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

Mailbox Monday (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at Burton Book Review this month and is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy,toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
I was lucky enough to spend some time with my nephews for a few days last week. I stayed with them while their parents went away for an anniversary trip. I didn't get much reading done but I got to skip stones, look for fish, shoot baskets, eat popcicles on the porch, go to the pool and go to dinner with two handsome young men. What more could I ask for?

I did get some goodies recently so I had to join in for Mailbox Monday even if I'm late. I hope you had some pleasant surprises as well!
