Saturday Sally/February 28

The Saturday Sally this week is a nice little journey from New England to Mississippi to Wales.

Another wonderful poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow here.

And here is a review of a book I loved and wrote about.

For inspiration, encouragement, bravery, faith, and hope, you'll want to visit here.


  1. How cool is that! I love Saturday Sally and thanks for stopping by and visiting! I also linked to your wonderful book report! Have a warm weekend!

  2. Oh, thanks, Maggie! If you come back, I've wanted to tell you that April is my Eudora month. I'm going to read just her for the whole month in honor of her 100th birthday!

  3. Oh, Nan - Eudora Welty will bring you joy and laughter and tears. She writes in a fine and gentle voice about the American South.

    Do you know about the Eudora email system? There's a great story about how that came to be named, and I'm writing an entry in my Reading Diary about it.

    April will be fine indeed, in spite of one of my blog friends from UK who calls it the "cruelest month"

  4. Janice, thank you. I have read some of her work over the years, and have actually written a little here about a few (you could type her name into the search bar if you want), but I still have a lot on my shelves I've never read. I'm looking forward to immersing myself in EW during her birthday month. I'll be looking for your entry about the Eudora mail. A long while ago, this was our mail program. And I'm a big fan of April. :<)

  5. Wow! Eudora all April! That is so cool Nan! We are doing a reading institute and read her in Dec/Jan. We did loads of blogging on her through the 4Ws blog. Please stop by and visit!

  6. I'd love to be down there come April, Maggie! I'll head over to the address you gave me. Thank you.


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
