I had signed up for a book fair in Hackensack, Mn way back in early May. My thought was to showcase my new book at what I had heard, was one of the largest art and book shows in the lakes area. I also decided to extend our time in the lakes area and have a mini vacatio...

Something comes over me when I am at the Dr.’s office. I am mostly a very capable and smart woman; except when at the Dr.’s office. And especially when I am less than fully dressed.

I always called her Grandma Graham. I never knew until I was older that I was calling her by her last name. To me when I said her name it was as if I was saying some of the most loving words I could ever imagine. She was my Great Grandmother. I never knew that either u...
