I promised to blog yesterday, and then I didn’t. YIKES. What was I doing???
Well, I had a doctor’s visit to make, and I guess that just filled up my whole head. Nothing serious, so nobody worry. (Sally Jean and Mom, this means YOU.)
Of course, since I was already out and about for the doctor appointment, it only made sense to visit my new favorite store, Hobby Lobby. Mary Ann and I made a quick pass, and then it was on to another favorite store, Barnes and Noble, out in Spokane Valley. I wanted Tony Blair’s new book, “A Journey”. So far, I haven’t had time to read anything but the introduction–I got right in at the doctor’s office, so no time for waiting-room reading–but I must tell you, I LOVE what the former Prime Minister of England says about America and Americans–it’s so eloquent, so honest and so insightful that I plan to go back and highlight the paragraphs so I can find them again. Between bouts of writing, I will be reading this book over the holiday weekend, for sure.
I do love history, and I’m fascinated by key players such as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, FDR, and Churchill. All these people were truly great, and all of them had many human flaws.
I find that comforting.
Have a great time this weekend, and stay safe.
