The Gift

Last summer my sister in law gave me a large old frame. It had sall peices missing and had nails sticking out the back.  She had found it in her fathers garage/ workshop rafters. He had passed away and they were getting the tools ready to sell. 
On the way home I thought and thought of what to do with this big frame. Then it hit me.  I never told my brother what I had in mind, so it was a total shock when she opened a small box for Christmas.  Inside it had a small note that had question marks on it and it said   Mirror mirror on the wall ??? 

  Deb looked at me and I replied, can it mean the bathroom mirror..No   What about the hall mirror..No   Then it must mean our bedroom mirror !!! I took her into  the room and sitting on the Bombay dresser, in front of a mirror I had her present covered with a sheet.

Second Book





Joe Goes Fishing
Authored by Ann Lovell
Illustrated by Kathy Thacker

Going on a fishing trip? What do you need? A rod. Some bait. And fish, of course, both big ones and small ones. Especially written with early readers in mind, "Joe Goes Fishing" is the simple tale of a little boy on a fishing trip. Your early readers will love the story and the illustrations, not to mention the success of reading on their own!



This is our second book that you can order on on Amazon or through the book stores. This one is for kindergarten,an easy reader. We are working on the next in the series about the farm.

The Best Team

I went to the salon today to get some books autographed by the author of our book. She is leaving Fri. to go back to Thailand so I thought it would be a perfect time to get s publicity shot of the two of us. While we were talking we came up with the idea of the third book. She is in the process of finishing the second book. Ann wants to get both children's books done by the end of this year.
