Oh. My. Goodness.

Does anyone remember last week when I said the Oskaloosa Herald was coming to interview me???  oh, heck who knows, maybe I was just thinking I told everyone, but actually didn’t .   I have been SO scattered lately (for good reason, of course) but it has been hectic here.

So, anyway, they did come interview me.  I was thinking, no problem, a little square blurp in the paper.  Who I am and what I am about, right??  no.  Instead a THREE page spread and the front page as well.   YIKES!!!!   ok.  I began to get suspicious when the gentleman needed to get “plenty of pictures”.  Now it all makes sense.

I know it may be hard (or impossible) for you out of town readers to actually READ it, but you get the idea.  🙂    click on each image to see if  it is possible to enlarge them enough.  I am not sure.

I need to go back and read it all again for myself, for like…..the tenth time!!!   😛
