Away we go

All right. The last week was enough of a downer. Now it's time to pick up the mood a bit. It's gray and rainy outside, and that's absolutely wonderful! We, as most folk, are desperately in need of rain.

And, later this week, I'm off on holiday! Some time off, time away! Wish I could come visit friends in blog land, but I don't get to travel that far (unless some one in Memphis wants to host me for a night). I'm off to spend some time alone with myself to read and think and stuff. That may not sound like fun to many, but sounds great to me. I'll have to get some books to read, something fun. Any suggestions?

Then, I'm off to Memphis for a visit with my college daughter and see a play she's in. Then it will be back home, all the way across Tennessee and into NC.

I hope to rest and read and relax and have some fun. Cheers to all!

I would suggest just about anything by Tom Robbins or Lamb by Christopher Moore.

Touch base with me when you're in Memphis. Maybe we could have a beer, or some coffee or some damned good barbecue.

I still say Augusten Burroughs is the best laugh for the money... maybe "Dry"...

Have a great time.

Anything by David Sedaris. Flannery O'Conner is fun, especially if you're hanging out with southerners. One of my personal favorites is A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole...what a cast of characters! Hilarious!

I agree with Troll - Dry is excellent, also liked the new Armistead Maupin - Michael Tolliver lives. Have a restful time.

"A Spot of Bother" was a fun read... Mark Haddon

I too had planned to get away after my break-up... a place up near you I guess, tree houses and such near a beautiful stream... I chickened out but wish I'd done it...
