Summer is the time for vacations, picnics on the beach and reruns on the telly. For me it’s a time to meet a deadline in July for my third novel in my series entitled AS ONE MUST ONE CAN. Many thanks to those of you who responded to my plea for your favorite reruns.

TRAIL OF THE TREFOIL
“What on earth are you doing, child?”
Twelve-year-old Rose read Papa’s upside-down lips and said, “I’m using my head.”
“Surely, that’s not what Miss Daisy meant.”
“Surely it is, Papa. Yesterday at Girl Scouts she stood on her head.”
“Rosy-Posy, you’re a delicate little girl.”
“Miss Daisy says I can do anything I set my mind to.” Rose lowered her one leg, planted her foot on the carpet and reached for her crutch. “I’m going to be a doctor.”
“Remember, you’re also deaf.”
“So’s Miss Daisy. She says all that means is that she never hears anyone tell her ‘no’.”
*Final Note: Juliette Low held the first Girl Guide (later Girl Scouts) meeting at her house in Savannah, GA on March 12, 1912. The troop had 18 members divided into two patrols named the Carnation and the White Rose.
