Cayce Arts

Cayce Festival of the Arts

Coming this Saturday, April 9th at 1300 State Street with artists, crafters, and authors. I’ll be there with my friend and fellow writer Mike Long, author of a series of Western novels. 
McKendree (Mike) Long
Starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Last year’s inaugural festival drew 2500 visitors and was a success for the Cayce Avenues Association. They’re predicting another good year. Along with tents displaying arts and crafts will be food vendors.

If you’re in the area, come by and say “hello.” And take a look at my historical fiction novels, all discounted from amazon prices. They include a series of four antebellum novels and a family saga:
— Kedzie, Saint Helena Island Slave, A brave girl foils the tactics of her owner
— Master of Westfall Plantation, A "good" plantation owner mistreats his family and slaves
— Cold Slave Cradle, A mute slave loves an orphan baby
— Westfall, Slave to King Cotton, Things fall apart with approaching secession
— Dust On the Bible - Twelve year-old Lily encounters a family secret
Along with meeting local writers, you’ll see artwork such as paintings, photography, jewelry, sculpture, wood carvings, and pottery. The Festival is located on the grounds of Brookland-Cayce High School, just a couple of turns off Knox Abbot Drive. I hope to see you there.

My three grandsons spent last week with me and my husband Doug. From dawn till dusk we wore out the days. We took the boys fishing. Everybody, even the three year-old, caught a bluegill.

Doug and our son cleaned the fish. I pan-fried them for a fish supper.

We took advantage of a brisk wind Saturday afternoon to fly kites.

The tire swing was popular, 
though the limb of the pecan tree 
swayed enough to be a worry.

We painted dinosaurs, hunted for hidden treasure, made paper crowns, and planted beans and corn to begin the vegetable garden. In between times, the boys played on the play set Doug built. What a week! (I'm recovering.)
