  2. Hurrah for Scout’s drawing and your poem. I would love to share this in my Bedecked In Autumn Gallery. Would you like to send those as an image poem to me? Let me know. I plan on creating a mini-gallery for Slice of Life Tuesday in a few weeks.

    • Would be honored for this to be in your gallery, Carol, in addition to the “wish come true” photo of Scout & Micah, with the blackjack poem. I will work on this Scarecrow image poem to send you – and thank you!
