Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


How exciting for you and BD!!
I'll bet everything will look very cool on the show. Do you get a DVD or something, too? Eh, I guess probably not, but it would be nice. I mean, since they even give people pictures of their insides now when you have medical tests run...

Whoo-hoo! PBS celebs! I watch PBS up here via KSPS in Spokane. D'you think they'll carry it? It'd be almost like meeting you and BD in person!

Yes Carolyn - they will send us the show on dvd. I don't know when but I'm so looking forward to it. And if you want to "meet" BD on dvd, check out National Geographic's doccumentary "Nightmare at Jamestown". He's one of the talking heads on the main featuer and he's on even more on the special features part about the National Water Trail.

After a bit of a rocky start yesterday morning, my day blossomed into one long stretch of interesting times. There was ice on the roads when I left, but only a thin layer that was cracking up fast as the angle of the sun spread out across the earth. Schools opened late, so the buses and I drove in together and I passed clusters of bundled children awaiting transport. Normally I travel this length of highway solo but it's a divided road – it was an easy trip into town.

My morning was taken up with a budget committee meeting; productive, but lengthy. We have a new board president and though each year I explain to the whole board our unique budget process, this was her first up close and detailed look at how it works. It is legal and it is effective, but it's weird and not something I share at gatherings of librarians because it would take too long to explain it. We are the sole hybrid library in Virginia, organized on a couple of promises and handshakes. It works and that is enough.

But I hurried home before 1 o'clock, because we had guests coming!

Yep. Maryland Public Television is doing a documentary on the National Park's John Smith Water Trail and they needed to interview Mr.Jamestown.

My den is going to be on T.V.!

Well, so is my BD, but what makes me chuckle is that this corner of the house with all the books and room enough for a chair and with at least a glimpse of the Virginia countryside ... well... those books in the background are all my knitting and spinning books! I love the magic of television.

The whole process was interesting and fun. Everyone wanted to get in on the action, particularly Scamp, the newest of our dogs. She was sure viewers wanted to know what a great place this is for dogs. Jack dropped in but he panted so heavily he was banished to the back porch. Socks doesn't like strangers in her house or even on her property and has a hidy-hole where she spent the afternoon. Priss, alone, was the perfect hostess, greeting everyone when they arrived, then retiring to watch Dog T.V. (the fire in the wood stove).

It was a grey rainy day – which is why the filming was done indoors – they had originally wanted to film outside along the riverbank. They were finished about 4:30 and we spent the rest of the evening talking about it – and watching an old movie. I'm not sure when the show will be broadcast but when they let us know I'll be sure to post the date and airtime here.
