Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2012 – #28, THE OUTLAWS OF SHERWOOD STREET: STEALING FROM THE RICH. For middle-grade readers, but adults with fake ID can take their chances. My first foray to the edge of the supernatural.

At first I thought it all began with a foul – if an elbow to the head’s not a foul, then what is? – but I figured out, maybe not as soon as I should have, that the beginning had come a little earlier.

    Really enjoying all the beginnings!

    C.Hobbitz: Enjoying your photos and descriptions from your travels!

    No more trips to the dentist? No such luck. After 2 hours in the chair, I only walked out with temporary crowns. :^(

    Good Sunday to all!

    I am so sorry I was not here for you yesterday….snorkle. I was with several friends playing with sewing machines ALL DAY and for some reason I was tired when I got home so I didn’t see the blog until now.


    I am glad to finally hear from you. I suppose you have checked your SDD today?

    And for the rest of you there were 3 sewing machine enthusiasts and 12 (at least) sewing machines. It doesn’t get any better than that!

    B: Rio makes a good point. We have never stayed at your place. If you don’t have hostas, we can crash on your lazy chair.

    Our Lady says the Cubs are her team because she went to a game with Friend.

    B: Our advice? Be willing to try new things. That, and don’t ask for character references. We are happy to save time and vouch for ourselves.

    Stover!…Do this! “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”…snort!…In short, do not invite the Thieves into your home…wheeze!

    Rio: Can you tell me any reason why my Lady insisted on putting on her catcher’s fear for the duration of the game? According to her, according to you, safety first.
