Heather will be signing books for me at the Chapters South Point Store in Edmonton, Alberta, on May 19th from 12:00 till 2:00. If you have a copy of Melvin's Balloons and you want it signed- bring it down. If you don't have a copy yet, come out, pick one up and get Heather to sign it for you. It's also a good chance to tell us your balloon stories.

Sunday,is Mother's Day, and I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in the world. Since I started getting green balloons, I understand what love feels like. Of all the different types of love I see down there on earth, I can feel that the love between mother and child is very strong and special. It makes me feel good knowing that all kinds of special events are being planned to celebrate this love.
If you're trying to come up with a gift for your mother, it seems to me that many of them consider a hug to be the best gift of all! Or you could color a picture of a green balloon and explain why you love them so much.
I see a few balloons being blown up for the event as well! Don't worry if one gets away from you. I'll look after it!
Happy Mother's Day.

Heather and I have been listening to the peepers singing at night. Their arrival is a sure sign of spring and Heather seems pretty happy about that.
I am used to singing with the coyotes since I got all those blue balloons, but I figure I can sign with the frogs too. The ones I see are mostly greenish, although they are pretty hard to spot, especially from away up here. Their sound and color makes me realize how much I love all the sounds and sights of spring.
Heather found a website where you can learn about peepers and listen to their sound. If you can't hear peepers where you are, or to learn more about them, check into National Geographic's website and listen to the audio take there. http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/amphibians/spring-peeper.html
Peepers only sing at night so we keep each other company!
