Celebrating Auburn Connections tomorrow at The Red Bike Cafe at Creekside with friends/acquaintances, colorful writers/musicians/artists.  Upbeat/positive/enthusiastic are the hallmarks of the group.


Launched The Authors Program with Edna Sparkes guesting at ACTV today where the set was aglow with Edna art on porcelain and conversation about Ed’s book was the focus and the audience appreciated and the energy was high and filled with enthusiasm.  Stay tuned for more action at ACTV.


Author Alton Pryor talked up his variety of books and the CONNECTIONS group ate it up with a full table of enthusiasts.  You Go Pryor.


She threw caution to the wind and left her CZ to register voters in the deep south and now her book tells her story so kudos to author and Civil Rights activist Sheri  Labedis who joined with CONNECTIONS at LaBou this  Monday and shared her harrowing experiences during times of tumultous unrest.


BULLS EYE at Monday CONNECTIONS where author/big rig driver Mary Ellen Dempsey held the table captive with her experiences about life out on the road driving the big rigs.  Jack Smallwood joined Paula Johnston and others along with Skip Meyer for a community connection and all was well and rather swell.  Stay tuned as we grow and continue to glow.


Looking forward to hosting stalwart big rig driver Mary Ellen Dempsey on Monday at 11am and seems like there are great connections already as Jack and M.E. both hail from WVA and Jack traveled similar highways.  Here’s to those who had the courage and have the courage to take risks and bet on themselves.  Oh yeah.


Flattened somewhat by watery eyes/lack of thrust impacted by allergies and gave Jack chamomile tea relief for stinging eyes and did manage to walk The Hanz for 20 minutes and lazing around but will try for another 20 minutes on this flat day, hoping for thrust Monday when Carol Anita Ryan visits and talks up her book and expect now to see Paula Johnston who can meet Ron Montana at CONNECTIONS.


Monday’s mirth was a delight as storyteller Chery Anderson shared her Little Red Riding Hood tale and Ron Montana oversaw the table and we touched bases with Edna Sparkes and received a beautiful CONNECTIONS flyer from artist B.K. England, ready we are next Monday for mystery writer Cindy Sample who will talk/sign and bring herer Drop Dead Cookies.  Look out world.


Off and running to OT Auburn where I caught up with Kevin Mix who told me about his award for his art at the State Fair and shared with me tales about Rattlesnake Dick, his burial place and other; and then I photographed Mix’ double tiki mask at Al’s Place and then visited with Virginia at USC and then visited with Daphne (from South Africa) at the  Auburn Courthouse after enjoying a tasty lunch at CHC.  Off for a  visit to Peace for Families/Discovery Shop where I picked up some fun items inclu a book by Jas Van Eaton.   Home to catch up with J who had the house to himself and was dressed in red, oh happy day.


Fish and delicious chips at Wings and then putting with Jack and then range practice with gifted golf balls to hit in the heat and off to the library where I read newspapers/magazines and then headed to town to cruise the Salvation Army and then to Tango’s for some cold taste and then to the Hospice thrift store to pick up a lovely hammerhead Seri, what a stunning find. Home at 4pm to relax/chat with Jack and then refreshing Maria dinner before a walk with Hanz and Brandy, a good day: Wings/Golf/Walking (AM also). Paula listed CONNECTIONS on ACTV so I remain hopeful.
