5.0 out of 5 stars Cute -- just like daddy's, February 14, 2015
Bought this for a new grandbaby, so it'll be awhile before we know anything about the fit. The fabric is smooth and almost shiny -- I'm thinking spills will blot away. It's a bit stretchy too, which (for me anyway) means extra comfort. The seams are double-sewn and the zipper is sturdy and works smoothly. It has the orange "netting" in the hood, and two pockets big enough for whatever toddlers carry. Binkies? Cell phones? Who knows these days. The jacket is almost as cute as the grandbaby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice not to have to fool with cartridges or ink bottles, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There's something about writing with a fountain pen that improves legibility. It might be because I write more slowly with a fountain pen, even one that writes as smoothly as this one. I like ballpoints and rollers too, but the points on those pens don't provide any traction. The point on these is rough enough to slow me down, but not so rough that I can't write fast if I need to.

I have one of these pens (before I bought the whole box) and it's lasted for months.

Gold Toe Women's 6-Pair Ribbed Crew Sock, Blue Night/Silver/Lagoon/Chestnut/Emerald/Midnight, 9-11

1.0 out of 5 stars One sock is falling apart, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Update: Another sock has holes on the bottom -- not on the heel, where holes usually happen first, but on the ball of the foot.

I cannot recommend these socks.

I bought these socks about three months ago, and have worn and washed each pair several times. The socks are soft and comfy and fit well, but one sock has completely failed. There's a hole in the heel and several holes along the entire bottom. The other sock of that pair is fine, and so are the other socks.

Weird.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty calendar, with reinforcement of the hole, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The artwork is lovely, bright and detailed. What I like best about this calendar is the brass (?) reinforcement of the hanging hole. I've had too many calendars where the hole was torn by March and I had to tape the darn thing.


Ritz Kitchen Wears Egyptian Cotton Collection 2-Piece Checked Towel Set, Butter
Ritz Kitchen Wears Egyptian Cotton Collection 2-Piece Checked Towel Set, Butter
Price: $12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Thick (but not too thick) and soft, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The towels are soft and absorbent with a well-sewn hem. It might be my imagination, but I think they're a bit softer than other towels I have that aren't Egyptian cotton. The weave is tighter than ordinary terry cloth towels. I think they'll hold up well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice kitchen towel, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not too thick, soft and absorbent, and the hemming holds up. That's all I ask from a kitchen towel.

5.0 out of 5 stars So soft!, February 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are wonderfully soft, and as absorbent as they need to be for drying hands or dishes. The water here is really hard but the towels are still soft, after several washings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made my daughter homesick, December 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter, who grew up in Seattle and misses it dearly (probably because she never had to drive while she lived there). The paper is a nice weight -- not flimsy -- which is good, since she said she intends to frame some of the art. It's also good because the months can be flipped without worrying about tearing the holes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Curtain isn't the same color as the photo -- not even close, December 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love the color green shown in the photo. Unfortunately, the shower curtain is NOT that nice light sage green -- it's lime green, or maybe chartreuse. Whatever -- it's not the same as the photo.


True Story of Ida Johnson
True Story of Ida Johnson
by Sharon Riis
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the more interesting female characters I've encountered, September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A truck driver in Alberta, Canada picks up a hitch-hiker and drops him off in a small town diner. At the diner, the hitch-hiker strikes up a conversation with Ida, a waitress. He asks Ida to tell him her life story. It's the end of her shift, Ida has nothing better to do, so after he agrees to pay for her time (twenty bucks), Ida starts to talk.

This is a very short book -- all the better for re-reading, which I think was the author's intention. The hitch-hiker might not be what he seems, and maybe Ida isn't either.

Ida gives us the highlights and lowlights of her life -- an ordinary childhood in a charmless but harmless family. The only real highlight is Ida's friendship with the younger Lucy, a Native American from "the Reserve". Their personalities are very different. Ida is content to let life happen to her, almost like a dumb animal, which Lucy doesn't understand. Lucy leaves town very early, while Ida hangs around, lets herself get pregnant and marries a young man who she never bothers to get to know. Tragedy follows and Ida commences to wandering.

It's difficult to explain why I liked this book so much. Might be the honesty, might be admiration for what Riis has done in creating Ida, on the surface an ordinary, unlikable and not very interesting character. But in the end, she's almost Sphinx-like, maybe even a creation of the reader. She can be viewed in different ways, depending on the reader's own personal experience. I liked her, but I don't think I'd want her for a friend.

This was an amazing book and definitely meant for more than one reading.
