But first a story.....you know me, always with a story!
I wanted to listen to my books on CD in the dining room wherer the longarm is located. The dining room is away from everything and everybody. Everybody, becasue the bassets are not allowed in there. Well, let me clarify, McGee is not allowed in there, DiNozzo behaves himself by looking out the window under the quilt frame while I quilt around him. McGee eats stuff.
(ASIDE: Sunday: McGee is lethargic today. Which makes him about as active as the normal dog. He has not wanted to eat more than a few bites of anything, his tummy is really wonky from the barium they made him take. His bodily functions are normal, so that is good, no more throwing everything up.
I save that dog's life daily. Hopefully by the time this posts he will be back to 100%)
I went to Best Buy to buy a CD Player and all the 20-somethings asked what that was! When I told them, they all pondered a bit and said they didn't think that anything like that was made anymore. Sigh. Frank found on in the Clock Radio area of the store, in a dark unused corner that was dusty and full of ghosts of the past...........all the 20-Somethings were amazed that it still existed.
On to my Book Recommendaiton.
The Street of a Thousand Blossoms by Gail Tsukiyama
I loved the Japanese names and terms scattered through this book. I wnated to say them all! I have a tendency to predict (correctly) the outcome of most books, but this one was a bit different than I thought. I loved all the characters, I could see the "movie" in my head as they performed the writer's words. And once again, it gave me some insight of historical events from a non-American point of view. I hated for this book to end.
I ordered it from the library and they sent it to the branch near me and I just picked it up and returned it at no charge. Perfect. She has written about 6 other novels but none are available at our library on CD.
