    I loved this session more than I can say. Thank you Jon and Laura for bringing Tracy Sue to us. I have learned so much from you, CBI, and the wonderful guests you introduce us to. When I was five years old, my friend’s mother called me the biggest liar on the block. I was stunned and confused by her accusation. Oddly enough, she was right. I still tell flat-out lies but only in picture books.
