Dear Friends:

I spent another beautiful weekend in Iowa among wonderful friends. Friday evening I was with the Heart of Iowa Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society. We all went to dinner together at Cottage on Broad in Story City. The restaurant makes the best tomato basil soup, and they do a good job on salmon, too. I ate there two nights; and, needless to say, I had both.

Such good friends and such good food-dinner with the Heart of Iowa Chapter Friday night. I love getting to be "one of the girls."

I took along a sample copy of the Society's new cookbook Recipes for Touching Lives to show off, and everyone loved it. The cookbooks are expected to arrive at P. Buckley Moss Galleries, Ltd., on November 15, and we will start shipping out the preorders as soon as the books come in. They will also be available for purchase from your favorite Moss dealer shortly thereafter. One dollar ($1.00) of each cookbook purchased will be donated to the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education.

Everybody came to Country Gallery's show Saturday morning before Iowa State University's game and lingered until the last minute, but I think some of them may have missed the kick-off. They all seemed to love my new prints Home of the Cyclones, featuring ISU's Jack Trice Stadium, and Our Little Cyclone, featuring ISU's newest fan.

What a good son! Tim Coonradt of Cedar Falls came to Country Gallery to see me and have me sign one of his mother's prints. His mother passed away with a brain tumor, and he cherishes her memory and her things. His mother was a special ed. teacher who loved to do my cross stitch patterns. She was a very special lady, as all mamas are, and we don't forget them.

After the show Saturday, gallery owner Pat Hill took me to Ames to meet John and Kay Frizzell, who drove me to Osceola for my show with White's Gallery on Sunday. Kay is a staff member of White's Gallery and was instrumental in getting me the reference material for my new ISU prints.

Such lovely framing on the Home of the Cyclones print, and good framing makes a difference! All the galleries I visit do great framing. The picture above was taken at White's Gallery. White's also released a new print titled Small Town 4th of July during my show with them Sunday.

White's wonderful team, L. to R.: Kay Frizzell, Cindy Henry, Carrie White, me, and Kim White.

This Thursday evening I'll attend our Foundation's fundraising dinner in Richmond. I'll be showing with Framecraft in Warrenton, Virginia, on Saturday, November 6, and with Apple Barn Gallery in Buchanan, Virginia, on Sunday, November 7.

Warmth within Warrenton will be released during my show with Framecraft in Warrenton, VA, November 6. For more information, please contact the gallery at 540-341-0001.

Waterfall Visitors will be released during my show with Apple Barn Gallery in Buchanan, VA, November 7. For more information, please contact the gallery at 540-254-6677.
