LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES

TO ALL MY WONDERFUL WEBSITE WATCHERS!!!
I know, I know, THERE WAS NO POST FOR APRIL. There was supposed to be one, but something happened...not to me!... to the website.  April didn't post.  Error messages showed up.  I gave up.  I had work to do!
Then a storyteller and friend here in Ohio, Janelle Reardon, tried to message me that my website events for 2012 were the only ones listed.  I couldn't respond to her via Vistaprint, because her message seemed to have time-warped from...yep, 2012?!?  Anyhoo, while I was on the road working for the DANIEL BOONE REGIONAL LIBRARY system in the Columbia, Missouri, are this week (in MAY!), Vistaprint cleaned up everything for me and I'm back.  Didn't even know I'd time-traveled!  Without a TARDIS!!! Beat that, Doctor Who!

Thank you to Janelle, to Vistaprint, and to the techno-angels that held my website floating safely somewhere in the ethers.   

NOW, Looky here, looky here!
