Library Event in Floyd ~ Today!

slowroadbarn2_desktopHope to see a few of you at the library in town today. In spite of some MAC to PC incompatibilities, it’s looking like we’ll be able to make the digital projector churn out the Ken Burns version of the book black and white images, the upcoming calendar images and the notecard images. And then this guy talks about his book, blah, blah, blah.

Program starts at 2. (Image: Ron Campbells Slow Road Barn — landscape version.)

  1. I hope you had a decent turnout! Floyd has such a nice library – I’ll have to check out the new addition the next time I’m in town.
