Last Saturday, Per Bastet Publications took part in Oldham County Day in LaGrange, Kentucky. Since I’ve developed a strong tendency to sunstroke, we couldn’t set up on the square, but we were among the pampered few who had tables inside at Karen’s Book Barn.
Last year, Karen’s Book Barn was under different management and up for sale. Before our dazzled eyes, we witnessed three of our favorite people
whispering and giggling conferring. We later learned that those folks, Tony Acree, Frank Hall (former owner of That Book Place in Madison, Indiana), and Lynn Tincher (who has since bowed out of ownership due to lack of time to devote to that business rather than writing), bought it!
ANYWAY, there we were. I had parked way the hell around the corner and down the street, which gave me the chance to snap some doors on the way back.
I found myself right next to a Famous House!
LaGrange has a railroad right down the middle of main street. The town has turned this kiosk to good use.
If you don’t know Kilroy, here’s about Kilroy.
One of Tony Acree’s young daughters received an invitation to paint a sidewalk square — quite an honor.
OF COURSE I had to take pictures of the train for all you railheads out there. Because trains.
Finally, I couldn’t leave without a snappie of this ghost window. I do love ghost windows and doors.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character goes to a civic festival and sees a ghost, literal or figurative.
