Franklin Park is at Arcadia...I hope!

I just wanted to extend a big thank you to everyone for being so supportive through the writing of Franklin Park!!! The book was mailed on Wednesday to my editor. Strangely, she didn't receive it yesterday, so I am hoping it beats the snow and gets there today.

Enjoy the snow and go sledding in the park if you have a chance tomorrow!!!!

Two Weeks To Go!!!

I'm in the home stretch of the writing process. If anyone has any last minute archive ideas, especially ones that involve festivals, music, or just people in the park...shout 'em out!

Thanks so much for everyone's support up to this point.

Time-Life Articles on Franklin Park Zoo

This is just a quick post. Google has partnered up with Life Magazine and there are over 10 million searchable pictures available! Of course, I had to check out the Franklin Park situation, because I don't have enough stress in last minute hunting and gathering! I found some great pictures and then some links to some interesting/disturbing articles in Time magazine...,9171,729168,00.html (It's about the murder of an ostrich, and though a location isn't noted, I don't know of another Franklin Park Zoo.),9171,816806,00.html (About the FPZ medical examiner and his heart operations on large mammals),9171,930964,00.html (Mini-obit for George Wright...I did not know he was a pro-baseball player!),9171,745252,00.html (Four "cronies" with Lithuanian last names broke into the Bear Cages and got mauled),9171,786008,00.html (The Kennedy's loved a good date by the monkey cages and the bear dens),9171,729280,00.html (Caged, the stupid eagle will soar no more)
