Happenings today, tomorrow, and Scotland

I am still waiting for the books. Publishing is a wonderful way to practice patience. Twenty five of them are supposed to be here any day. As I wait, I enjoy the time spent with my family. Ricky and my two grandsons are up here in Long Lake with me. Last night, there were several kids and adults at a family bar b que my sister put on. The kids swam, fished, built giant holes in the beach, and ran around the woods playing all kinds of games. Awesome; no electronic games, just plain old outside kid fun! The adults kayaked, cooked, and sat around enjoying finding out what everybody did over the winter. What a great time.

We had our first play practice for my play entitled Mystery of the Buttercup, which is a historical event that took place in Long Lake in 1885. It went well. We will have dress rehearsal on August 7, and the play will be August 9 at 7:30 at the Long Lake Town Hall where the mystery will be revealed. I have contacted the Adirondack Creative Arts Center in Blue Mountain Lake, and they kindly offered costumes, and props I may be able to use.

On August 10 at 1:30 PM during the Historical Weekend Exhibit, we are planning to have a panel of old timers who worked at the once magnificent Sagamore Hotel. They will relate a story or two about what it was like to work there, what they did, and how the hotel looked. One panel member told me that it was a spectacular sight at night with all the lights on. She said it looked like a castle!

My creative writing class starts July 10th, and I am so looking forward to seeing some of my old friends who have come almost every year. I am also looking forward to meeting new people. The sessions go from 11:30-1:00PM, and you can come to one session or all five, and the best part is that they are FREE. We actually write most of the time we are there. One participant has written three songs. We have fun and it doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a published author, and if you write fiction, nonfiction, poetry or music. You will fit in.

Busy summer planned including going to Scotland with my sister on August 28th for a month. What a life! What a gift I have been given!
