Another Drive By

Tried commenting (4 separate times!) on Karen's passport post from a couple of days ago, but damn Blogger wouldn't let me. So I'll try that here tomorrow. Bought 3 books at the library sale; 2 older Anne McCaffrey & 1 YA Elizabethan mystery. Nearly adopted an adorable Cairn terrier pup, but came (returned?) to my senses in the nick of time. Uh what else? Reading Lois McMaster Bujold's The Hallowed Hunt and The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. The last one? Terrifying.

FIL update- still in ICU. Not improving, barely- barely holding his own. Thanks to all for your good thoughts prayers & kind words. They've helped tremendously.

What's the YA Elizebethan mystery??

Will continue to keep your FIL in my prayers. Keep us updated.

How is your husband doing with it?

Oh, Amanda, am so sorry to hear about your FIL. Will keep him in my prayers.

Hope you and hubby coping fine. Take care both.

The series is called The Lady Grace Mysteries, the book is titled Assassin & is written by Patricia Finney.

Thank you both for your good wishes & prayers. Every positive thought helps.

I'm sorry to hear about your F-I-L.

The Omnivore's Dilemma is quite disturbing, isn't it? After reading it, I started looking at all of the labels and notice how omnipresent high fructose corn syrup is in stuff. :sigh:

I had trouble with blogger a couple of days ago, where I couldn't even load my page, but I think it's ok now.

Sorry to hear about your F.I.L.
