Wonderful welcome in Columbus

I had an absolute wonderful time with the Columbus, MS book club at Columbus-Lowndes Public Library yesterday. The library is beautiful. There was roughly 20 members present. The Friends of the Library Book Talk enjoys mysteries for their readings.

Mrs. Millie Moore, President of the club, gave me a wonderful introduction and delicious snacks. The group was comprised of a wonderful mixture of professional individuals who politely laughed on cue at all of my little funnies. There were even a number of gardeners present. I enjoyed handing out the two door prizes and the surprise live flower give-a -way to the person in purple.

Several years ago, I spotted a large statue of a frog in a wisteria filled yard that I searched the city for and found. The group told me that the city had numerous gardens to tour and I was invited back to the lovely city at any time to enjoy the many gardens and the beautiful azaleas when they bloom.

I made a new friend, Ms. Scoti Diane, that I will be staying in contact with in the future. If you are ever in the area, stop by and visit the friendly people of Columbus that I also mentioned in my book.

I traveled back in time last week.

I am so happy. I have found a wonderful site named GardenStew. I am enjoying all of the people and posts there. I finally got the hang of posting pictures.

I went to a one man performance at my seminary Nov. 3, it was very good and the performer interacted with the audience well. The performance was on the life and times of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church.
The quilt in the background is what is known as a star-quilt. My mother and aunts have made and sold so many of them. I myself made one when I around 13/14. I don't like the quilt life so much. The costume was so authentic and representive of that era. The show was funny as well as informative. John Wesley took on the job of ministering to the indians even though not successfully. We blacks, were not thought to have a soul to save during that time. Thank goodness someone decided that we did have a soul.
Seeds are always planted for good or bad. Be careful in soil and life as to the seeds you plant. The pictures and harvest may not be pleasing to the eye.

Butterfly chase

I have the most delightful job of telling everyone how lovely the ladies are at Columbus Lowndes Public Library in Columbus, MS. I have spoken with the lady over the library on the telephone and I can't wait to meet her and the book club members for my book signing November 14, 2007. I would mention names but I am horrible with names and prefer to have a face to match. Keep an eye out for more on the lovely ladies of Lowndes County.

Yes, I chased this butterfly down with no regards for my safety. There are snakes (poisonous) where I live and I should always be diligent where I put my feet. I threw caution to the wind and took flight and got my shot.
I have many varieties of butterflies and moths in my yard. I hope to capture many pictures of wild life in the coming year. As always, enjoy nature and enjoy life. Wish me luck at my book signing.
