Story Teller

I just returned from Canada by way of the Black Hills. We stopped at Custer's Last Stand National Monument and heard the most informative, animated, storyteller. What an amazing account she told. She could have just read from a brochure or rattled off facts and figures, but she used her hands, her voice and her expressions to bring the telling of a great historic event to life. It was a good forty minutes long, but the time flew by. Her facial features were Native American and she used a good deal of Native American sign language to accentuate her story. Someone really got it right when they assigned her to be the message giver. She certainly got the message across. I guess there is more than one way to tell a story.

Cathy,
Glad you're back, and in one piece!

It sounds like the woman telling the events at the Monument deserves a raise, to me!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Cathy,
Hey gal, where's your next entry? I'm waiting impatiently to hear what's happening at your end of the planet! :)

By the way, thanks for stopping by and commenting on, "Not the Colonel's Chicken". Got a kick out of hearing about your husband's encounter with the banty rooster!
