Looking forward to my first visit to Saginaw Township from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15. The good folks at the Country Sampler Store in the Green Acres Plaza have invited me to meet, visit with their customers and sign books if they decide they want to buy.
From my many years as a journalist working at the Bay City Times and the Flint Journal, I had the good fortune to make lots of friends in the Saginaw area. In fact, my wife, Barb, and I built a log home in the Birch Run area while she worked at the FJ and I was at the BCT.
I'm hoping to see lots of old friends in Saginaw. My signings in Bay City have really been quite heart-warming. About half the people who ask me to sign books for them say they remember my columns from the BCT and when I edited True North Magazine. I'm flattered, and humbled, that they want to continue reading my work.
That's why I continue to return to Little House Antiques and Gifts on Water Street in downtown Bay City whenever they let me in the door to do a signing. Kathie and her wonderful staff of sales associates have been terrific. I really feel at home in Little House. That's why I will be there again on Sunday for the Bay City's last Sunday in the City sale.
