Look at those tiny red noses! LOL


Clearly those two gorgeous children are the results of exceptional parenting, don't you think?

I always thought the Presbyterian Church was a castle as a young child, too. I think I told you I thought the king of Howell lived there. I still often refer to it as "the castle church." I did have lots of religious instruction as a small child. Of course it was Baptist instruction, so nobody else mattered and they were all going to hell!

Speaking of religion, there was a lot of it in that parade. L commented that he wasn't sure if the reindeer were going to be pulling Santa or the Baby Jesus.

It was great to see you, I wish we could have hung out more. It was such a stressful long weekend, hopping here and there all the time and trying to keep the 2 year old out of everything. If one is looking forward to having one's two year old grandson visit, could one not take a few minutes to put the frou-frou, knick-knacks and assorted breakables out of his freaking way so I'm not constantly chasing after him getting this out of the way or out of his hands and diverting his attention constantly?! Would that really be so tough? I promise I won't call House Beautiful and tell them that the house doesn't look like a museum for a day.

Sorry, venting. But it was great to see you! I wish the other Broads could have made it, too.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road

  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
