This isMay 6th in our gardens! It’s Molly Fox’s birthday! Happy Birthday Molly!
April 25: Now I did not get to go to Yesterfest to celebrate those Pioneer Days in Bastrop, Texas. I don’t understand why not. I had begun to work up some lines where I would say, “Pie, where’s the Pie? I heard there was going to be Pie near.” Or another was, “Hey Where’s the great deal on the Pioneer VHS tape decks? I thought we were going to get some great buys on Pioneer stuff. That way I could watch my favorite movie, The Lion in Winter!” But no, I stayed home and had my own party. But that’s another story. I did add this picture of me because I look like I am saying WAAAAH! I didn’t get to go to Bastrop!
I suggested we do a CRAZY picture. Here’s Kamil joining us making crazy faces! That’s me with the biggest mouth!
April 14-17: Jiaany Girl and I traveled to Austin for the annual Texas Library Association Conference. We performed at the Storytelling Roundtable Evening Concert.
Check out my video on YouTube – Spike in Austin!
Our good friend, Paula Ellis, did the video. Thanks, Paula! Everybody Enjoy!
I have a healthy respect for all the folks who keep up with their Blogs, Tweets, and Facebook postings as I am a here again, gone again visitor to my own Blog pages.
Coming events – May and June: Travels and lots of gardening are on my calendar. Those are two items I love and devote time to along with my storytelling. In Dallas as part of the annual Dallas Water Wise Garden tour you can visit our gardens the 1st Saturday in June. Here are some pictures of our gardens. Contact me for more information. You can see the flowers and trees have certainly benefited from all those Spring rains I’ve mentioned in my recent posts.
Hey there, everyone! What fun we had telling stories at 7 libraries in Fort Worth in April.
Everyone was friendly, and the libraries were beautiful!
If you check in with Spike’s Blog, you may be confused. He didn’t go VIRUS. I attempted to explain to him, “going viral”. There were lots of Spike cut-out puppets at the 5th Annual Puppetry Festival at the Central Library in Fort Worth.

On May 4th I traveled to Denton to McMath to tell folk tales and relate snippets of Texas history to the 7th graders. I even told a true Ghost Story. And I certainly appreciated all the good listeners.
Here I am telling stories to the 7th graders on May 4, 2014. This is part of the Tejas Tellers in the Schools program.
