It is a bit of a conundrum that I can collect research and write books in Cave Creek, AZ about a place 2500 miles east with “real” green trees (in the summer) and numerous blue streams and lakes. (We do have a blue, blue sky most of the year, though the palo verde shown here is about our greenest “tree.”)

I have recently been enjoying trips to the nearest library (affectionately called “the rusty library” because of the re-rod architectural theme) for research and books including some about WWII which will be included in my next book.

The last couple visits to the library, I have been especially cautious. I thought that perhaps Halfway Brook readers might enjoy photos of the warning signs.

    I haven’t seen them at the library. But a couple weeks ago (before the yellow signs were put up) I heard a librarian telling a man that there had been a snake in the sitting area just outside the library.

    Have you seen these rattlers? Are they near where you walk?
