    Mary, with all that happened in the last part of the book, I forgot about the woman on trial . I was sympathetic to her.

    Re: International Army February 2020

    Just popping in to say hi.

    And to mention that i might be quiet sometimes, but i do believe i deserve some sort of recognition for past contributions. If admin could simply acknowledge my input henceforth and forthwith, it'd be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hey! Where's my threadstarter banner?

    I acknowledge you @@@@@ Mr G

    Agree, NoSugar. I found her really narcissistic but also surrounded by narcissists. They all deserved each other. And she didn't have any sort of redemptive awareness by the end of it. Just alluded to husband having an affair and how disgusting . Erm.....s'cuse me...

    I had a good old look around the local library sites today after Molly mentioned Borrow Box and there were all these fabulous things. Free streaming, ebooks, online language classes. Reserved myself some sugar addict type books (I Quit Sugar and Sweet Poison) and collected them after work along with a Ruth Hogan book (anyone read her?) So glad to be reading again.

    JC I went to Woolworths after work and saw all of these frantic looking men running around the shopping centre grabbing what they could out of florist's buckets. What I REALLY like is rocking up tomorrow and scoring heavily discounted flowers.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Morning and @@@@@ to all and acknowledgments Mr G.
    What I would do if Mr. JC brought me roses..................Addams Family-Morticia cuts heads off roses - YouTube
    Tbh I'd be a bit suss if he brought anything in.

    I've just downloaded a short course in Latin. Mr. JC did it 'til he was 18 and helpful in Law and quizzes.
    BTW I haven't got past page two.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Re: International Army February 2020

    Books and reading are a passion of mine, an activity that I truly missed when I was drinking. My head was too muddled when it hit the pillow at night to remember anything that I had read. Drinking sure is a waste of time!

    As @abcowboy mentioned, it's not the banner that's so bad, it's the color! I've seen people driving cars that were a similar shade of yellow. It's an eyesore on the road...ugghh!

    Have a great day(or night) Army!

    Hey Judy!! good to see you -- I'm sure the banner colour would be easily changed by Admin... I sort of like it and felt initially that it might encourage folks to start threads - make it more interesting round here... but maybe not.... quite a few not liking it!!
    I live for reading tbh Judy - I couldn't imagine life without a book - I never quit reading altogether in the black times but yeah - I used to get muddled and forget characters and re-read and then get bored - had to re-read quite a few since sobriety - so sad..
    Hope things are good with you and please do pop in whenever you feel you fancy a chat! xx

    Evening everyone. Good to see you Jude. I too love reading, one of life’s greatest pleasures. Off out to dinner in a little while. Expecting another storm tomorrow ffs. Was hoping to get a long hike in, oh well it is that time of year. Happy Valentines Day by the way.
