Birthday greetings yet again, Jesse!  I've miss seeing you on my computer, here and beyond.

Hey, Jesse!

Don't know if you must be at the library Saturday, but I hope your birthday is at least as much fun as you are!  ENJOY!!!

Lois - thanks for all the kind words!

My main storytime hand and rod puppet is a cheerleader by the "Melissa and Doug" company. She is named "Francine," and is a bit of a prima donna, too. I know that same company makes a ballerina puppet - is that the one you have, by any chance?

The monkey on my head in my picture was part of a program we did during the last Summer Reading Club. It was our biggest program ever, with 600 attendees, and more turned away at the door. The monkey ("Miki") has a thing for men with beards, so he took to me right away. The lollipop he is eating is the treat he gets after every show.

Take care! - Jesse

Hey Jesse!
What fun seeing you. Remember when on Storytell somebody figured if you're a children's librarian then Jesse must be a short form of Jessica?!? See how a picture could have helped? I also enjoyed all the added info on your telling & puppetry.

I've just adopted a new puppet who is a hand & rod ballerina. I'm planning on using her as my sidekick next year for the Summer Reading Club theme on the arts & creativity since my programs will be Stories That Dance or Sing. Her personality is starting to show up. . . quite the primadonna or maybe in her case Donna the Prima Ballerina.

Your sidekick in your picture creates a story unto itself. My guess would be this was a photo taken at a program. Then again it could be a mischievous furry member of your family.

Either way, it's great seeing you, Jesse. Thanks for that & the other additions to your page here.

Greetings, Jesse!
Hope at some point you let yourself get a bit more personal here at PS. I know you also have a lot of website skills, so that can't be keeping you from passing along more about yourself. I also know that on STORYTELL you are using your library account. Been there, done that, am delighted now to be a full-time storyteller speaking just for myself & not another employer.

One of the delightful differences about this Ning site is the Sight. . . seeing who is responding. I didn't realize who you were until a few of your posts in discussions led me back to your page here. You didn't even give us your last name. Yes, I know I go by LoiS, but that's due to not wanting to lose about 35 yrs. experience as both a storyteller & librarian with that horribly long 12-letter last name that is now my middle name. No hyphen there, please! That would make me have to use both it & Keel all the time! (I do enjoy having found my Keel in life for many reasons.)

At any rate, Jesse, do whatever it takes to let yourself respond freely here. As somebody who combined my storytelling with a library life, it's great to see you here -- with or without picture. Your viewpoint is needed.

Hi Jesse!

Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Glad you decided to join the site. I'll be at TLA - will you be attending? If so, I'd love to meet you. I'll be signing in my publisher's booth (Libraries Unlimited) each day of the conference. Hope you enjoy the site and making new friends. Best wishes!

Well, actually, I wouldn't suggest this for your clients. This is an industry insider site, it's not for promotion of your work to the public. There are many other ways to do that. Don't let this site sub for your own real sites and directory listings.

Hey, Jesse -

It IS you, the "Texas Jesse" - I tho't it had to be you -

See you in Denton? Hope so - I have a workshop Friday morning, if you're up, in the mood, and in the territory (8:30-10:00A.M.!!)

Thanks for 'beFriending me' -

Best to you,

Hello Jesse

Welcome to the coolest place for storytelling on the planet. You will love this site. Great people, good discussions and a real community. Welcome, jump in the water is fine... take a peek at The Fishbowl too while you are poking around.

Welcome again

Hello, Jesse, and Welcome!

Southlake, as in Texas?

If so, we've met (Howdy!) - If not, "How you doin'?" -

Regardless, this is an awesome site - I'm certain you've heard about it from friends, and you're gonna love it, no doubt!

Key: Don't rush!
There is a LOT to this site, and you frustrate yourself by trying to squeeze it all in with a single 15 minute tour.

It will be a tremendous asset to you in your work, and it will be a great site to recommend to your 'clients.'

This has, in a remarkably short time, (and in my opinion) become THE place for storytellers! Look around, and you'll see what I mean -

Main Page, Teller Pages, your My Page, Videos, audiofiles, Photos, Forums, Groups - (FAQ Group, take note!) check'em out and use'em!

If I may be of assistance, please don't hesitate to holler -

Best to you - thanks for coming with us, and remember...
you are Welcome!

P.S. See the group for Storyteller Presenters!



P.P.S. Will I see you in Denton???
