Lori Scott's Thanksgiving Visit

By Mary Vee

If you like to giggle, laugh, and be silly then you'll like the Meghan Rose series written by Lori Scott.  Some titles from the series are:

Meghan Rose Has Ants in Her Pants - Meghan Rose wants a pair of gravity defying shoes called Kangaroozies, and she just can’t wait to get them. How will she deal with the ants in her pants?

Meghan Rose on Stage - Meghan Rose wants to take part in the school talent show, but she can’t sing or dance or even burp very well. Will her braggy classmate Lynette steal the show?

Meghan Rose Gets All Dressed Up:  Meghan Rose doesn’t own Pickle brand socks, Pickle brand shirts, or Pickle brand ANYTHING. How can she be pretty for picture day wearing her plain old clothes?

Two new Meghan Rose titles will be released November 28th: Meghan Rose Takes the Cake and Meghan Rose Knows it All... plus two more in spring 2011

Award winning author, Lori Z. Scott loves reading the Sunday comics and making up silly jokes.  I asked her to join us today to share her Thankful list.

Please welcome Lori Scott

Like many people, when it comes to things I’m thankful for, family, friends, and faith top the list. But God is good, even when it comes to the tiniest details of our lives! So...I decided to go beyond what people normally think and express my appreciation for some of the simple things in my life (and maybe yours too!) that bless me.

Here are my top ten picks:

  1. Ponytail Holders. Not only are they a snap for pulling up your hair, you can use them to close bags or wrap a deck of cards. You can also wear them as bracelets, or jimmy-rig one to hold a guinea pig’s water bottle.
  2. Stuffed Animals. They can make any kid, any age, smile. They make great GET WELL SOON gifts. And they are so cute, people will blow twenty dollars worth of quarters in a claw crane just to win one.
  3. A Loose Tooth. Ask any kid… what could be more gruesomely awesome?
  4. Silly Jokes. Anyone can make them and share them, and no one complains if they aren’t very good. Peanut butter sandwiches are like that too.
  5. Stubbornness. When facing life’s trials, stubbornness can be a life saver. And I am NOT changing my mind about whether or not it should be on the list.
  6. Dr. Seuss. He made up nonsense words like zizzer-zazzer-zuzz and diffendoofer. That’s just the studipusacious kind of fun I enjoy!
  7. Cup Holders. These are one of the best additions to modern cars. Even when not holding a drink, they can hold loose change, gum wrappers, earrings, ponytail holders (see number 1 above), and teeth (see number 3 above).
  8. Warm Blankets Straight From the Dryer. Ahhhhhhhhhhh…. need I say more?
  9. Plastic Spoons. I can’t tell you how many times I think, “Gee, if I only had a plastic spoon …” Try eating fruit cups or yogurt without them. And while a ponytail holder is handy, they don’t launch paper wads quite the same way.
  10. Doodles. Like me, many people depend on doodling to make it through a particularly boring lesson, staff meeting, or phone conversation. There are even people who make a career out of doodling. For some, that’s called graphic/ mechanical/ interior/ fashion designing. Others just call it physics.

Have a studipusacious Thanksgiving!

  1. Your books look wonderful and I love the artwork!

    I have to say that my teens have sketch books in the pews at church. Yep. A little unorthodox, but we have found they really pay attention better when their hands are occupied. One year we gave them sketch books for our weekly devotionals and it was amazing how the Word spoke to them and the sketches they drew to reflect that. AMAZING!!!!

  2. Sherrinda, my dad and I spent many years doodling illustrations for sermons! (I still do!) And like you, the sketches reflect what I'm hearing. :)

  3. I haven't been on here in awhile but it is so cool! I have always wanted to meet an author!
