Nature Near You

Nature Near You

Sounds silly to have to seek out nature when it appears to be all around us.

But www.naturefind.com has taken it upon themselves to be searchable so that you can find nature near you, where you can enjoy it. (Driving by a crowd of pine trees on your way to work doesn't count, sorry.)

I searched Macon, Ga and found the following day-trip type adventures within 40 miles:

All the Fun We Can Stand

All the Fun We Can Stand

I think we've had all the fun we can stand with the cicadas. I'm glad I was "stationed" in Michigan the last time they came to visit 13 years ago. I'll be planning my 6 weeks vacation 13 years from now. One of my favorite times at the bookstore is early morning - sitting outside in front of the store - eating my fresh banana nut muffin from Ingles, drinking my coffee & reading my Telegraph.

Unfortunately, I've missed those good times for the past two weeks, because I'm afraid a cicada will fly in my hair & cause me to upset the entire table with all my good stuff on it. Or that one of the cute little creatures will dip down & take a bite from my muffin - I know they're not supposed to eat muffins, but they may have heard how good the muffins are, and make an exception. 

First Friday Updates

First Friday Updates

Not only will Ed Grisamore be at the bookstore in downtown Gray, but we'll also have live entertainment on the street!

Ed will be signing his newest book Never Put A Ten-Dollar Tree in a Ten-Cent Hole, plus signing copies of his other books, including True Gris and Once You Step in Elephant Manure, You're in the Circus Forever

Outside the store, we'll have James Anderson & Mason Clark playing some of your favorite tunes on the guitar, plus some of their original work.  I'll be adding more information in the next couple of days on James & Mason. 

Make your plans now to get the family and come down to First Friday in Downtown Gray on May 6th - 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
