"Thanks Kathleen. I'm glad you like my woodburned designs also. Trying to give all mine the Hawaiian or tapa print look. (since I live in Hawaii) I sell the majority of my gourds to the tourists. I want to try to keep the natural, organic look…"

"Exquisite! Just love the brilliant colors on these. Do you have more for sale? I would like to make some tropical ornaments, as I live in Hawaii. Doubt though that they would turn out this beautiful!"
"Very pretty. Love all your colorful gourds! Are they all done with the prisma color pencils (think I read that on one of your others) just recently ran across zentangle on the Internet, are you familiar with it?"

Hi Kathleen...(my moms name was Kathleen) ( Elizabeth) I used to live in Atl.( 41 yrs.) and have been to the falls many times and even walked a portion of the trail from there. I once gave a ride down to the interstate to a fellow who was just finishing the trip from the north end.He was a teacher from Michigan and was hitching rides home. Hoooeee he smelled awful but I was happy to help him and am still in awe of his achievement. God, how I would like to go with you!!!! Oh well,I know you will have fun. be careless!!!!! Paul
Hi again Kathleen........well, I'm not Phillip But I am jealous. I too have wanted all my life to walk the trail but, alas I'm much too worn out now to do it.I hope you will be able to update us all as you progress.Will you be joining the trail near Charlotte or are you going to Amicolola falls to the trail head? Rotsa ruck!!
Hi Kathleen........I'm new and searching for someone in my area to compare notes/ ideas with and maybe hang out too( not romantically) and you're the closest I've found so far. I guess you know David and Ronna at Turtle Feathers. I get most of my supplies from them. Nice folks. Do you know of anyone closer to me who does gourds? I live in the Landrum sc area. Paul
thanks, yes, ther are two big shows here annually, the Hot Tamale Fiesta, and our Choctaw-Apache Powow. Tamales were originally a native american food, they are made locally, by a few residents and made the old native american way with no chili powder. in fact there is a tamale plant here that ships to store all over the country if you look in the frozen food section, they are usually for sale there. Zwolle Tamales, I have a daughter that lives in Richmond ,Va. and they are for sale there. Also, I bought book recently about dragons. Dracopedia. I bought it from Edward R, Hamilton Bookseller Co. they do not have a internet connection, you have to buy from their catalogue, but, they are cheap in comparison to other companies. I paid $7.95 for this book and it is great. It lists for $26.99. I did not know there where so many kinds of dragons. amazing what you can learn. If you want the address I will send it to you.I know, I love this G.A. E. , I have made several good friends . Mary
