I'm glad I accepted her invitation. My husband and I had a wonderful time.
I read excerpts from some of my stories I had written.
My favorite part was when some of the children present helped act out my story, Maizy and the Shiny Black Crows.
These children had a great time portraying Maizy and the farmer.
Even the adults got in on the act. I didn't know my husband was such a good actor. I think he missed his calling. Not only did he do a good Maizy, I also learned he can sound just like a crow. The other man, Hugh, did a great job as the farmer.
We also talked about superstitions and folklore. I read a piece I had written called, I Admit It, I Am Superstitious and read a small excerpt from Lucy, which deals with superstitions.
People in attendance added to the conversation, telling about their own superstitions and folklore.
It was hot! But a rain cooled the air just before we left to go back home.
