The Captain’s 1st post

The path to your future is paved with words … watch your step.

Hey there everybody, 9/18/15

I’ll be starting my blog for ya all today. It’s Captain Jeff here and I’ll be keeping you all informed as to my schedule and talking about the importance of reading and trying to do your best.

I’ve just finished my summer storytelling tour and had a wonderful time. My partner on my tour was Alanna Lou and she did a great job welcoming the kids and introducing me for each show. The shows were all wonderful and the kids were great. We traveled 9000 miles, went through 9 states, across 4 Canadian providences, and did 13 shows. We also gave out almost 1000 magical sea shells so kids could use them to follow their dreams. All in all it was a fabulous tour.

We now are planning on setting up our home base in San Diego, Ca. We will be giving shows in the area at schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA, and any place that values reading and following your dreams. Keep your eyes and ears open, ’cause we plan to make a difference in the way kids look at reading and their futures. We even are trying to get Ellen to have us on her show. Time will tell and you’ll be the first to know when it happens.

I guess that’s enough info for the first blog entry, so I’ll just say, “Later” and let you read the feedback we got from the shows we did this summer.

Remember, “It’s not what ya look like, it’s what ya arrrrrrre!” CJ
