"Sit here for the present."

This post will have subtitles.

Guess the title reference game
(Cf. CSP) Post title will be obvious to my mother and possibly familiar to those with school-age children.

It’s hot.

Discovered the (very small, at least in Alderman) ethnobotany section. Hours lost. Contend that 19thC-early20thC travelogues as from sea expeditions are The Prettiest Books.

The Prize
I think I may have glimpsed it, at least temporarily. More on this later.

    Beverley Cleary, Ramona the Pest.

    (Not reading it to the girls yet — don’t wanna give them ideas — but chanced to read the first chapter myself the other week.)

    Yay Mark! You get triple points:
    – for getting the reference
    – for preparing to read your daughters beverly cleary
    – for intuiting that you were the person i had in mind when i framed the question 😉

    If I remember correctly, your daughters have Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes. After that I think Ramona’s probably tame.
