Five months into my quest to see how many books on average I read in a year, I stumbled across this beauty of a book. Cheryl writes in her mother, Audrey Purkeypile's voice about the resilience needed to grow up in Alaska. Especially in the 1920's to the 1940's. Audrey's family is committed to helping all people and everything they ever did was for someone else with never a single complaint.
Biography, would read again

translated from the Spanish of Julio Herrera y Reissig
Supper is over – vegetables, brown bread
and grapes still resplendent with virgin dew.
Supper has been supped, prayers have been prayed,
the old man has finished an amenable anecdote,
and the group puts on their party clothes
with goatish pleasure.
Lydia runs in circles around the room.
Lux sings. Palemon walks on stilts.
Everyone is… Continue

If I have one weakness when it comes to mysteries, it's the fact that I love English Detectives. I think it started with Lord Peter Whimsey on Masterpiece theatre when I was younger. It lead me to the books, then went on from there, Albert Campion, Inspector Roderick Allyn, Sherlock Holmes, Morse, now Lewis, Inspector DAgliesh, Jane Tennyson I could go on and on.
So it was only natural I pick up P.D.James Talking about Detective Fiction. It is a wonderful book easy to read and full of… Continue

The rabbit died!
No, no one is pregnant. The rabbit, our pet rabbit, literally died. Now for the most difficult thing to admit; it was my fault.
My wife went out of town for a few days and said, “Look after Stinky (the rabbit), would you?”
Of course I said that I would, no problem, consider it done, go have a good time.
I didn’t feed or water Stinky for three days. I refuse to offer more details than that, other than to say that his name fit the end result. I feel… Continue
