ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb.9

I am sitting around waiting for a repair man. This means that I am missing something that I wanted to do. I am not using my time wisely. instead, I keep looking at the clock, which seems to be stuck. I am finishing  a book. That was positive. Especially since I wanted to return it to the lender. There is quite a responsibility when you are lent a book. You can’t dog ear the place where you stopped. You can’t put your coffee cup on top of the cover.You can’t use a blank space to write a note. I feel the same responsibility for a library book, but borrowing from a friend seems to be putting more pressure on me. Bob  used to put pieces of torn newspaper as a book marker. I have a drawer full of gifted book markers. They are a nice reminder of trips that friends took and remembered us .I still like dog ears for books that belong to me. To all librarians that I know, I promise to be respectful of public library books  and to return them in a timely manner.

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?
