I have my eye on that already! My wife says she will go down there tomorrow and snag it if she can, she use to be the kid's teacher so she may have some sway.

Just going to relax and head to bed soon.

Good night everyone.

Good morning MMC friends. Thanks for the support and kind words as I went through chick flick overload. Its a serious condition that inflicts millions of men each and every year, yet it seems to go unnoticed and misunderstood by many. Those of us who suffer with it know all too well the pain fellow brothers go through when the condition strikes them. So we will march on, silent no longer, keeping up the good fight.

I hope everyone has a great day and happy Friday, friends!

Good to hear from you! I hope things settle soon so you can go back home and relax.

We have that anthology! I read it some years ago. I don't remember the details except for one of the stories that had a shocking ending, but I remember that I enjoyed it. I must pull that book off the shelf for the Halloween season! We also have two anthologies of Christmas murder and mystery stories that I love to read in November. One of them only came out in paperback, and the poor book is getting so worn from being read! But there are stories in it that are "can't miss" every year.

I age year after year, but according to my mother, she does not, either. You and her have that in common.

Happy birthday to Jeannie! Hope it's a great one and I hope y'all have fun camping.

My fingers are crossed this morning. The office is supposed to close at 1 p.m., but that usually means that at 1 p.m. the ones who are leaving dump work on the studio that has to be done before the holiday, so a 1 p.m. closing often means 3 or 4 p.m. for us. And it's been a busy week. I SO would like to get out of here at 1 p.m., but I mustn't get my hopes up.

But once I'm out of here, I don't have to go back until Tuesday!

That's great! Now I'm really looking forward to it!! 🎃

Can you get me the titles of the Christmas anthologies? I would love to find them.

Amazon has been great for me lately, and we also have some used bookstores in town that I've found some out of print, uncommon, or eclectic reads.
