Yeah, this one is the Large print Edition of Lassie Come Home, so it should
be an easier scan because of that.  smile.

I have a story to go with this book.

My library, is a tiny local library, so selection is limited but the staff
are absolutely wonderful.  Anyway, about two years ago, there was a Summer
Reading program, about private eyes, and one of the activities was a
bulletin board of prominent figures in the community reading you know.
So... I show up one day looking for books for Bookshare and me, smile, and
the one children's librarian asks me if I would pose for a picture.  I
didn't have a Braille book on me, so we compromised on the Large Print
edition, as you know some of us guide dog handlers read that too.  So we
took the picture for the wall.  And in the picture it looks as if Judson is
reading the book with me.  She got his head at just the right angle.  Really
cute.  We still have a copy around here somewhere, smile.

So, I figured it is about time to actually read the book I was "Caught
reading to my guide dog"  smile.

Never let mistakes or wrong directions, of which every man falls
into many, discourage you.  There is precious instruction to be
got by finding where we were wrong.
