I’ve discovered Audible. It’s like giving me the lolly jar without telling me how many I’m allowed. So far, I’ve devoured a total of 110 book hours, expanded my reading genre in wonderful, wonderful ways, and reconnected with my love of being read to. I’ve also been barred from listening to Audio at work… Continue reading Audible, The Boss and I
I have a list of Friday joys to share with you. 1. DJ’s fashionable vet collar came off today. After 11 days, nine hours, ten minutes and seven seconds of cone induced pain for both myself and the Buffhead, it is finally off. Angels sing: Hallelujah!!
