July 26th 2011 - Book 74 - I made this book cover from an organic soup box that Special Guest Stars Jeff and Niki the Hot Springs Caretakers gave me, along with a lot of other food they didn't want, before they left. It was sad to see them go. Jeff bought my first keg-book, and Niki bought one of my split-pea soup themed books for her mom. I will remember them as two of Bookmaker Jake's first "supporting cast members." After I finished this book production scene, I packed up my PCT pack and drove to meet my sister Elizabeth (see a photo of her in my Greatest Hits section) for a two day camping trip with her three boys and my brother-in-law Andy. I was very excited to see them. I ended this scene with, "Ta-ta! I'm off to hang out with my rambunctious nephews and my sister Elizabeth who's an awesome mom!"
