…the most beautiful mists on the mountains this morning, drifting low into the valleys. Unfortunately, the wonderful back road I navigate to work is so narrow that there is no spot wide enough to pull over for a photograph. But I insist on talking about it anyway, don’t I? Just picture with me dark green mountains and soft white drifting mists, with the glow of yellow morning sun just warming the tops of the clouds.
Yippee! Another book list from Nancy Pearl on Morning Edition at NPR ~ ”Carry-on Books to Take You Up, Up and Away” ~ in which to lose yourself on an airplane, but not lose your place in the story when the masks drop down and you have to ‘secure your mask first before securing those of children traveling with you’ ~ or when you go to pay the additional fee to get your bags back from the carrier….just kidding, haven’t heard about a pick up fee yet (hope the wrong people aren’t reading this). I might start with “Metzger’s Dog” and “Chester (Place my award here)”. Here’s a link to the gianormous complete list of 2008 summer book recommendations from six different reviewers – a great selection to browse.

It’s going to be a warm weekend in East Tennessee, so if you like the heat, I hope you get out and enjoy, and if you don’t, I wish you a well-running air conditioner. In either case, I believe a frosty cold milkshake should factor into your next two days somewhere!
