It was nice to have a long weekend. I took advantage of the time and went to Lincoln for a quilting class by a favorite teacher and visited my grandchildren (and their parents). It was very windy driving back to Kimball.

A few of us enjoyed the visit and talk by C.M. Wendleboe. He has a great sense of humor and is very relaxed. He has another book coming out in June and working on two more. He wants to come back in a year or so.

There are 49 entries in the HighPoint ShutterBug photography contest and they are all great photos. Now the photos can be viewed and voted on for Viewer’s Choice awards. Please come in and visit these entries and cast your vote. Be sure to look around the shelves for all of them. Voting lasts through the 28th. The winners will be announced in Viewer’s Choice and by two special judges.
