That is NOT a misprint. I recently mailed three signed copies of my book to my beloved friends, The Johnsons, in Louisville, KY. Pictured here with me in mid-jump at the Owensboro Burgoo Festival:
I sent them, as I always do, via Priority Mail in the envelope. But this time, i sent 3 books in one envelope — which turned out to be too many: the envelope arrived at the Johnsons – completely empty.
I got mad at the Post Office, and was on my way out the door to send 3 more books, when i got the email below from a Postal Officer in Kentucky –
“I received 3 “A Fork on the Road” books today, personally signed by
Mark. One is inscribed to Johnson & Johnson, “you two kicked off this
whole book in Owensboro. Everytime I enjoy some “hot brown” I think of
you”. XXOO Mark. I’m sure they’re intended for someone in Owensboro,
KY and I would be happy to get them repackaged and sent on their way
if you can supply me the name and address to send them to.
I have to admit, I’m a Foodnetwork junkie…and I
have thumbed through this book and it is absolutely a must have in my
cookbook collection. Mark is very funny.
Looking forward to hear back from you.
