Many Thanks


I'm so grateful for all the book suggestions. They will keep me busy for awhile. I headed to my local county library, armed with a very long list, signed up for a card and then was stunned, STUNNED, when they didn't have any of the books I wanted. This just does not happen when I go to Barnes and Noble. Did I mention it was a very long list, with many choices. I jumped in my car and was headed to the nearest B&N, when a recent conversation with my husband popped into my head. It went something like this...

Bear
You buy too many books. You should get a library card.

Me
Okay (said guiltily, as I glance at the piles of books stacked on the floor of our tiny one bedroom apartment)
*
Bear
No really, you should.
*
Me
I SAID I WILL!!!

Short story shorter, I did the responsible thing. I went home and requested the books on the library website. Now it will be like Christmas when I am notified of their arrival... well if you had to give all your Christmas presents back after you played with them once.

The good news is, the suggestion to read Gone With the Wind reminded me that I happen to own a copy. Right after I bought it, a peg on my TV stand came off and it happened to be the perfect size to stabilize it. I was bummed, because I had started reading the first couple of chapters and was already madly in love with it, but it was an emergency. Luckily, my Emily Post: Wedding Etiquette book is the same size. Sorry for this Emily... and for for breaking most of your rules at my wedding.

?? What wedding rules did you break?? Was it dancing on the table, or hubby wandering around with a bottle of Jack Daniel's? Those seem OK, perhaps it was the pre wedding when his Uncle was seen (and heard) about the area with a double gage shot gun.
The hay bale chairs??
Or was it that you MADE YOUR MOTHER WEAR SLACKS?!! I just am not sure of which rules may have been bent or broken according to Emily Post.

I could have made you wear a dress and it was Jim Beam not Jack Daniels... apparently there is a difference.

Is that your wedding picture? It is amazing if it is. It is amazing if it is not.

I did not know that you were such a rule breaker (according to Emily Post).
