ARC book club read for Feburary

This month I read Big Hair and Flying Cows by Delores J. Wilson. I bought this book at my library sidewalk sale. I picked it up because of the title. LOL

It takes place in Georgia where the Title character works at the family Garage. Well her 2 brothers didn't want to join in the family business so they left home when they could. She drives a tow truck getting people out of jams, or to pick them something at the grocery store, or pick them up to take them somewhere. She rents a house from the son who's father now lives in a nursing home. The old mad escapes from the nursing home and comes in he house since he knows where he hid the key to get in. lol

It really didn't have plot to it the book. More like the month in the life of Bertie Byrd. It was just one funny thing after another. Even though there was no big plot it all gelled.

My art for this month is another journal page.


The background I did with some Ditto spray and some Lindy's stamp gang starburst sprays and some water. and dropped and dragged the paper through the ink. I stamped the brick background stamp by Viva Las VegaStamps! with a rainbow pad. To represent the garage. I printed a picture of Mater for the tow truck  The frame was from the Recollection's The Create Collection. I cut a frame out of the paper, and wrote Byrd and Son's" (the father hoped one or both of his sons got in the family business). I then stamped out on white card stock the title of the book with cow alphabet letters that I got a while back from Viva Las VegaStamps! way before I got on the Design team. :) I had never used them yet so I thought it was a good time to use them. :)


My next book to read in March will be Scoop to kill. See ya next month!
