Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

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.

Farm Appreciation Day

Saturday was Farm Appreciation Day at the Farmer's market in downtown Rocky Mount. 

This display of woodenware was impressive.

Old school books and a basket of lye soap. (I bought a cake of the soap for 50 cents.)

Flour sacks were once a source of yard goods for home seamstresses. 

Take a closer look. You might have to click to enlarge the photo to read the sign. 

This dress was made of flour sacks.

I should have taken pictures of the cows (I arrived too late for the milking contest) or the farm machinery, but I didn't. I see plenty of cows and farm machinery in my neighborhood.
