Today was another work-on-the-booth day. I was in Athens, Ohio, adding new items to my booth and getting the accounting of my sales straightened out. Thankfully it proved to be an easy task, and in the end I was well pleased with the results. This booth is really doing well.
Tomorrow is the start of three days of storytelling. I'll be in Clendenin, WV tomorrow night with my musician friend Jeff Seager, presenting stories and songs in celebration of our state's 150th birthday. If you're in that area, stop by the library around 6pm and say hello.
Friday I'll be in Glenville, WV to tell stories in the Oral Traditions Tent at the West Virginia State Folk Festival. This is one of the best oldtime festival around--small enough to be enjoyable, with a stunning array of musical talent lined up along with dancing, a spelling bee, shape-note singing and much more. It's a step back to a better time.
Then Saturday is the real hoopla: The Sesquicentennial Celebration at the WV State Capitol in Charleston, WV. I will be one of four storytellers on the Capitol grounds, telling stories for our state's history and culture. It will be a grand day, make no mistake. I am so excited about being part of it.
So if I'm quiet here, you know why. The gardens continue to bless us with goodness, the new truck is finally home, and all is well at chez Holstein. I hope the same is true for you.
