Morning, Sunday, June 5, and am dipping my fingers in blog waters. I hope to come here once a day, and, on rainy days, maybe more often. Will tell you mostly about the books I am reading, and, occasionally, may vent a little about absurdities, and/or tell you about a bird I saw, or a manatee, on my morning run. Friends, those of you who resisted blogging as I have until now, please reconsider. It's a platform, it's a promotional tool, and it's fun, too. I've said my word.
