Today I’ll be choosing finalists for my 2006 Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women, and believe me, it won’t be easy. I wish I could award a scholarship to everyone who applied, but of course I can’t, so it’s push up the sleeves and decide time.
If you do not win, the 2007 program will be beginning soon. Watch the website for details.
On a personal note, my good friend Larry Webster is having surgery tomorrow and will need all your prayers and good thoughts. My stepmother, Edith Lael, is still hospitalized but back in Grand Coulee, where she has so many devoted friends and family members. She is in good spirits and that, of course, is an indicator that she will heal rapidly. Also, Dad won’t have to drive 150 miles a day over bad roads to visit her.
I have just finished the second of two anthology stories, written since Christmas! After the scholarship judging, I will immediately begin “The McKettrick Way”, the 2007 Special Edition scheduled for December.
We’re busy around here, but thriving. Color me grateful.
