Hope you will like my garden. Planting : words for bulbs and plants, Gods' love and kindness for sturdy stems, poetry for healthy leaves, short stories for plant shape, help from friends for pruning, patience and persistance for beautiful blooms. I am hoping and planning to grow a full fledged author, from this ground.

Broom Stands Alone !
I saw it myself. A broom standing by itself in Curves when we arrived for exercise this morning, Monday 19 October 2009. One of their customers had heard about this on the web and went to Wal-Mart yesterday. She stood several brooms in the isle and people went around them and never noticed anything special. I ask how they did that? And was told, "I was the first to notice that it was standing alone. Several people had been in and walked around it, worked out and left." I had thought it was just something they had done for Halloween since last week Jennifer the owner had on red wax lips and Lavon had a wax mustache. Lavon said, "The planet alignment made the magnetic polarity cause the broom to stand alone." They turned the fan on and it blew it over. Lavon set it another place and it stood until someone kicked it. Lavon set it in another place and it still worked. We don't know how long it will last. It was working awhile ago when I told a couple of neighbor boys about it. Try it soon. Fun. My broom handle isn't in the center, but off to one side so it didn't work for me. I hope they got a picture of it.
My son,Ken,recently retired after 20 years service in the U.S. Navy. I am very proud of him.
Good Friends are a Blessing. Red Hats for Jesus is a fun group, so glad to have this fellowship.
The Wednesday Breakfast Club(JEWELS)brought me many wonderful friends. Each one is Special.
The Weekly Writers Guild is a very important part of my life. I am the leader, since Nicholas, had to give it up to work more hours. Thanks for passing the torch to me. Emma, Elsie, Claudette, Judy, Betty Jo, I enjoy writing with you. New interest for us has been gained from joining with other writers at their meetings. Hope to gain lots of new friends there.

along as the author reads aloud.

submission locations will be
discussed. Everyone interested
in writing is invited.
