Shhh! Men are in hot pursuit, old folks are screaming, and Mary Lou can't find her article on cat grooming..oh, hi, everybody!

I thought it might be a good idea to share what's on the nightstands at the rectory. I found the following:

In Jack's room is American Brutus by Michael W. Kauffman. Being a former history teacher, Jack always grabs the historical stuff. The book is about John Wilkes Booth, Abraham Lincoln's assassin.

In Will's room the old folks are screaming..well, not really. He's reading 61 Hours, a Lee Child thriller featuring hero Jack Reacher. I love to cuddle and feel Will tense up when Jack gets the bad guys along with a strong cup of coffee and fifteen sugars.

In Mary Lou's space, there's just about anything to read. She has a bunch of stuff lying around all the time, so it's hard to say what's she's reading.

Wait a minute...what the heck?!..I'm reading a book, too? Who put this next to me when I was minding my own business, sleeping??..Huh?...Jaaaaack...!

Well, to all the readers here at the rectory and out in cyberland, have fun, don't read anything I wouldn't read and always keep one eye open when you snooze so somebody doesn't pull a fast one!

M loves Jack REacher stories, and so do I when she reads them to me.

Books can get you in a whole lot of trouble Tom. Especially when you are into the good stuff and in particular the one your Bean is reading at the time. You just don't want to curl up with said book. That usually brings on a tirade, or at least an undignified 'dump' on the hard, uncomfortable table.

Just sayin .....

I won't let TW read. I demand attention 24/7. She had to do a lot of computer reading for my newest blog though.
