Good morning, afternoon or evening to where ever you are in this wonderful world of ours. And welcome to our little piece of the world Free Books & Chat .Sorry but about all I have to offer this morning are some donuts, but they can be any kind you want. Maybe fresh hot off the line Krispe Kreme. We have a shop a couple miles away and there's nothing like being there and getting them warm right off of the line. And whatever drink you need for this time of day. Milk, coffee, tea or alcoholic. Not a coffee drinker so my first drink of the morning is an ice cold Coke. It's my one and only of the day though. Will be in and out all day with a couple drs appts so you all keep the ball rolling.

Here's the link to yesterdays thread:

Okay, I really did do some checking to see what kind of trivial something I could come up with for the day. But I had 3 sites tell me that April 11 is the most boring day in history.
But since Charlie-bird posted her picture of her new tattoo. I thought ok, this could be interesting. So who has tats, how many, do they symbolize something. Or do you absolutely hate them. Do you prefer them on men or women? Kind of excited to see who pops up with what.

Thanks Bubba K!

There is nothing in the world like a warm Krispy Kreme right off the line! They took our store away recently and put in another telecomm we need another one of those?!

A warm K.K. And fresh coffee ( Good coffee)... You made my day! : )

Morning back at you all.
Kathy- You ready for the day? My nerves are already shot for the morning. Lol! You are probably in better shape than I am. Will be thinking about you today.

Hi Kathy,

Are you just waiting or have they started preliminary stuff? All will go well...everyone is sending hugs your way!

Suze- A warm KK is awesome. I don't do very many sweets, but that is one I'll take any day. GS loves them so when he comes for his weekend we usually go and get some. When he was little and he would have stood at the window watching them make them for hours, a worker would always pull one out right after the icing part and bring it out to him. Last couple of times they haven't done that and he was like, whats the deal. Why don't they bring one out nymore? Told him Maybe it was cuter with a 3 yr old face pressed up against glass and not a 10 yr old. Because my face pressed against glass never got me one. He just laughed and said, Probably so. Maybe we should bring Little Miss and see what happens. I said, No, we would be like with you and never get her out of here!

"It's Not My Mountain Anymore"
The name "Appalachia" means, "People of the Other Side." It's befittin'. We remain separated from urban America by rugged mountain ranges, unique folklore, damnable stereotypes and fierce independence. I wrote "It's Not My Mountain Anymore" to share a vanished lifestyle that I once knew and loved as a child reared in a humble mountain home within a loving farm family. Chiefly, I wrote it to place in the hands of our grandson, that he might have an account of the things that really matter, like faith, family, community and friends. The mountains I once knew are not the same. Inevitable changes both to the landscape and its inhabitants clash harshly with cherished memories of a passing era.

BubbaK, my thoughts have been with you... and now you have also generously started so that all we lurkers, chatters and posters can enjoy another day of the special blend of care, compassion, sympathy and smiles that epitomises this daily thread and its wonderful population. While there are a lot of things in this life I'm lucky enough to be capable of, the thought of starting leaves me in admiration of those who manage not just to do it, with or without the "fancy" bits (but always with some little tidbit, I notice!), but to struggle with the various idiosyncrasies that present a problem like not being able to paste as desired, and come out in triumph yet again. Bravi all you starters, linkers and cross-posters, you are all just wonderful and I salute and thank you. It's never taken for granted.

I need to be brief-ish, so please forgive me as I'm about to leave out so many people (and it doesn't mean you're not thought of either) but right now I want to send a special hug to BJ and I will write separately (am going to do that email now, LOB).

To Sandy and Robb (and entourage), you always manage to spice up the thread with some of your life's activities!

To NC Kathy the biggest and most heartfelt hello to say I'll be thinking of you for your big day coming up as well - I hope it is just a boring, routine, standard and smooth-as-silk procedure so that you can relax and enjoy both RL and FB&C Life for the next while.

Northern Lights, now plain or otherwise (how could the NL ever be less than special, though?), I miss hearing you chime in - couldn't you please stop in here more often (true, I can't really talk myself!) and I hope your little lad has a good experience - he is going to be so excited to be joining his big brother as he steps up into the world of school and beyond. I bet now you're thinking how you want to enjoy the time with the littlest munchkin while it lasts! LOL

And redandwhite, always nice to see you. You said things so well earlier. I was tempted to write over on that page and just ask if I could borrow your post and add a "ditto". Hehe. But I wanted to say this myself as well.

And a hearty hello to Sunshine Suze and Dianna, the other early birds to join today so far over here (there have probably been more while I've been waffling on here)...

Terry and everyone who's joining it, I do hope you have a fabulous book discussion later - I might check in and see what the buzz is :)

Courtney - wonder where you are, how you are. Hope things are looking up soon, or better still already.

Elizabeth, you seem to be very busy sprinkling your magic fairy dust here and there, and I hope you saw my own thanks the other day - I have yet to go and accept those two wonderful gifts, but thank you once again.

Marla, hope you survived all the driving and enjoyed your family visit over Easter.

Meanwhile what is there that one could possibly say about Wendy-LOB and Vickie-Zoo? I know to expect big things just as a matter of course, but in this instance I'm fairly speechless. What a dynamic duo, individually you are already pretty special but in combination you are like a force of nature. So I don't know all that must have gone on behind the scenes to achieve that, and you didn't have to, but to hear about the flowers you sent not just for yourselves as you might well have done but on behalf of us all (!), and then to have such a brilliant report of the flowers' arrival, and to "hear" the conversation with BJ - I could just imagine it all, and how much warmer and brighter her home and heart must have been in the hours following, and no doubt still.

Ok - that's all for now, I have to write to BJ before it's too late!! I want to be "in", it will give her such a surprise to be bombarded with messages of love, friendship and goodwill. I can envisage that nephew of hers sitting and reading them for hours :D

Take care, all

The Mortician's Wife
Five miles from the new age Mt. Shasta City, the sleepy Northern California town of Dunsmuir plays host to a nightmarish house - the Old Mortuary - where the mortician's wife spent four decades alone, and some say insane, sleeping in an alcove off one bedroom where she believed the evil spirits of the house could not get to her, harboring terrible secrets.

With the steady flow of dead bodies through the basement and the murderous events upstairs, this is the story of how the Old Mortuary of Dunsmuir became one of the most haunted houses in America as a result of the personality and misdeeds of one man, Horace Carpenter, whose eternal soul most certainly does not rest in peace, as many will attest, and probably never will.

The sequel, 'The Mortician Returns', will be released in 2013.

"I have spent the night in supposedly some of the most haunted buildings in America. I have met people who could fairly be described as evil incarnate. I have been to the Old Mortuary in Dunsmuir. It is gorgeous but I wouldn't spend a single night there." Kathleen McKenna, author of horror novels 'The Wedding Gift' and 'Family Matters'

My thoughts and prayers are with you always.

Biscay- Good morning. Well, not for you, but you know. And I will use your DITTO. Because you did say it all so nicely and echo the thoughts of many of us on here.

Ok, I knew as soon as I posted there would be a list of people who were just popping in as I was typing...

Hi to book fan and NC Red Rose and Susan. Susan - I know some of us are a bit quiet in posting often - and I saw that you are apparently quite shy in RL, but you do keep the thread really humming along some days - thank you!

Thank you, BubbaK. I loved hearing about the doughnut shop - (took me a while to work out KK as I got stuck on Kindle Keyboard, that was confusing for a minute but then my mind went back to your opening :)

Luckily here they are too expensive and the miser in me won't let me buy them which is probably just as well. Those glazed ones are a little bit reminiscent of a childhood (school tuckshop in fact) treat - (glazed, although I don't think we ever knew what that meant, and I don't remember any other similar sort) pineapple doughnuts. They were a very particular thing, quite different to other types (and probably about half the size of a KK) and every now and again something will trigger the thought of them, but I haven't seen them for years or possibly decades. Again, just as well.

And yes, you must take Little Miss there! How could you not :)

Okay- Have to run and get ready for first dr. Will check in when I get home. Next appt isn't until later in afternoon. Thunderstorms are rolling out so at least don't have to deal with that while running. Everybody have a great day!

Thunderstorms. Not a concept we in the PNW, at least on the west side of the mountains, understand.
Thunderstorm. Yes. Thunderstorms. No.

Morning Susan. How is the caffeine going? Or is that, flowing?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 11, 2013 6:19:16 AM PDT
Susan says:
You mean flowing like an IV drip? Actually in slow motion and still on my first cup :)
