Frank…the missing pages…..AND THE BOOK…..

"Mrs. Smith, have you ever seen the Austin Powers?"

"Yes, Frank, I have."

"My favorite character if Fat Bastard!"

"Frank! You shouldn't say that word at school." 

"You mean FAT?"

 "No, the other one.”  Then I whispered, “Bastard."

Wide Eyed Frank, "I didn't even know that was a bad word! Huh. My dad calls my dog that all the time."

"Well, how about you just don't say it in school anymore, okay? Okay. "

As many of you know, I placed my fear in a closet and locked the door.  As I prepared for my double knee replacement surgery I decided there was one TINY thing I needed to do before I went under the knife.

I hit Publish.

And now, if you love to laugh, if you want to follow Frank, if you love children, if you WORK with children, if you enjoy reading stories on this particular blog…then you might love this labor of love.

But stay tuned….. for the Book of Stella…..

Hey, Girlfriend!!

How are you feeling? How did the surgery go? I suppose I should have actually just emailed you, huh?

Hope your recovery is swift!!

Oh my freakin' hell!!!

My copy of the book just arrived, and by the second page, I was crying. I can NOT believe I just saw my name in a "shout out." I am so moved by your sweet gesture. It was so unexpected. My jaw literally dropped, then the tears started.

I love you, Girlfriend!!
