Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

~ April 20th

Printed Page with Marcia is the host of this fun meme.
I'm so behind and late getting this together. It's a good thing I didn't have much to write about. In fact I was feeling a bit unloved last week with no packages coming in the mail even though I have deliberately cut back in an effort to catch up on reviews. On Saturday I was fortunate enough to get two books in the mail. Phew! It's a good thing it doesn't take much to make me happy.
