What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
My wife and I saw a marionettist performing at a Book Fair on Fifth Avenue in NYC, and we both were intrigued.

Hey Bob,
Welcome to Puppethub!
Can't wait to read your new book, I love the name of it.
Please tell Elise I said hello

Hi, Bob. I don't think we've actually met, but, of course, I am familiar with you through P of A. Welcome! (I am also one of your friendly administrators here at PuppetHub).

I too am looking forward to your book. I'm a little confused...I went and found it on Amazon.com, but the entry there gives no indication that it isn't out yet (in fact, they seem to indicate a publication date of January 28, 2008). And they say it is in stock. Is this not so?

Rats! I was hoping that somehow Amazon knew something you didn't (come on, it could happen..I often find that major corporations know more about my personal life than I do, doesn't everyone?). Oh well, I'm quite sure it will be worth the wait!

Good idea. Or, failing that, perhaps she will adopt you (since Donald Trump isn't showing any interest). ; )

Grats! I am getting me a copy of that book. YOu better authograph it for me! I hope to go to the festival in Savannah. I would be my first@! ;-) I said I was from the Antarctic because I wanted people to think my puppets were cool. Ug!

I was trying to check out your website. Just wanted to let you know I cant activate it. Tells me there is an error. I tried to access it without the like provided and still didnt work. Seems like a server issue and hopefully be back up soon, but thought I should let you know in case you didnt.

I got it, Bob, and I'm in full agreement. Shall we start a puppeteers' commune in Toronto?

I just finished reading Diary of a Doll Wiggler. Awesome and very funny account of the world of puppetry. It's definitely a crazy, unique, and amazing profession!
