Trundlebed Tales Rolls Out New Brochure for 2019

I’ve updated on my brochure for 2019. Take a look!

Small View of my Brochure

Remember Trundlebed Tales is more than just in person presentations and a blog, I have a websiteYouTube channel, podcastTwitterFacebook, etc. Find my links all around the web. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at my trading cards.

But I think it’s most important that I speak in person. If you want to hear me, be sure to pass this on to your local library, museum, or event.

Memorial Day 2017

Thinking of you this Memorial Day.

Sarah's Notebook

It’s once again Memorial Day where we take a weekend and remember those who have passed on both those members of the military who gave their last full measure of devotion, those who passed on later, and our own lost family and friends. I hope to see you at your local services.

The Smithsonian explains where Memorial Day celebrations come from:

Time explains why Memorial Day became a Three Day Weekend:

Jack Benny in Bloom

Revisited this earlier this week.

Sarah's Notebook

I became a Jack Benny fan in a strange way. I had heard of Jack Benny before of course, but I’d never seen his show. Then I saw the PBS Special Jack Benny: Comedy in Bloom and I was hooked. I’ve been listening to his radio show regularly on Sirius XM Classic Radio ever since. Before I hadn’t bothered because my mother doesn’t like his show, but I don’t understand why not, it’s great. However, I thought maybe an introduction would help other people enjoy it as much as I do. Be sure to read the comments, the one from Old Time Radio is especially important with a few corrections.

Things to know about Jack Benny and his show. Here are 20 things you ought to know, plus 4 links.

1. Jack’s theme song is Love in Bloom. Jack always thought it was stupid that it was, “what does my act have to…

Gene Stratton Porter Easter

Revisit Easter.

Sarah's Notebook

Easter Trundlebed TalesIf you’ve been following the blog you know that Gene Stratton-Porter is an author who is very special to me. Stratton-Porter was my Grandma Uthoff’s favorite author and Laddie: A True Blue Story is her favorite book. So for Easter this year, I decided to read aloud the description of how her family celebrated Easter with Easter eggs in the late 19th century.
