the Published letter

This is the letter that was included in Dear Sad Goat.

I urge you to read the book, there are some incredible writers there. If you decide to buy a copy all profits go to charity......half way to fame nowhere near fortune!

This story takes place in Yorkshire England in 1964, I was just 6 years old. Winter and snow was a fascinating change from the rain. We dressed up in the woolen hats and mitts our grandmothers made us and played for hours outside.
This was the year two boys from Ethiopia moved in down the street. As amazed as I was with the snow they were absolutely awestruck. We played for hours with them building snowmen and having snowball fights. Lunch was called so we left our friends playing, telling them we would return.
An hour later we went to ask if our new friends could come out to play. We were sternly told NO! by their mother. Apparently, finding it too cold outside, the boys had moved their snowman inside and put him in front of the fire. We didn’t get a chance to play with them again until the snow was gone!
