I've told many tales from storytelling manuals at Toastmasters for the last four years. I had enough to fill one book. Shortly after publishing it, I created an instruction edition. Toasties Teacher has over two dozen hints on writing and publishing.

Kissing the Blarney stone may give the kisser the gift of eloquent speaking. However, it isn't east. The kisser has to lay down and lean over backwards. Notice the people 130 feet below the tower?

Storytelling at the Puyallup RV show. They created a picnic area with fire ring. It was called S'mores Center. Kids could roast marshmallows and listen to tall tales.

TOASTMASTERS CONTEST WINNER
Toastmasters speech contests are a great way to hone your public speaking. Two years ago I never would have gotten in front of a group to speak. Toastmasters has taught me a lot.

We watched the Seahawks play football. They played the Baltimore Ravens and won! 35 to 6. We decided to play some football ourselves out in the yard. I caught my very first catch. OOF! A football is really heavy. It was also my last catch. Now I'm on the injured list with multiple fractures all over my body.

More Goodies! Gramps makes yummy fruitcakes. They have all kinds of dried fruit and nuts in them. There's figs, dates, blueberries, cranberries and three kinds of raisins. Plus, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple. It like cherries the best. Fruitcake goes so fast; he has to make four or five each holiday season.

Last night a huge windstorm blew in. Trees were swaying in the wind. Rain poured. All of a sudden, lightning flashed and thunder boomed. Chrismouse and I came straight out of bed. I grabbed a flashlight real quick. The power didn't come back on until 6PM. I sure like electricity.

I went back to the North Pole to give a report to Santa. Lots of bad things happened this week. All the little kids were very good. Santa's sad that they have to suffer because of bad people running around. Hopefully all the good people will still have a merry Christmas regardless of the world's problems.
Poinsettias are so cheerful for the season. I decided to sit on a shelf above them all day. Too bad they don't have a fragrance. Oh well.
We went to the flower shop to purchase a couple poinsettias. We even got one for Great-grandmother.
