One response to this post.

  1. I always appreciate your book suggestions. In fact after your Halloween suggestion, I ordered three of the Frankenstein books.

    Thanks, also, for all the advice about the slippers. I’m thinking on it. At this time of year, I’m watching the pennies pretty tightly.

    But, I did order the Dave Barry book for a penny or something like that and have it now.
