What Was Waiting for Me When I Came Home

I mean, aside from child and pets and house and my own bed: Three weeks worth of books sent, which I will catch up with and post during the week. As Athena said: “It’s like Christmas, but for work.” Yes, well.
In other news, I am home. And I get to be home for, like, four whole days. And then I leave again. I am determined to enjoy these next four days fully.
I promise I didn’t send you a book!
What kind of books? ARCs for other people’s books? Book fairy showing you favoritism?
Sleeping in your own bed is heaven.
I suddenly feel the need to send a SASE and a copy of Moby Dick, just to make your life more random.
Please sign it “To John, Best Wishes, Herman Melville”.
But still, Athena has the right idea.
What percentage of those will you read? When I was younger and had fewer things going on in my life I was a voracious reader. These days I’m lucky if I can get through one book a month. But I do play and sing a whole lot of music, so it’s not all drudgery.
Just train your dog to eat the mail. And the mailman.
You have a banjo? I have new respect for you sir.
What were your impressions on Australia? I hope the people of Perth treated you well.
WOO HOO! BANJO! Mind you, getting the right bend on the finger picks can be a pain in the tips… and deciding between plastic and metal (I prefer metal). LOL
Also, what will you do with all those envelopes? I mean seriously. Save them for winter in case the power goes out and you need heat/fire? ;-)
P.s., Your bridge appears to be a little out of whack, unless you have a really whacked out banjo! And I can buy that for a dollar!
Welp, welcome home anyways.
bit short for a banjo innit? more like a banjo uke I’m guessing.
That’s an awful lot of books!
Nice placement of your Hugos in the background there *wink wink*
Heh. It’s really not intentional; they have to go somewhere and Krissy made the display a couple of years ago. If I take a picture in my office they are likely to show up.
