in the coming days, but, his hospitalization occurring during this time, means there is someone I'd love to talk with about it, and that someone is Peggy.
