Don't give up on me.
I'm vacationing in my home state of Mississippi for a week. I'll return next Monday or thereabout. I come here as often as possible. My home is on the Nature Coast of Florida but my roots are planted Way Down South in Dixie! In fact, I visited Shiloh Battle Ground just over the border into Tennessee yesterday and . . . oh, my! Filled me up. I wanted to sing real slow . . . Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton . . . Can you hear my accent!
I'm sitting at my sister's computer, very much out of whack because that's just the way I am. I need to be in my own space, at my own computer, with all my books and stuff around me in order to write. I just wanted to check in, as we get hits on this blog every day from different parts of the world. Thanks for that! Please make me happy and leave us a response.
I'll leave a few pictures of Shiloh. I'm such a southern woman! My second published book is about the Civil War, and there's a poignant storyline that includes the Battle of Shiloh in that book. Wish you would read it. Just go to any online bookstore anywhere on earth and key in The Mississippi Boys. Or click here to Amazon.com. You're going to love it.
I'll be posting to one of my other blogs, As Thy Days, when I return to Florida . . . posting about Shiloh, one of the most nostalgic places in the South. Please watch for that post, and I'll tell you how I felt when I saw that thousands of Confederate soldiers were buried in five different trenches on Shiloh Ground—southern soil—while the Yanks were buried in marked graves in a special place in the cemetery. Again, it filled me up.
