Wayside Country Stories

This is a really exciting post to write.

It’s Veteran’s Day, so T1 and T2 are home.  Naturally I headed to the country store for a little liquid courage (don’t look at me like that – it’s Diet Soda.  Which might be worse than a bottle of wine when I think about it) and snacks to keep the troops anesthetized and quiet while I work.

T2 and I walked in to find Nancy Tschorn, the Ma half of the Mom&Pop store, wearing a mischievous grin. Oh and her uniform. I specify that because we have walked into find her wearing a cow costume and a little Red Riding Hood outfit (it was Halloween of course) and a mischievous grin which should tell you how good her blog is going to be.
Did I mention she was bubbling over to tell me about her blog? that I’ve been suggesting she start for sometime because she is a cauldron of creativity and not only that, she has thousands of stories.

She told a few of these stories a few years ago in a book – Wayside Country Stories – that she self-published on her own to great acclaim from the few lucky people who got to read them (please join me in badgering her to make an ebook out of them).  A member of a now-dissolved but legendary and scandalous writing group (that’s as much as I can say, but don’t let our bifocals fool you – we were all very, very scandalous), she read some of these stories to us, but we knew she was just scratching the surface.

Today she started her blog, Wayside Country Stories, and opened the vault.Her stories are full of humor and humanity, and I’m so excited to add it to my Blogs I Love page.  Check it out. You’ll be happy you did.
