Jim Hauser, my favorite stained glass artist, was at the juried craft show and I asked him to pose with his stained glass project that was on display. This map of West Virginia has been a challenge, he said. He did not want to repeat any glass, so each county is cut from a different sheet. I asked him where this amazing piece might end up and he said he didn't know yet. It certainly should be in a place where all West Virginians can enjoy it. It's a tribute to our home.
I was so happy to see Bob McWhorter at the Tellabration! concert. Bob was instrumental in getting many of us going in storytelling. He is the founder of the first WV Storytelling Festival and guided its progress for eight years. He will always have a special place in my heart, and I know it is the same for the other storytellers he has encouraged over the years.
We were finally able to see our youngest son after the storytelling concert. What a treat that was! He lives in Morgantown but attends Fairmont State University. Tommy is our bodybuilder and is in training for an upcoming bodybuilding competition. I need to post some of his recent photos in pose--his body is incredible right now. Takes after me! Not.
We were home by midnight to a warm house. Anyone who has heated with wood for years knows what I'm talking about if they ever switched to gas heat. I mean, no wood to haul, no kindling, no staying in our coats until the fire gets going. Just nice, even comfortable heat. This was only our second night with the new stove, but already I felt spoiled.
That was Saturday. Today--well, that's a whole new post.
