ON THE BACK BURNER

June 25

I am so excited. I have a $51. credit at Amazon . I had heard on TV that there was a class action ruling that people who purchase books electronically will be rewarded a settlement. Just watch for it. Well, I got rich over night and I only had to read my email. Now I feel like a horder. I don't want to spend it . I went to my Amazon account and looked at books. Every book That I thought about made me say to myself, "no, I'll save my credit for something I really want." This may go on for a while. I can't just frivolously use this found money. I need to look at whatever I purchase and be proud of what it is.I want to be able to say,"I bought this with my refund." I can't understand why I am being cautious with this found money. I will buy books either way.But this windfall make's it seem somehow special and different. Now , too, I wonder if I can say that I never win anything, like the lottery. Is this in the same vein, or is it different because it's really money that I spent already. Maybe this is double dipping. Maybe I should just order another cook book.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
