Original Starting post for this thread:
Threads for critters, gardening, dinner, movies, etc. Does anyone read any more? What are you reading, do you recommend it, and why or why not?

My most recent read is Natasha Trethewey's "Beyond Katrina," a collection of poems and prose about the Mississippi gulf coast. I fell in love with her the first time I met her and heard her read, several years ago. In this work she confronts racism, urban development, and the way in which natural disasters reveal seams in our society. But she does so through observations about individual persons and their experiences. A very good read.

Ahh...Spokanesas. Don't get over there much, but I'm on the prettiest route to Seattle...

Just started "Hidden Figures". The book that inspired the movie. So far it's fantastic.

And on topic, Just finished "Billy Lynn's long halftime walk"

Nah. Bought it in the Miami airport. Probably wouldn't have finished it if the flight were shorter.

@BT

"I slowed down one day to try and look in her window and she was in the yard. " Pervert.

@Annie

Which Valley are we talking about? Auburn? Yakima? Spokane? Our favorite club is in Tukwila which is technically in the Auburn Valley. We could put you up for the night at our usual local hotel. Fondly know as "The pleasure palace".

BT if it would be for the good of All- I suppose I could allow and offer up my own Bosom Buddies for you to learn Braille on. (go Big or go home right?) Also- the word 'bosom' Should-by the very nature of it-have double s's. Like my Double D's.

@Current: the Valley. I have a few friends in Seattle I haven't seen for years, and then other friends that live in other directions in the state too. I may have to do a Grande Tour. "Annie: Live Onstage! Special Engagement One Night Only" except I'm pretty sure I'm not rated PG & gosh help us you do NOT want me to sing! But a drunken night w you & your GF ordering pizza -I'm in!

Ok, enough tomfoolery. Back to the salt mines.

Damn! I spelled bosom wrong. I should probably take a Continuing Ed class...Hopefully, in Braille.

For a NY minute I thought you meant to type "debone", and then, using the wisdom garnered from 5 years of high school and even more in college, it dawned on me that you were making a funny. Well played.

Annie, if the alcohol is flowing, I'd break out my best non-British, yet British-sounding Julia Child impersonation. I met her a few times when I lived in Boston. She fancied the dining room at the Fairmont and My ex and I lived right around the corner. Meaning, I fancied the bar. Later, I lived in Cambridge and would walk past her house, across Harvard Yard to the T. I slowed down one day to try and look in her window and she was in the yard. I told her that I was a big fan and she told me that there was another name for that, and laughed. She was Tom Hanks - Bosoom Buddies tall.

When she died, her family/estate donated her kitchen to the Smithsonian. It was dismantled and rebuilt in the Museum of American History. It's a small exhibit, but it's one of my faves along with the display showing the items and notes left at the Vietnam Memorial, and the signpost from MASH.

"Appetite for Life" perhaps?

Speaking of appetites....I think a visit to Washington sounds delightful. My GF and I will teach you how to bone a chicken....or something.

Where in Washington?
