On the Road Again: Weather Permitting


While today and especially tonight looks like a frog-choker here (and I WILL take the chain saw on our dinner date tonight for trees potentially across Goose Creek on our way home) the weekend appears meteorologically seasonal without snow or ice. Good.

Saturday morning I’ll be in Pulaski at the library–along with a dozen or more other authors, offering goodies for Christmas gifts and stocking-stuffers, and for the interesting conversation within the writer’s group and with those few (dare we hope many) book-friendly citizens who stop by to chat and make a selection hot from the hands of the writers who created the goodies.

Saturday afternoon (for sure 3 to 4:00–maybe earlier) I’ll have a foot or two of table space at the Floyd Country Store (along with other craftspersons for an event that starts late morning for those who can get there.)

I’ll have books and Blue Ridge Photographic note cards at both events.

NOTE! I have 25 packs of each of the four sets of cards left. For those who have mentioned their intention to order, better get off your tuffett and make the move. More info found in the right and left sidebars here or just click this link. If you’re in a rush and want to go the Paypal route, you can have cards off to you by Saturday. Email me, we’ll work out the details. Ho HO HO!
