The Making of My First Two CDs

I really became serious about storytelling about five years ago. Up until that time, I just loved to listen to stories and would occasionally tell one. And of course, I always used storytelling as a teaching tool in my classroom and even taught the art of storytelling to my speech and drama students. But for me becoming a storyteller was just a passing fancy, along with being a Broadway actress or a Hollywood director. Then one day, my former high school teacher called me and asked me if I… Continue

I put together a one man show of music and storytelling called From Here to Kingdom Come." I really loved going up the creek bed to visit folks in Kingdom Come. I'd be very interested in hearing your recordings about the place. David

Hello Pam, I see that you have been real active on this site. I hope you had a lot of good times, and storytelling over the holidays and into this new year. I do not know if we can get down to Natasha's this year or not. We always enjoy it a lot. We are not signing up to perform, but hope we can last minute get down there to watch and support. Maybe we will see you on stage there this yet?

Hi, Pam,
We just got back from a 7 day cruise + a few extra days basking in the warm Miami sunshine - I ate - exercised and slept - and rotated these three activities for 9 days. My arm is mobile once again and the old body was able to shake off the winter doldrums for a time. Wishing you well, Mike Lockett

What age group or grade for the Civil War stories? Clara Barton is a good subject for lower grades but plenty of material that can adapt to all ages. Lots on line, lots of books. Good women in the war making a difference angle. There were 100,000 stories at Gettysburg, I like General Lee's horse Traveller and look at the war from the animal viewpoint. I do several about boys in the war drummers and buglers and the boys who kept records at Andersonville prison. Depending where you are I like tieing it in locally how many went from here to serve, when where, any notables? All online info. Was war goods manufactured locally we found out 25,000 guns were made in a small section of our town -lived here 30 years and hadnt heard that! I have sevral family stories from family letters and diaries it is a lucky treasure in that! Anything in your family tree ? Have you heard of Jennie Wade a teen girl was the only civilian killed at Gettysburg. her home is a tourist stop there and they say if you put your finger in the bullet hole i nthe door you will marry in one year and they have many pictures to prove it. They also include the house on ghost tours as they say she still haunts it.

You commented that you liked my blogs so I just thought I would let you know I have added one since I joined the new animal stories group The blog is on Compassion and is on my pages. There is also a response to a discussion on the animal page you might enjoy. I cant imagine why no one thought of animal stories group earlier there are so many animal sotries for those of us who live with more animals than humans it is a natural topic . One of my favorites. Now a historic animal story that is perfection for me- I have a few working on more!

Hi, Pam - I hope to be able to get rid of the sling after one more week. Meanwhile - getting the flexibility and strength back in the old arm is rough. I hope I can get back into working order before too long.

I also hope that all is going well with you and the sales of your new album.

Hi, Pam! Got you nice note of good wishes for my shoulder. It had been okay for a few days - but must have overdone it with the pulleys - cuz - ouch - not fun today. Oh well, so many folks have it worse. I am finding that a lot of people I know have had this done - and all recognize - that it is NOT fun. Hope all is well with you. Shoulder or not - I have programs Thursday and Friday with over 1200 little wiggling bodies ranging from Pk-K up through 14. This will be the third year in a row that I have told stories the Festival of Trees in central to raise $$$ for the Baby Fold. The work with a lot of the special needs kids in our area and help people with adoptions. So this is one of my freebies to help out a good cause. Best regards,
Mike Lockett
