After the Ball is Over

The combination of bookstore and art gallery makes for dynamic synergy. Participation of the Painted Horse Gallery in this weekend's "Fall for Art" tour made for very good business at Dog Ears Books, too. Steve and Deb Zinger's marvelous homemade gingerbread and truffles earned us the honorary (everyone was saying it) "Best Refreshments" award. (Thank you, Zingers!!!) After the crowds cleared, Woody and Bonnie (gallery owners and artists, pictured above), Steve and Deb and I kicked back with a few other friends in front corner of the bookstore. (Woody loves it that people "hang out" at Dog Ears.) We were a happy group of campers. Over a hundred people came through today, and over half of them didn't even have brochures to be initialed.

I read the first two pages of an old book first thing this morning, but that's as far as I got. It was a busy day!

I'm happy for you guys and feel priveleged to be one of those lucky enough to hang out in the gallery/bookstore. You can be proud of what you have accomplished.

I buy books just to be able to hang out - I don't actually read them.

I so wish I were there with you in Northport! When I read about Northport meetings, events and social occasions I can hear thoughtful conversations and laughter. Who wouldn't want to be part of such socializing? And what a wonderful photo of Bonnie, whose smile is as magnificent as I knew it would be. Thank you for sharing books, thoughts and photography.
