Zeke's peddler wagon is coming down the road! I wonder what he has today. Zeke hops down from his seat, wearing a floppy hat and a gray coat, with sleeves much too short for his arms. His eyes sparkle and his mustache twitches, and he seems as tall as a weather vane on the top of the barn. Removing his hat, he bows low. “Well, good day, folks. What can I help you with ? This here is a regular gen'ral store on wheels! Anything you want or need - I have it. Needles or tubs, buttons or pans - jewelry and fancy perfume, too!" As you walk around the strange wagon, your eyes widen with wonder. There are pans, kettles, tools, and things you never saw before. Through the back door, you can see bolts of cloth, kegs, wash tubs, and hundreds of little boxes. Follow Zeke from blog to blog, and at each spot you'll find something new.

Love Yvonne's new book! Through the friendship of a peddler, a blind granny, and blacksmith's family, they learn of forgiveness and faith. Thanks, Marijo!

How comforting to spend a day with Vonnie! And to spend more time with Zeke the Peddler is always a treat. Thanks, Marijo. :)
