Gil and I recently had a lovely get-away to Lake DeGray State Park, near Bismarck, AR. We camped near the lake and spent some time each day riding the trike around the camp ground and nearby roads and and highways. We met some lovely people through the time there, even a couple from our local church. It was nice getting to know this young couple from Grace Baptist as we sat around the campfire one evening. Weather and temperature was perfect!  

April 21st, 2012, Antique Trade Days, Rayville, Louisiana, was a special book event for me and Mama because we were joined by guest Tate author Kimberly Thompson from Baskin, La.  Kim had two books on the table for signing and selling, Gypsy Phoenix: A Birthright of Hope and Uncle Frank's Search for the Alligator King. It was wonderful spending time with Kim that day and getting to know her.  We had a great day selling books and meeting folks there in Rayville.

I recently read Kim's book Gypsy Phoenix, A Birthright of Hope. I really enjoyed the book and can highly recommend it. Kim's memoirs of her early life is a fascinating read as you learn how she overcame hardships in her adoptive family and how she finally met her biological mother at the age of 38. You will find this to be a heartwarming story from beginning to end.
