So it's been a month, eh? Whoops. To say that time has been running away with me lately would be understating things. Part of that is actually due to this fellow right here: Yep. Those of you who read the acknowledgements in Light know that there was a promise there to my husband. The Cat-Dog...

Who wants to take the time to read books if you are in one of these stunning libraries. I wonder how long it would take, if you became a regular patron, to concentrate on words for any length of time. "Shh - people gawking." [DE] * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Admont Library Where: Admont,...
