What are you reading now?

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

So you smoked it but didn't inhale it, eh?
Am I supposed to believe that? Seriously?

I could also have also DL'd it and slapped it on the laptops hard-disk, or I could have just inserted the key. But, I prefer the hard cover. You?

I better not see smudges on the pages.

It's a soft cover. tsk tsk.
You better start paying attention if you're going to research the book.

'At least with Bob, I know who is being used, and its not me' quoted from the other sordid book Bared to You, lol

But back to the main title of this post, another good read is Headmasters Wager and I recently read Wild, an excellent read, a true story.

K! It's a good plan. Makes perfect sense. Then I'll promote her to top flower girl and then.. wait it's fall. There will be no flowers. So I will buy a flower store for nothing and have to wait till next spring. K it's a plan. Gotta start somewhere..


And why is this type sooo tiny. I've heard the saying too much......makes you blind, but really I don't think it's just me that can't see this.

CC - use the zoom to ~ 200%. It works perfectly for the mini-print.

It's just you. See what these cheesy books do to you?
You should see what I can write on a grain of rice, when my palm hair is shaved.

I swear, Eeyore starts the strangest stuff.
