Preston Library with sidewalk sign announcing our 7:00 PM show.
The city of Preston is located in a scenic valley with a river running through it. Whichever direction you take out if town, you are treated to an uphill climb and then a panoramic view of the valley below.
The slightly over cast day gave magical haze to the countryside.
The windmill above and the farmhouse below stand as proud reminders of past successes.
Current farms and cattle provide pleasant viewing.
Nancy spots a fox trotting through a field.
We slow down. He stops to check us out. Looks like something is in his jaws.
After the fox moves on, we drive another 200 yards to spot young foxes playing along the road bank.
They quickly scurry to the safety of the tall grass. We know our pictures will be blurry.
We content ourselves with taking a few photos of wildflowers, which patiently wait for us to point and shoot.

Library Director Beth Anderson introduces me.
Adults sit on the chairs and mothers sit on the floor with their children.
Nancy and I wish to thank Director Beth Anderson and assistant Darrellyn Barrett for inviting us to the Preston Library. Also, we thank all the adults who came to watch the show but especially all of the really cool Moms who sat with their children, extending me the privilege of telling a story to their family.
