Before I rush off to NYC on Saturday, I better post all the events that have filled our October.
First, this is Gary Soto, a well known children's author from Fresno. My students have enjoyed his stories for many years. I finally got the chance to meet him at West Hills College. He was a guest speaker. He kindly autographed my book, Baseball in April, and posed for our picture. He is a very good poet and short story writer.
Here is Gary with my friend Jeanine Hill. Jeanine invited me to go with her to meet Mr. Soto. It was a wonderful event.
Later that week, Lyle and I attended the Avalon concert at South Valley Church in Lemoore. Avalon is a Contempory Christian group. It was a fabulous concert. We were thrilled that they would come to Lemoore for the concert! What a blessing! (Of course, I couldn't keep the camera still for the photos!)
Then, the next day, Hanford had a guest at the Carnegie Museum. We toured the museum and was impressed with the collection at this origional Library for Hanford. Can you guess who was there? Yes, Huell Howser, from the PBS series "California Gold." When we first arrived, we could have waited in a short line to meet him. But, by the time we finished going through the museum, the line was quite long. So these long distance shots are all I got before the battery in my camera died!
But, the best Happening of October come on the 13th...with Baby Bee. She is a wonder. Here are her 1st week of life collages. Enjoy!We love that baby! Thanks for blogging those pics! I can hardly wait to hold that bundle of love!
