Jon Kennedy's 'Postcards from
the Nanty Glo in My Mind'

Reduced load

I've started a project that is the most exciting development in quite a while. Though I've been given a verbal go-ahead to get working on it, the contract is "in the mail," so I'm deferring until the actual signing to be more specific. But this much I'll share now: I've committed to write some 20,000 words during my off time from my regular job by the end of this month. So in light of this I'm looking at ways to reduce the load for the Home Page Postcards department and anything else I can adjust. I have quite a few photos taken during my visit to Home Page Country last month and will use some of these to help reduce the time I need to turn out Jonals. The first of these:


Is that cool, or what? The teams in "the day" didn't have anything this flattering or ego boosting as this. Though all I know is what I see, I'm assuming the Pride of the Valley, shown here at a full-size highway billboard at the foot of Pergrim Hill, is the 2005 Vikings Football Team. Any additional information you can provide for your Home Page, like the names of the young men pictured, would be greatly appreciated and added to the photo if received. Meanwhile, click the photo for a much enlarged version in which each face is clearly visible.
