Artistic Development ll


This morning was a touch frosty but then the sun shone and we were off to the forest. L was in snap happy mode so Midge and I were coerced into posing for her.
We are a good advert for 'no-nonsense well-priced complete dog meal ' says she.
Hmm, give us an egg now and then you'll REALLY see a shiny coat, says me.

And here we have proof that three polite Polish cabin kit builders can drive up from London, build a cabin in a matter of six hours, turn round and drive all the way back again for a very reasonable price and two cups of coffee each. Now H & L need to get on and paint it before the unseasonable sleet takes its toll on the raw wood. In the mere blink of an eye it will be magically transformed with Cuprinol Shades 'Wild Thyme' to a subtle 'you don't really notice I'm here, do you' sort of effect....

How fun! (and I can't believe how big Midge is getting! Already... They grow so fast. Which may actually be a relief?)

Hello ma/sir,

I will be very glad if you review my eBook on Amazon. I will very much appreciate it if you take you time to review my book.

Below are my Synopsis, Author Name, Title AND Book link

Synopsis
Udo, the village elder, has been raising his grandsons, Eze and Chike, since their father’s early death. When the boys got their hands on their father’s inheritance, they squandered it, and grew pompous and disrespectful of everyone, especially Udo.

As Udo is aging, he is devastated by his grandsons’ lack of respect and caring for anyone. He cannot understand it; his son, their father, was such a good, hardworking man. His hired help, Ngozi, also bears the brunt of the boys’ insults. All she wants to do is help care for Udo, and they belittle her at every turn.

Udo visits his best friend, Uzo, and devises a plan to make his grandsons understand the error of their ways. When Udo puts his plan into play, Eze and Chike respond with deceptions of their own.

Soon, Udo realizes that he must take extreme measures to save Eze and Chike from their own greed and arrogance. What he does next will certainly change the rest of their lives... but will it work?

***

Retaining long-held traditions in a rapidly developing region like West Africa has become a problem among youth. Naturally they want progress; but at what cost?

After travel and research in six countries across West Africa, the author has developed this play to address the issue from an African perspective.

Incorporating West African traditions and sensibilities into a touching play, Happy Grey Hair carries a message for the youth of the region: remember the tradition of respecting elders. After all, you may be the village elder one day yourself.
