Still fighting the good fight with The Confessions of Saint Augustine.
Book club meets day after tomorrow–352 total pages in the book . . .
I am on page 301. Don’t think it’s been easy. Here’s a sample–
huh? That’s on page 283 in my book in case you want to look it up as you follow along. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha- . . .

having trouble reading it — and will finish a page and not remember
what she just read. Really?
Well, this, too, will pass. Join us Tuesday night for the “review” of
