Pictures Of Our First Book Signing

As some of you may know, Brittany and I had our first Book Signing on Tuesday at the Larry J. Ringer Library, in College Station. This was also the first for this library to hold a book signing. Peggy and Debbie were so wonderful with making us feel welcome and putting us at ease. We just can't thank them enough. I was excited to see how many young people had questions about writing and publishing.

A reporter from our local newspaper surprised us with a visit during the book signing. Of course being a proud Grandma, I went out the next day and bought several copies of the newspaper containing "the story."

Richard Bradford, author of "Seventh Earth" held a writing workshop, for children, also on Tuesday. Brittany gave a presentation on writing, also a first for her. She did a great job.

We look forward to many more book signings!

Here are a few pictures of the big event.

Horses and Fireworks

Most of us enjoy watching a great firework display while we celebrate the Fourth of July. What about our animals? Do they enjoy it as well, or are they extremely frightened by the loud booming noise?

If horses could read a calendar, some would be suffering nervous anticipation of the big booms that will soon fill their space. The bomb-proof horses could care less. But for some it is no fun at all and their being frightened can cause them to be a danger to themselves and those around them. Do you know how your horse will react if your neighbor shoots off fireworks?

To be on the side of safety, we always stayed at home on the 4th. Jadon and Gabe and the other horses were in their stalls. The lights would be on in the barn. The radio in the barn would play soothing music turned up loud to help block out some of the noise. Our horses also enjoyed us visiting with them when we told them, "it's o.k., it will be over soon."

So, what will you be doing to help your horses, dogs, cats, goats and etc. enjoy their Fourth of July?

Have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!
