Stories from the past, for the future. Fun things in my life, and my family's.

Putting new entries on the website.
As you folks know. I love books. I love children's books especially. One can learn a lot about life, about history, about science, about a lot of things reading children's books. Stories told in a simple manner can explain complex ideas.
This little book is about animals with human characteristics. Some are heroic, and some are not so nice. Like all good stories, the wicked are punished and the good rewarded. At least that is how it used to be. You can find this little book on the Children's Books page on TryonCountyBookshop.com.
I never had time for books that didn't have a happy ending, where good didn't triumph over evil. Today things seem to be all upside down.
I am also starting a new page on the website. Minerals. We collected rocks and minerals for many years. We traveled around the east coast collecting, and spent a lot of time in Canada. We had some outrageous adventures, and many good times with the fine people who collect minerals.
61 years married to the same wonderful guy. Nine times a grandmother, three times a mother. He has taken me to dig minerals in Francon Quarry in the heart of Montreal, and pan for gold in Douglas Creek Wyoming. We have a pssion for Scottish games, and all things Scottish including Robert Burns and single malt. I learned to make a kilt, (made 4 or 5) and scones. We are blessed because we both love books. We seem to stumble over them everywhere we go (including the living room, the dining room, the bedroom, the computer room and yes, even the bathroom.) We go to Gun Shows to buy and sell books, and meet so many nice people. I am learning to build a webpage. My next ambition is sudoku?? I haven't a prayer there.
