Turkey time is coming up within a few weeks. Aromas of apple pie, turkey, pumpkin pie will be spreading throughout the kitchen.Turkeys

Usually wild turkeys visit us each year but so far we have only seen a few. We’ve had as many as 25 in the past few years.

Halloween is Approaching Quickly

Soon the day for goblins and ghosts will be here. Both children and adults will rush to select their costumes for this special day.

Whether you go trick or treating or to a Halloween party it’s sure to be lots of fun.

For those of you with small children or grandchildren remember to read my children’s story about Stingy Jack. It’s informative as well as entertaining. You will also find many other kids short stories at the site.

“Stingy Jack and the Jack O’Lantern”

My children’s Halloween story “Stingy Jack and the Jack O’Lantern” has a photo of my grandson Marc and the story was written about a young boy, Dylan with the name of another grandson. Now I have to write a story for my third grandson, Ryan. I would appreciate it if those of you with young children or grandchildren would introduce the website to them. After reading the story perhaps you might be interested in rating it. The link is:

The Indiana Voice Journal

Acceptances have been few and far this 2015 for me. But I’m happy to tell my blog readers that persistence pays off. I sent a short story to the above mentioned journal and I was too late for the current issue but they invited me to submit some poetry for the November issue. I immediately responded and an acceptance followed along with a request for a photo to accompany the poem. The poem is titled “The Rainbow” and I just happened to have taken a photo of a double rainbow which I submitted. Both were accepted for the November issue. I will give the link when published but check out the journal:
