This week plans to be another rainy one so I am catching up on my summer book pile. It is rather large but the weather has helped me to whittle it down. Here is a list of a few books I've read thus far this summer:
Perfection by Julie Metz - Good memoir. A must-read for anyone who is interested in the vagarities of marriage.
City of Thieves by David Benioff- Nice poolside book....if you're into WWII fables.....which I am!
Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl - Have read this 5 times now so decided to read it to the kids. Sad and beautiful. Opened up a world of questions for them. They lurved it. Maybe they`ll read it four more times to catch up!
A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick - Awful. Over-written. Finished it, though.
Next up: The Book of Negroes. Get reading!

As many of you may or may not know, among my husband Tim's many talents is a finesse with a camera. He takes it everywhere with him and snaps pics when the spirit moves him. Most of the pictures you see on this site, in fact, are his. Nice, huh? Cheap, too.

It's a rainy day and I'm looking for ways to get cheered up, so I headed over to one of my favorite sites, Old Jews Telling Jokes (http://oldjewstellingjokes.com) Too. Damn. Funny.
One of my favorite jokes on the site is a cat joke. Now, normally I steer clear of pet jokes but this one made me chuckle a wee bit:
I know a woman who sleeps with cats.
Now ask me who it is.
(the person asks, Who is it?)
and sometimes Mrs. Nussbaum
Pay this site a visit. It's worth the trip.
