Come One, Come All…

Need something to do this weekend to escape the heat? Why not come wander around the wonderful booths and workshops at INATS West in Denver? There is so much to do and see and I will be signing copies of my book DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD in my publisher’s booth. Please look for Rainbow Ridge Books.

I love, love, LOVE meeting new people, so I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

Ode to My Dad

Snow Geese in Flight at Sunset

One life touches so many others: my Dad loved
his country
John Wayne and Jim Beam
my mom
carving waterfowl out of wood
antelope hunting
goose hunting
elk hunting
telling stories and corny jokes,
restoring antique automobiles
taking home videos
baked macaroni and cheese topped with bread crumbs
German chocolate cake
smoking his pipe
watching wild birds
John Denver
WWII movies
his family
his church
Lay’s potato chips
his Ford F250 pickup truck, midnight blue
backpacking in the mountains
Dickies pants
Frank Sinatra
Patsy Kline
Johnny Cash
The Denver Broncos
Jerry Clower
old-time musicals like “South Pacific,” “Oklahoma,” “The Music Man,” and                   “The Carousel”
Chet Atkins, Hank Williams, Sr. and Waylon Jennings
classic poems
his grandsons
and me.

I miss you, Daddy.
