How do you get it that loud?

You just....

Any idea what they were talking about?

Finished: Caddie Woodlawn

Spunky chick who doesn't want to act like a lady. I look forward to reading this to daughter-dearie, and hope that she is eager to learn the lesson at the end - that now is a good time to grow up and be a lady.

Please, leave an anonymous (or not) comment. Do I need to change the color of my kitchen walls?

Finished: Dombey and Son

Another Charles Dickens...

This one took me longer to get through than the other ones, and it doesn't have one of the delights of Dickens, which is the twisted plot that brings all relationships together in the end.

Dombey and Son contains more of an in depth study on the hardness of a proud man and the steadyness of constant faithfulness.
