Earlier this year, I blogged about appearing as a guest at the Wilderness Wildlife Festival in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was a great time in a bee-yoo-ti-ful area that I love to visit! While there, I was approached by Marla Milling, a writer for Blue Ridge Country Magazine. We visited for awhile and she attended my Snuffy Smith Chalk Talk cartooning program. Afterwards she asked if she could interview me for the September/October edition of the magazine. I was very flattered and humbled by her request.  She is a very talented writer and wrote a really terrific story! If you’d like to check it out, click on the link below:
