Hello my friends, and Happy Friday (and to my friends in the US, happy start of a long weekend!). For your weekend reading pleasure, I’ve posted a short story to my Medium page: After a prolonged absence, the Birchmont Village Potato Festival was back and in full swing, with plenty of fellowship and merrymaking–and potatoes!–when a shocking discovery threatened to put the festival in jeopardy. Read what happened “The Time the Potato Festival Finally Returned to Birchmont Village Only to Nearly Be Lost Again”–a never-before-published story just added to my collection (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village, and part of an expanded edition due out later this year (just in time for the holidays!)
