Here's what I had planned to post. Long, witty stories that told of what I have done in my absence from this blog. Wonderfully crafted, they would only hint at the majestic evening walks I have taken in the Iowa countryside. Without bragging, referring to the shawl almost done, lace almost perfect. The tiny purse entered in Home Ec Workshop's purse contest. (Iowa City folks, don't forget to vote!) The magnificent trip to Camp Ramah and the company of other children's book writers, new friends, I think. And my homegrown group, the Tall Grass writers. But here it is late Friday afternoon. The buzzer just rang. Time to need the challah for tonight's meal. So a humble offering to any followers of this blog. An image, rough and tumble. Posted.
