The US Oyster Festival

Morning all,

This young man was the prize of my weekend, other than some of the women flirting with me. He is in school and is a writer also among other good attributes. He is very impressive.
This young birthday girl was given my book as a present. She was so sweet.

Here are some more photos of my part of the 2021 ‘US Oyster Festival’s’ two day event, on the St. Mary’s county fairgrounds. It was very active, a lot of foot traffic and I had a good spot towards the back. I did pretty well for the small time writer that I am and feel respectful and privileged, when someone wants to read my words – it is very exciting. People do not flock to poetry, but I truly appreciate your love and support. If you feel moved, please support me further by giving me a glowing review on Amazon and/or my Facebook writing page. Please feel free to review my books here too.

My friend, Ellen, from Thomas Stone High School stopped by to say hi. It was good to see her.
My real good friend Norma. I love her, but she doesn’t know it. Well she might know it now.

My friend ( Wallace Spooner ) Wally stopped by to say hi and he some of these photos. Thanks buddy.

Look at the nice smile on her beautiful face. I can’t remember who, but one of us told the other a joke when the photo was taken.

How ya like my hat? Red hat

Is this story fact or fiction?

I thought this was a brown hat, but it’s not – it’s a red hat. Do you know how I figured that out? Well, a guy at the thrift store told me he collects hats that say what color they are. Then he said, “I have blue, green, brown and a few other colors, but I need red.” So I bought it for a dollar and tried to sale it to him for a profit. I took it off and offered it to him for five dollars. He looked at me in disgust and started too walked away. I quickly decided to give it to him if he took some photos of me wearing it, so I could use one of the photos for this story. He took it from my hand while saying, “I want to look at it first.” He then turned around and started to walk away.

I yelled, “Where are you going?” He didn’t respond, but hastened his pace toward the door, but before he was out of the store, I held my receipt up and yelled, “That guy is stealing my hat.”

The cashier stopped the man and asked, “Is that your hat?”

He said, “I’m holding it aren’t I!”

“That doesn’t make it yours. This guy has a receipt.” She took a photo of the guy holding the hat and said, “I am calling the police”

“You don’t have to do that.” then a second later said, “What can I do to make it right?”

“You can start by giving it back to the rightful owner, but he can still press charges.”

He handed it back and I asked, “Do you still want it?”

He looked at me in bewilderment and replied, “Guess so.”

I put it on and had the teller take a few photos then told the man, “It’s yours for twenty dollars.”
