Saturday Good Reads


How do you say goodbye to a dying grandmother? Can you find redemption in a corn field? What do you do when you’re awakened in the middle of the night by a bat in your room? What images come to mind when you think of going to a county fair? Or maybe you just like to hang out with dragonflies. It was all online last week, and a whole lot more, too.

Thanks Glynn -- wish it really was a painfree Saturday -- new drugs, new ideas on how to deal with the pain 'cause the root canal didn't take it away!

Hugs. Thanks for the mention.

Thanx Glynn!

Thank you for highlighting my sonnet. I'm hoping to see you try your hand at the Glass Slipper.

Have a great weekend.

So honored to be on your Good Reads list, Glynn! I'm giving away books at the moment...a big box heading out the door in order to "posses less." :)

Hi Glynn- I made it on the list twice! I'm the king of all I survey! I'm top of the world, ma!
