  • Its International Book Week!

    The rules: Grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence. Don't mention the title.

    Perhaps I'll do that this weekend and bank the check Christian gave me for Wanda, my Beetle.

            Gail - you're a sweetie but are assuming a level of literacy that membership on this probably rules out. I'm gonna go pull a motor...

                          I put the jegs down, found nearest book.

                          It seemed a little odd to be doing this, but it gave him an idea for
                          another painting and he grew even more pleased with himself.

                            3. Never use the word 'impossible' seriously again.
                            Toss it into the verbal wastebasket.
