(Main Street in Rebersburg)
Have you ever given your child a treat not because he was very, very good but because he was very, very bad? That’s what I did at the Forefathers Bookshop and Main Street Yarn Open House on Saturday.
My darling almost-2-year-old looks happy here, but he was starving hungry (my fault) and had no time for 5-pound hardback biographies of historical figures or colorful skeins of yarn. Our visit to the Open House event was short and sweet. Short, because I couldn’t convince my son to stroll the aisles of history with me. Sweet, because I bought him an ice cream sandwich just to have a few minutes of peace. (Yes! They sell ice cream treats and potato chips there.)
Keith Bierly, the owner of the bookshop, was so helpful. I mentioned that I was looking for some of Winston Churchill’s writing. While I juggled a toddler, a melting ice cream sandwich, and my unused camera, he came back moments later with Churchill’s 6-part series on WWII. I said, “I’ll take it!” And packed everything up for home where I fed my boy some home-grown chicken. He went to bed happy.
Forefathers Book Store and Main Street Yarn: I’ll be back by myself sometime soon. (Save an ice cream treat for me!)
Enjoy your home,
