The book was in the mail!

EPIGRAMS - I HAVE NOT WRIT ONE.
BUT IF I HAD, I'M SURE IT'D BE FUN.
THANKS TO KATHRYN I'M ALL INSPIRED!
AND OF THESE POEMS, YOU'LL SOON GROW TIRED!

I got my book from Mindy's Book Swap in the mail this weekend. Can I just say, I am thrilled! Thrilled, I tell ya! Kathryn of Good In Parts sent me The Faber Bood of Epigrams and Epitaphs. How totally appropriate is that?

Don't you love to get stuff in the mail? Between Amazon, Ebay, Gorey Details, and Mindy's swaps, I am a confirmed mail order disciple. Did I mention the Gorey Details? A lot of my family read this blog and they might need to know about Gorey Details for all their gift-giving needs. Yessirreebob! Find everything that someone could possibly want at Gorey Details!

Back to the book! Kathryn also included a post card of the rose window at her church. It is incredible! (Sorry FUMC ladies - their rose window puts yours to shame.) I looked up the website for the church - its like something out of a story book. If I ever manage to swim the Atlantic, I am heading straight for her county. Thanks again, Kathryn - this book is going to provide me tons and tons of enjoyment!

Has anyone else noticed that Blogger's spell checker does not recognize the word blog? What the hell!?!

yes, I did also notice that!! Blog isn't in Blogger... one day - we should all write posts and then let blogger spellcheck have it's way. Then post it just like that. could be some fun there.

yay for books.

Sadly, the book didn't include one of my very favourite epitaphs
"Erected in memory of John McNabb
Drowned in the waters of Leith
By a few affectionate friends".

With friends like that....:-)

OK, on the second read I noticed the comment about spell check.

Blogger has spell check? Really?
