      Bluebird of Bitterness gets all the credit. πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

    I see this right after getting a smartphone that’s not cheapo and actually works right, putting me at risk of getting sucked in…. πŸ™‚

        Today I was happy just because the Bluetooth connected to my laptop on the first try…. And my apps are stable and I can read news articles without trouble! And use WordPress! πŸ™‚

          People bemoan the way everyone is looking at their cell phones constantly, but a generation or two ago husbands/fathers would be hidden behind the newspaper at the breakfast table. They still read the news at breakfast, but at least we can see their faces now. πŸ˜‰

    I’m way, way behind in reading your posts, so I’m glad I stopped by today, Linda Lee. I needed something funny! The Mobius strip steak cartoon made me laugh out loud. πŸ˜€

    Happy Thanksgiving!

      Awesome! And here’s a weird coincidence: around the time that you left this comment, I was writing my review for your terrific memoir! I don’t know how long it will take them to approve and post it.

      Here is the review I left for Mennonite Daughter:

      This book surprised me. I thought I was getting a story about a different time, a different place, and a very different way of life. In other words, I expected to be entertained and enlightened. But I did not expect to relate to this story, because I have never been involved with the Mennonite community.

      Surprise! As a grown woman who once was a little girl at the mercy of adults who seemed to have no mercy, there is so much in this story that resonates with my lived experience.

      I did a lot of highlighting throughout this fascinating memoir. Here is one of my favorites:

      “How futile it is to try to figure out the motivations of other human beings, our parents, especially. We are all more complicated than the characters in the stories we remember about those we love.” Yes! So true.

      During the first two or three chapters, I liked this book. Then, the further I read, the more I fell in love with Mennonite Daughter. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more, and I came away feeling like I have found a friend.

      Highly recommended!

      Happy Thanksgiving, Marian. I need to figure out how to get back into my Goodreads account. Then I will leave my review there, as well.

      We will have our Thanksgiving celebration on Saturday, because the weather here in our part of New Mexico has made driving too dangerous. I don’t remember ever having to postpone Thanksgiving due to weather before. But the snow and ice look beautiful, and our two dogs love playing in it. While wearing their little dog coats, of course. 😁
