Payson Book Festival, Radio Interview, Dried Tangerines: Monday Blog Post

Newest News:

I’ve been working hard along with the rest of our team, to finalize the Payson Book Festival. Finalizing table assignments, setting up author radio interviews, scheduling Facebook posts, there’s a lot to do. Finding equipment is a big one since we didn’t have the festival last year, it’s been 2 years since we’ve gotten our stuff out of storage. It’s been a scavenger hunt let me tell you! Want to get in on the author interviews? Check out Payson Book Festival on Facebook.

I have an interview with KRIM’s Randy Roberson on the 21st at 10am for the book festival. I’ll be on his Community Spotlight program. You can check it out at

I had to run down to Phoenix last week to pick up my permanent retired military ID card. We couldn’t let a trip to the Valley go to waste. We had to make a stop at CostCo. While there I found a product new to me, Dried Tangerines. See the photo for a picture of the bag. These are a major delight. Slightly tangy, orangey, and sweet. I love these things. I only got one bag because I’d never had them before. Next trip though, buying 2 or 3 of these suckers.

Hoping everyone is able to access a covid shot, or two if needed. We’ll only beat this disease if we all work together.
