Yes!  And stay tuned as I should have a blog this week as well.  

While I'm tooting my own horn, I did a blog during PBS 8th anniversary week; I was one of 8 people invited to write about books that meant a lot to me.  But I'm getting old (55) and my memory is faulty, or time slips in strange ways.

Anyway, I will award 1 credit to the person who can find the horrible gaffe in my Anniversary blog!  blush

Vicky -- Are you referring to reading Irving Stone's The Greek Treasure before it was published? I just figured you were ahead of your time!!

ETA: By the way, I loved your post.

DEB WINS!!  LOL...yes, I could have SWORN I read that the year I was dying to become an archaeologist.  I must have read a different book about Schliemann, and then revisited the whole thing later.

You get the credit, m'dear.

Thanks, Vicky -- that was very kind but I'm sure you won't mind if I donate that credit to Books for Schools when that campaign comes around.

Old - shmold - you are just a baby! Wish I could be 55 again - it was a good time and I didn't have doctor's visits every freakin month!

The post was great and isn't Deb just a sweetheart????

Thanks Vicky - I could almost wish......I just had the annual mammo and it's normal and then I had my bone density scan and it's normal - hallelujah! My last labs were all great; eyes are healthy; teeth good (see? all those appointments!) - but the WRINKLES!!!!! Where are they all coming from????? Egads, all I have to do is look in the mirror and it's a scary sight, I tell ya. I remember 10 years ago when my granddaughter was 4, she asked me to please not get old and I've been trying - for all the good it does.......
