Happy Birthday to Me!

Now at long last I can open the tantalizing boxes from Amazon that have been sitting unopened on the dresser. According to Reliable Sources [okay, I was sitting in the room as owenthomas was on the phone with prettypammie and they were openly discussing how Boxes were Arriving and I was not to Open Them. I started fussing, "I'm right here. I can hear you!"

Anyway, time to get the boy to school for the last day of the year.

A Birthday coup!

My brother, owenthomas  , brother-in-law gregorsf  , mom sew_200e  , and dad billtinva  , have staged quite a coup. Somehow--one suspects in consultation with prettypammie  --they managed to find me not just one but four books by, about, or inspired by Robert A. Heinlein that I didn't already own. Those of you that know me and my book collection know that is quite a feat!

The "take:"
The Fantasies of Robert A. Heinlein Robert Heinlein's Shadow: "The Seven Starlings" and "How Aeneas Browning Got Rich"
