Going Out Tonight...

... to the Oxford Valley Mall for my husband's first-ever book signing. Bless his heart, he's been rehearsing in the garage!

Tomorrow or the next, I'm going to write a few posts about my experiences with the characters in Like Any Normal Day. I've met some of them, and they really are wonderful people. The mark of a good person is when life tests you to the max, and you stare it in the eye and don't blink. The Miley family has more non-blinkers than I've ever met in one household.

The previous post was visited, quite unexpectedly, by my one-and-only troll. I've flung the gauntlet at supporters of Cindy Jacobs, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, DC40, the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, and the Westboro Baptist Church. Only once, long ago, did I get a tepid response from someone who approves the messages of these pustules. My troll seems to have no political allegiance, but he holds a damned good grudge.

This is my favorite bridge, Troll. Do not collect toll at this bridge. The ghosts will kick your butt.

This is my second favorite bridge. Knock yourself out.

For the curious: The first bridge (yes, Iggy) is Burnside Bridge on the edge of Antietam Battlefield. The second bridge is (yes, Iggy) the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, mid-span.



I am still beating the drum for it to be made into a movie.

I have asked my local library to purchase the top book on this list.

I thought I would share a few of the others I plan to read soon. A Bored God might like to comment on any of them, imho. (I have no economic interest in the books.) Sorry about that nasty little one that scampered through yesterday.

Mark Kram
Like Any Normal Day: A Story of Devotion

Newell G. Bringhurst and Craig L. Foster

Elizabeth Warren

Please feel free to delete this note if it does not delight you. I would actually like to see your take on LDS and their divinity and prophets. I commented here once a long time ago, leaving a prayer.

Blessings to you Ann, you drive a lot of people sane.

Not bored,
Green Man

Is that the bridge over Antietem Creek near Sharpsburg, MD?

The other bridge looks like the one at Kent Narrows, over the Chesapeake bay.

I'll have to find a copy of your hubby's book.

Lovely bridges! The second one looks like it echoes the Golden Gate Bridge. What are they called?
