WELCOME TO MY WORLD: THE LAST BOOK BEING PUBLISHED IN S.F. SD.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “ENJOY A NEW BEGINING EACH DAY” Our last book is being printed today in Sioux Falls, SD. I am so excited, I started writing when I retired from nursing in 2002. I was 68 years old when I wrote the first book “Rose’s Betrayal And Survival” I am now 80 years old and finished my last book. It has been challenging, tiring, and stressful at times but best of all, rewarding because I have loved doing it. I love the story, Rose has been part of our life, she appeared to be real at times. We have been told many times the books would make a good movie. http://www.collmannwarehoue.com

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: “ROSE’S BETRAYAL AND SURVIVAL”

QUOTE OF THE DAY:”TRUSTING IS SOME TIMES HARD TO DO”–BOOK 1-“ROSE’S BETRAYAL AND SURVIVAL”–Rose wondered if the snake was as frightened as she was. Rose reached down and grabbed her boots, turned them up side down, and shook them fiercely while sitting with her feet upon the bed. She leaned over to reach her clothes that were lying on the chair. She lifted them carefully, dressed, and left her bed unmade. She would need to shake all of her blankets before getting back into bed.–www.collmannwarehouse.com

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: 5 AND 6 YEAR OLDS GRADUATED WEARING CAPS AND GOWNS!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: THE DAY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!–The 5 and 6 year-olds walked in wearing their caps and gowns. They were graduating from Preschool and Kindergarten. Morrison Rose, daughter of Dr. Jeff and Melonie, was one of the Kindergarten graduates. The program was perfect. They recited poems and sang patriotic songs. They each held up a baby picture to show their growth until now. It was pretty emotional to see how they’ve changed. Before a delicious lunch was served, we all went outside and watched as their classroom butterflies were released to freedom. One of the butterflies flew right into Gennings {Melonie’s daughter} eye! The teacher said it was because the butterfly knew how sweet Gennings is! It was a wonderful event for all of us! “It doesn’t get any better than this”—ROSE DONLIN-THE NEXT GENERATION–CHAPTER 23–Margaret looked into Gerrit’s warm eyes when she took the clothing from him. Their hands touched and she knew she would never have to be afraid of Oliver again.—My book is coming soon.–www.collmannwarehouse.com

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: BOWLING PARTY WITH PRE-SCHOOL AND KINDERGARDEN CHILDREN.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:”LOVE IS ENDLESS”—Colin and I left the Condo and headed for the school to pick up 6 year old Morrison and 4 year old Gennings. They had an end-of-the-year school outing at the bowling alley. What a joy watching 4 year olds carrying the bowling ball to the line and trying to throw it down the lane. Most of the time it bounced from one side to the other. Once in awhile the ball headed straight down and suddenly shifted to one side of the pins at the last second and knocked down one or two of them. Morrison had 69 and Gennings had 58. After an hour and a half, they were both ready to admit they were tired.–It doesn’t get any better than that—From the New Book–“Rose Donlin-The Next Generation”–CHAPTER 12–Brandon decided he had to help Oliver steal the cows and calves he had helped Gerrit and Wyatt raise. His hands were shaking when he put the claw of the hammer to take out the staples that were pounded in the fence post that held the wire to the post.—-www.collmannwarehouse.com also http://www.facebook.com/collmannwarehouse

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “WATCHING YOUR FLOWERS GROW IS LOVING NATURE AT IT’S BEST”—The flowers in the up-right wire flower pot are planted and have been rained on the last few days. The rest of the flowers are all looking beautiful as well. The little girls, Morrison and Gennings asked for a garden, so, we are planning to plot out a small area in the back yard.—-The last book has been edited by Julie Ann Madden from the Hometowner in Akron, Iowa and Colin. Now, the book is in Knoxville, Iowa being edited by Linda Fischer. I’m currently working on the cover picture and the back cover.—–“Rose Donlin-The Next Generation”–Frank had left Rose’s cabin heading home to eat dinner with Clara before returning to Oklahoma City’s lumber yard. As he passed the road leading into the city he met a lovely looking young woman in a buggy heading toward Rose’s homestead. The young woman rode directly up to Rose’s cabin and walked up to the door, then, knocked loudly. Rose opened the door and looked at an angry young woman she had never seen before.—–www.collmannwarehouse.com

WELCOME TO MY WORLD:”DISAPPOINTMENT THE FIELDS ARE NOT WET”

QUOTE OF THE DAY:”LEARN SOMETHING EVERY DAY”—Colin and I have traveled a lot from our Condo in Chicago to our farm in Northwest Iowa but this trip home to the farm was a trip for us to remember a long time. We knew it was going to be stormy but we thought we could beat it. We stopped at a drive through for coffee. Colin rolled down his window and drove away. He pushed on the up button to roll it back up and the window refused to move, no matter how he worked on it. Then, it started to rain. The rain storm was now over us. We pulled over at a weight station and Colin tore apart a box after emptying books out of it. He stuck it down into the window frame, then, slammed the top in the door. The storm lasted from Iowa City to the turn north on Hwy 29. He was a little wet but we made it. Today the window is being fixed.—From the new book—“Rose Donlin-The Next Generation”—CHAPTER 20—They crossed the creek and rode back to where the swimming water was the best. The boy jumped off and yelled, “This is my sister, Rainbow End pointing to a small dark skinned girl of seven. That was the first meeting.—wwwcollmannwarehouse.com
