Many good books to read and not enough time in the day. 


  1. Someone once gave me a copy of Lutz' THE HONYOCKER in the 1969 Avon edition. Long time since I took it out of its plastic sleeve and opened it. Time I enjoyed it again. Good luck with that new stack you've got there. Whew!

  2. I envy you some of the L'Amours. Sort of wish I could read them the first time again.

  3. Ron, I'll be looking for a review of The Honyocker.

    Charles, I picked 'em up at an antique store. There were more of 'em, but only so much money to spend.

  4. HUGS Oscar!

    Just dropping by to let you know I'm back in blogsville and will be dropping in to see what's up ...I've miss you and your post.

    Hugs Hawk

  5. It's about time, Hawk, welcome back!
