Feels like fall in Chicago. The air in the morning is cool. This is a great time of the year. I’ve had so many, many people tell me the “Rose Donlin Series” would make a great movie. Now we are looking into it. I was told to call or E-Mail the IOWA PUBLIC BROADCASTING CO. So, I did that and directed the producer to my Web-page and my Facebook page. He answered by saying he got some information from the two, but needed more. I sent the 8 books to him and I’ll wait to hear if he received them. His biggest concern was if the story came from IOWA. I explained I had worked 16 years as a nurse at the Akron Care Center. Heard so many stories from the residents, also Colin’s father was born in 1885 and his mother in 1890. I did not forget the stories I heard because I love stories. They are IOWA Stories. The other news from the Clay Co. Fair is, the Play House Theater asked if I would be interested in making the books into a stage play, or have a reading in the theater. Please may I ask all IOWA people to back me by E-Mailing the Iowa Public Broadcasting Co. when I hear from the producer?

We left the Condo the 1st week of September, drove to Iowa and the farm. Packed the books in the truck and hooked up to the Travel Trailer. We arrived in Spencer, at the Clay Co. Fair the afternoon on Friday, prepared my book booth in the Agri. building. It was so hot Friday, until Wed’s. It cooled down late in the afternoon. What a relief that was. The family and old friends and new friends we visited with was wonderful. I set a new record for the sales of my Pioneer Series. How wonderful. I am going to make a call to the Iowa Public Broadcasting to talk to them about making the “Rose Donlin story into a movie. Home again to the farm, put the Trailer away for next year. Traveled to our oldest daughter “Cynthia” who is a Nurse Practitioner in Ottumwa, Iowa. We stayed all night with her and her husband Greg. Their daughter, Molly’s son Wyatt also stayed all night. He is 2 and 1/2 years old and so wonderful. We are back at the Condo in Chicago. The greeting from our little granddaughters, I should have taped. They grabbed my arms and kissed them over and over. Melonie [our daughter] said “Mom I’ll pass on that and just kiss your cheek. Next was grandpa’s welcome, he was setting on the couch and they leaped on him and smothered him with kisses. The love of a 5 year and 4 year old is so special.
