Flashback Friday: Happy 5th Birthday Wendy:)

October 1975:
We celebrated my sister's 5th birthday three times:  Once at my Grandma Grauel's house with Uncle Bill, then another at our house with the McIntire side.  On her actual birthday, we're in matching nightgowns as she opened her presents, then after dinner, KE and KB came over for cupcakes and ice cream.

For Halloween that year, I was Donald Duck; W was Mickey Mouse; and TH was Miss America.

School-wise, I was still at the bottom of the social pecking order.  K, M, and I continued to play together at recess, but my teacher still seemed to pick on me.

I think this was also the year we got a new art teacher, and for Halloween, he wanted us to make masks...I wanted mine to look nice, and in the process, never finished it.  So while our class was paraded before the kindergarteners, I was the only one with a 'natural' look.  Yes, I was very embarrassed.

Present Day:
I have a busy weekend planned.  Tonight, provided it doesn't rain, I'm headed downtown to the 1st Annual Autumn On Main Street, to set up my booth with hopefully two other authors.  Tomorrow, I'll be in Washington at the Open Market, a Daviess County Library event, from 10-2, then off to anther festival the rest of the afternoon, in a town whose name is escaping me.  Then it's home for dinner, then karaoke:)

Update:  Had a wonderful time at Autumn on Main St!  Sold 6 books:)  Saturday, sold 4 more at the Open  Market:)  I'm going to have to order more copies of Hotel Stories...Corning Festival, since I arrived at 3pm, I spoke to a few people, but mainly walked around and took pictures.
