I Love a Parade

This past weekend, my daughter was chosen to be one of the banner carriers for the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival. It was cold and rainy. But she did a fantastic job. Only about 16 kids were asked and only about 12 showed up.

My daughter helped carry the banner the first half of the parade, then we dropped out and watched most of the rest of it.

Myths are Familiar

Just finished reading this book.

I read this book back in college as part of a Classical Mythology course. I wanted to read it again as I was curious to see how mythology fits in with modern day myths and storytelling. Unfortutately the only copies available from Amazon are from private sellers. I am pretty sure you would find a copy in a library if you are interested in reading it.
