On February 18, 2023 I was initiated into the International Order of Hoo Hoos. (Kitten #102013.) It is a faternal Lumber organization started in Gurdon Arkansas in 1892.

The mock electrified chair had nothing to do with my initiation.

The Board of Directors were excited that i had written the Hoo Hoos into the story line of Elderberry Summer. It was a hoot. And they each bought a copy of Elderberry Summer.

Next year during Womens History Month I will give a talk on the Hoo Hoos at Garland CO Library.
