THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: "I"

Many years ago, I volunteered at our local elementary school library, and that meant book fairs and reading groups. Since my boys loved to be read to it was easy, The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks, we must have read the whole series 5 times. All that knowledge about Lynn Reid Banks got both my boys into a "who wants to be a millionaire" type challenge, who knew? When I think of those days, I remember being really tired, Not unlike now, and hurrying them off to read so we could get them to bed and I could crash. If you know my Daniel you know there is no such thing as hurrying Daniel off to anything, it would often take me 3 or 4 hours to get him to sleep. Yes 3 or 4 hours. On many occasion I was asleep before he was. Any way. This weeks letter is "I" if you haven't read this little book do.. and read it with someone you love preferably who still thinks your the smartest,most beautiful women around and who will snuggle up and listen in awe.
