Publication News! Short article in The Toronto Star's Life section

"This skunk got drunk" - Published in Toronto Star

In August I submitted a short article about my experience with Boomerang the skunk to the Life section of The Toronto Star, as part of an article by Isabel Teotonio about wildlife in the city.

My piece, "This skunk got drunk" is on page 2, featured at the end of her article, "Concrete Jungle." It was one of over 200 submissions by Toronto Star readers.

Thanks, Isabel!

Echo and I are Snoopy dancing today!

      Thanks, Mirka! Even while it was happening and I was so anxious about the possibility of Echo getting sprayed, I could see the humour in the situation with Boomerang.

    1. Thanks, Catherine! Even M's aunt, who doesn't appreciate my humorous poetry, can appreciate my humorous article and is thrilled for me.
