The North East Iowa Writer's Conference: organizers and speakers
Lyle spending time with his lovely wife Pat who is interested in his work, and often his most ardent fan and proof reader.
In this picture she accompanied him to the Quad Cities Greyhound Adoption shelter in Maysville Iowa.
Subsequent to this visit, Lyle wrote a wonderful and positive piece on the Greyhounds and their wonderful qualities as "adoptive children" in your home.
A special salute to the volunteers at the QCGA who run a 100% volunteer organization and have adopted out over a thousand retired racers.
