I haven’t written much creatively lately, the result of teaching a comp. class during summer school with a full-time administrative job. So, to freshen up the blog, how about a photo essay on the subject of Payton Elizabeth Pulling, my granddaughter? Payton the laughing girl; Payton with the Patriarch, PaPaw Pulling; Payton with her Mommie Bear; and Payton cutting up with “Tant’Ann.”

If some readers would take my posting of these pictures a self-serving act of  infliction on this blog’s readership, so be it. I stand guilty (and unabashed) as charged!
