Long ago, in a village not very far away, there lived a family who produced a remarkable number of grocers and postmasters. I did not turn out to be one of them. I took after the other side of the family, more often peopled with auctioneer’s, sheriffs, elected officials and other show-offs. But I grew up in a grocery store and the post office next door. And some part of me always wanted one of my own. It’s finally happened. I’m opening my own little shop right here and selling my own hand or head-made products and shipping them from my own little P.O. (it’s actually a table, but close enough).
First off the line is a new holiday CD, not of music, but of the collected holiday episodes of my radio series, “These Ozarks Hills.” And it’s not just the holidays we’re now in the middle of. There’s Groundhog Day, April Fool’s Day, Equinoxes, Solstices and several versions of Halloween, Christmas and Thanksgiving. I think you’ll like it.
Also available are Blackberry Winter Band’s “In These Ozarks Hills” and the soundtrack from the movie, “Winter’s Bone.”
Coming soon is the book version of the entire radio series to date, from May, 2007 through December, 2011. In honor of the timeless Ozarks word describing stories real or made up as “Windies,” this complete text has been titled “The Windy Hills Collection.”
Come by and visit with me, won’t you? Set a spell. Tell me your stories of the Ozarks. And sample my wares.
