Bittersweet news to me. On the one hand I am always aware of Sharon's here behind every article I see & it's a nice feeling. On the other hand I'm thrilled that you will be writing that long overdue book. I'll be watching in anticipation for it my friend.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Well yee-haw and apple-pan dowdy! It's about merry ol' time you got back on that book, Sharon. I'll join others in the line for my copy. Course now, if you have an official book signing I guess most of us would come from miles around to get an autographed copy! (And we can swap plants in the process, eh?)

Shoe, that's the best idea you've had in the longest time!!

It's exactly what we'll do, a big plant swap/dinner on the ground/book signin' gatherin'!!
You bring some of those heirloom tomatoes, OK? Group hug

Oh Sharon, I am so pleased for you. From the short time I have been reading your works I have often thought that it needed to be saved.

I think it is about time that you put in into a book.

Believe me it will be a gift that others will treasure over the years.

Bless your heart, WRITE ON!!!!

Y'all are very kind.

Somebody asked me earlier today how many Ninna/Aunt Bett articles I'd written and honestly I'm not sure. There are about 200+ on Dave's old Garden, many on Cubits and many here on ATP in addition to two or three others scattered here and there on sites where I've been asked to write. I've been writing them for about 6 years now.

I'm about to run out of words, so it's time to get them all together, rewrite those that must be rewritten, insert the newest ones and get them into some kind of order. So that's my plan.

Thanks so much for your encouragement, and I promise you'll hear me cheering when I finally get it all done.
