Happy Herman's Hideaway

Body
Hello there, my San Saba loves, and Happy Columbus Day! Writers used to speak of penning the words they wrote which sounds so romantic, so personal. The founders of our country actually dipped their hopes in ink wells to write their brilliance of our future. I sit at a keyboard because mom fears I would dip my nose in the ink, eat the feather pen and make chicken our national food.
