My articles offer beautiful scenery, unusual individuals and extraordinary venues. Enjoy the variety on a monthly basis. Travel offers unbelievable opportunities to learn, grow and entertain. Come along on my journey.

Whether it’s a trip to Switzerland or New York City, I find stories to share with you. I live near Dallas. Frequent visits to Houston and Portland, Oregon to visit my grandchildren give me a chance to comment on those areas more frequently. I find unique places to explore wherever I travel.

Paperweight by Melissa Ayotte

I am a card carrying member of the Paperweight Collectors of Texas. Read about my uncommon hobby. I love the beauty and artistry. The technology fascinates my husband.

We all need a hobby as all work and no play is unhealthy. Sing in the choir, whittle some wood, collect comic books, but don’t let it become addictive. Oh, and be sure to exercise, too! And volunteer. Did I say “all work and no play is unhealthy?” It’s true!

Magazine Article

Please read the article published in the Texas Electric Coop magazine about A New Trail in Texas. Bonham, Texas, the county seat for Fannin County, is home to the largest quilt barn trail in Texas. Hear about the community effort for a new reason for a road trip in Northeast Texas. Stop at the Bonham Chamber of Commerce for a map. Take a walking tour to see the 20 quilt blocks on various buildings in this quaint town with fabulous old homes and a town square full of little businesses. Then follow the winding roads to discover the squares which look like quilt blocks on the barns and other buildings.

My articles are published in magazines, newspapers, and newsletters. I customize all my presentations, whether for a church group or civic activity.
