Sunday, 22 January 2017 – Bookless Sunday

Sunday I was lazy. I didn’t do much reading at all, didn’t make it out to buy a Sunday paper. We were busy all day with the kids and – when we finally got time Sunday night – we ended up watching two documentaries about drugs. One was on the spread of Hepatitis C in West Virginia, another was on the use of fentanyl in Alberta, Canada. Those films made you glad you weren’t infected or addicted.

We did read books to the kids at bedtime. T read Harold and The Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson as E’s choice. It’s about a little boy who creates his world – by drawing it – as he goes through life. That’s a fantasy for “kids of all ages.”

I read Here Comes the Easter Cat by Deborah Underwood as C’s choice. It is also really good. The cat in question is a feline with a bad attitude who wants to take over for the Easter Bunny.

About mobilemojoman

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
