In reply to Lindybird:
This was mine
Morning all: Re jigsaws, I can't imagine what inspired me to get Starry Night. I think I manage to place about 5 pieces each evening. Glad the storm wasn't too bad - I spoke to my niece in Newport Pagnell yesterday and some areas there were flooded.
PatO: I too learned to touch-type at a tender age and was interested to read that you can still do it (as I can) but wouldn't be able to 'place' the letters.. Same here. That must be what they call muscle memory, which our Tai Chi teacher is always banging on about (in the nicest possible way). I bet that if we had to imagine typing something, we could 'reconstruct' the keyboard on a piece of paper.
Lindybird: That's a nice compromise over the picture, with the added financial benefit. I suggest you take the difference and buy yourself a treat or three. Sure hope your cousin's family recovers quickly. I was reading some time back that blood type may have something to do with how the virus affects individuals, but haven't seen anything since. We're all consumed with speculating on what other damage The Great Orange Narcissist will inflict before he leaves office.
AQ: Hope the cool weather sticks around a bit. I've got five Michael Connelly books (detective mysteries set in LA) that I reserved and that all somehow arranged to arrive at the library on the same day. Then, having been 57 in a reserve line of about 130 for the new Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling's adult pen name) book, got a note that it was ready for pick up. Went to collect it and OMG - it's more than 900 pages! I hope it doesn't fall on me when I'm reading in bed - I see a bloody nose and black eyes. Won't need any fitness program after lugging that around the house.
And yes, toast is on the menu - at least this morning.
Quite by accident started reading Jeffrey Archer...'Nothing ventured ' and actually quite a nice interesting read. 1st of his series , William Warwick, as I read somewhere ",not a Detective story more a story about a Detective"
