And my beloved first Mom, Terry White, will be at the Windmill tomorrow!!!
  Ann Foley and Terry L. White will be signing their books (above) at the Earth Day Celebration tomorrow at Spocott Windmill complex starting at 9 am.

And for those of you who don't know, Terry was my first Mom. I was born under her bed and she petted me every day. She has written a LOT of books including the ever-popular Chesapeake Series...that begins with CHESAPEAKE HARVEST.
I know I ran this news last week, but it's still good. Earth day at Spocott usually means you can buy real windmill-ground, whole wheat, flour.

The Windmill was built by Jim Richardson and his son-in-law Jim Brighton in 1972.  The Miller's House is furnished in period accessories and is also on display. The White Building is the Castel Haven School, built in 1870 by John Anthony LeCompte, builder of the original Spocott Windmill. The building, a Victorian schoolhouse, has been restored, properly furnished, and is dedicated to the many students and teachers that walked through its doors for the next 40-50 years. 
 One of those students (there are books inside with his name in them) was Arline's Dad, Arlington Adkins, who went to school in the schoolhouse.
Well, bye for now. Arline is pushing me out of her chair.
