It was in April, 1985, at the Southern Literary Festival at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA, that my publishing-editing partner Carol Schott and I presented a program on “Editing the Literary
Magazine”. The conference went smoothly and after it was over we went to the Holiday Inn Lounge and celebrated. The Shriners brotherhood was holding a convention at the hotel at the same time. Having my two teenage children with me for the event they were in-and-out of the lounge to "check In" with me so that I would know they were OK.
After returning home to Illinois a few days later I heard my son telling one of his friends about what had happened.
"The band was playing a silly song about a robin bird dancing and they were going 'tweet-tweet-rockin' robin. And I looked around for my mom and there she was dancing with a big fat clown."
