The rains don’t stop us

TG Market

The rains couldn’t stop us at the Tower Grove Farmers Market this morning, seen here from my tent. Neither did the heat that followed. I had a great time selling and signing books and talking to people who already bought them. It’s amazing how many have. Come down and talking to me at my booth next Saturday, morning May 23 at Tower Grove Park. Better yet, come see me selling and signing at the German Cultural Society’s  Maifest tomorrow (Sunday) at 5020 West Four Ridge Road in House Springs. (Best to Google Map it or use GPS.) There’s great food, great drink and great music. OK, the sight of me in lederhosen may be a bit much to take, but you’ll get over it. 🙂
