Sold out show

Excuse me, what happened to the last month? Whip, whirl, and there it flew, in a cloud of fresh roasted corn, juicy peaches, and sunflowers. The kids are back to school, and half the world's pretending that winter is not coming in a few short months.

Speaking of whirlwinds, Amy has been quite the dervish getting ready for the Benefit in Cape Girardeau next month. Thank you to all of you who jumped in quickly--it sold out in a heartbeat. For those who didn't get tickets, we truly wish you could join us, but every inch of the space is full. We can't cram another person in.

For those who are miffed that children cannot attend, we understand...but the law is the law...and to quote that nasty lady in the Wizard of Oz, "Ya wouldn't want to go against the law!"

The event benefits Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship, one of the wonderful local service organizations that made Sahara's last year on the planet a little more tolerable. The volunteers and horses there gave that girl so much joy--something to get excited about, and something to hope for.

They need our help--and Sahara would undoubtedly look you in the eye and tell you the same thing. And whether you give $21 or $2100, know that you are giving southeast Missouri's sick and disabled kids a truly healing experience.

Send me an email if you want to give.
