word of the day

[at a grocery store, heading into the women’s room]

josephine: so that’s the men’s room and this is the women’s room?

me: that’s right.

josephine: what happens if you go into the wrong bathroom? is there an unrewardable thing someone has to do if they go in the wrong one?

    Oma, if you were to read one more novel in your life, make it The Temporary Gentleman by Sebastian Barry. Style and story–absolutely magnificent. And I can recommend all of his five other published novels, especially A Long Long Way. I trust you and yours are doing well. Love from both of us on the farm. Larry.

    keep the recommendations coming! i just finished _vacationland_ and loved it. it reminded me of _driftless_, which you also recommended and is one of my favorites. i’m grateful you do so much reading for me. 🙂 i’m putting the temporary gentleman on my library list.
