Autumn has arrived! We had a great summer visiting here and there which took Joe to Hereford with Irene’s show at hArt and to Derbyshire and to Wales with her various workshops and holidays. Then there was our appearance at Borderline – the Carlisle Book Festival. We had an attentive audience of budding authors with a lively exchange of ideas and plans.
At last Sue and I met up with Andy of Stanwix News, Scotland Road, Carlisle to thank him for his unfailing support. Our inspirational characters Mrs Green and Grandad are his local customers and his shop has appeared in both Joe and the Window and Joe and the Camera ! He has kept a stock of these for his customers and handed over the entire sales taking no commission, greatly helping the funds. He is always busy stocking and re-stocking as he is open from 4am until 7.30pm everyday except Sunday when he can close at 4pm. What a work schedule!
