I’m sending a big Thank You to all the Acorns who took the time to comment during the month of September. You went along with me as I preserved food for the girls lunches, saved flower seeds the way Granny taught me, ate some delicious food at a pig pickin, finally got my fall garden planted, helped the boys pick out the Midnight Special, listened to the katydids, cured the toothache-and the itch.
Each comment you leave on the Blind Pig makes it a better place-and I thank each of you:

I want to give you a heads up on some things that will be going on here at the Blind Pig. Starting soon-I’ll be adding a new monthly feature. I’ve written about writers from Appalachia before, mostly poets, but in the future I’m going to make a real effort to support Appalachian Writers. Doesn’t matter to me-if folks write for the masses and the money or if they write for their own creative outlet-I believe they all should be supported and celebrated-so be on the look out for this new feature.
Today is October 1st-this begins the month of black cats, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, and trick-or-treaters. I plan to share some spooky stories during the month-and I hope you’ll help me by sharing some too.
The stories can be funny, silly, eerie, mysterious, scary-just something that fits this month. Got more than one?
Now back to spreading the love. The prize for September is a small altered digital photo-made by me. The winner is…
Janet -Hope you like the prize! And I hope the rest of you Acorns keep commenting!
