Labor Day weekend is also our County Fair. I have so many great memories of this small, but action-packed venue, but we had to sit this one out given Paul’s knee and the uncertainty around the new Covid variants.

But post-Covid Kelly, who is feeling 100% and slightly invincible, was there every day—for business and for fun and she shared some pics with me.

Friday night is discounted “Family Wrist Bands” for the rides. I still remember the excitement of the carnival rides at our county fair many, many years ago—the scarier the better.

The Saturday night event is the Demolition Derby. You know, where people fix up old cars to wreck in a sort of mud-slinging bumpercar free-for-all! Kelly helped sponsor a young man who used to ride her bus when she drove for the school.

Sunday morning is the Team Roping, which included a lot of local guys who did good and won some serious buckles and saddles!

The Sunday evening Rodeo was a sold-out affair. I’m happy for the athletes and spectators, but it was ungodly hot, so I can’t really say I’m sorry I wasn’t there. And, alas, Kelly didn’t get any pics because sometimes you have to put fashion first—her cool skirt didn’t have any pockets for a phone. 😉 Maybe next year.

Last week's Q&A was: Have you read any Tule Publishing books? If your answer is YES, and you’d like one of my new bookmarks, include your snail mail address in your answer.

Wow! Thanks for all the smiles. I love readers!

And thank you, William, for including a photo of your Tule library. I’m happy to see quite a few of my books there! Readers absolutely rock!!!

Knee surgery patient update: Paul has kicked (not literally) his walker to the curb and upgraded to a cane. His physical terrorist (friend and fellow knee replacement patient Eric’s name for his physical therapist 😉) told Paul today that he is doing “Great.” He’s also starting to ween himself off the narcotics, which is happy news for me because refilling that prescription is a 3-hour roundtrip drive.

Happy reading, my friends.


Upcoming: hmmm…we shall see…
