I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Relatively Speaking

I spent today with various cousins.

This morning, my cousin Hunter from down the road accompanied me to the Franklin County Library for Craft Day. We'd worked together there last year. This year we manned the visor-making table. Before the general public came in, Hunter got to try his hand at making another craft. (All of the crafts were bug-related.)

Here's our table (below) with the visor-making stuff spread out. Kids could make a visor that looked like a butterfly, a bee, a beetle, or a lady bug. Our job was to help them glue the parts in the right order.

This afternoon, my cousin Mary (the one who is younger and more agile than I am) came over to ride Melody. Her son Collin came to ride Cupcake for the first time.

Melody was full of energy. Cupcake wasn't.

Too bad I didn't take pictures of the horses. Or make visors for them.

Nice pictures!! The kids are really cute too - lol.

It was really nice seeing you and Hunter. I think Cameron looks forward to joining you both next year.

I just hate that we missed that this year. I was too busy getting ready to leave for vacation. Looks like you had another great time!
