George, I hardly knew you....

Until I read His Excellency:  George Washington by Joseph J. Ellis, that is.  I mean, of course I knew about those wooden dentures and the whole nasty cherry tree business, but nothing much else.

So by now if you are thinking I am carrying this whole founding fathers thing a little too far, let me assure you that there is method to my madness in bringing George up.  And here it is:  his biography is just one of the many books that I have on my bookshelf and that I loan out with regularity.  Some books I really don't care if I never see again  (or would prefer that I didn't).  Others, like my historical biographies and gardening books (and boooooooyyy do I have a lot of them...),  I want to share with others, but........well.........I want them back..........where they belong.

So, to keep track of them, I recommend this:  Imprint them with an ever-so-classy custom stamp
from Expressionary Stationery (to find a personalized stamp, just click),  a wonderful on-line
source for all sorts of personalized things for book lovers.

Or you could try one like this            
(did you notice that I snuck in another
 president on you......)                                    

AND RIGHT NOW UNTIL THE END OF THE MONTH (at least that's what the flyer said), you can save 40% off your purchase by using the coupon code "SUPERHOT"
at checkout.

(I learned how to pitch a product from my mom.  Doesn't this picture remind you of Lucille
Ball in that Vega-meta-mitamen episode?  It does me.)

But seriously, I have the bee stamp (see how I use it on my tags)

Oh...............I don't get a cut of the take or anything.....really

And may I ever so meekly ask a favor of you, sweet Reader?  If you like my little blog, would you please forward to someone else who might enjoy it.... or who just needs a little cheering up.....or who might want to know you're thinking of them?  Sometimes I feel like I'm preachin' to an empty church.  Thank you ever so much,  Linda. 


  1. Oh, one more thing, thank heavens for someone who knows what a potager is. :) ~~Dee

  2. Hi Linda, Michael and Lynde sent your blog to me in an email. Love it. I didn't know you were writing a blog, and although we've never truly met, I feel like we know one another.

    Cheers for another Oklahoma gardening blog.~~Dee

  3. Linda! I'm your newest subscriber and I love it, love it, love it! I'll definitely share with all my other blogging friends. Check me out at www.whocares-leslie@blogspot.com but since you may be reading it for the first time, start from the bottom and go up. xoxoxo

  4. Welcome Dee and Leslie! Thanks for hanging out with me!

  5. Welcome home Linda! Loved reading about your home visit. Hearing about saying the rosary in the car reminds me of saying the rosary after dinner with 9 of us around the dining room table. Try explaining that to your teen date who's sitting on the front porch waiting for you. Yikes!!! Toni W.

  6. I do love your blog and it's beautiful photography. Keep it up. I have started a blog, sewdonna.blogspot.com and am having a good time with it!


Please leave a comment! I love to hear from you!
