Hi Ladies - Beautiful weather. Doesn't this look like me on the beach? our friends have a house on a canal which is just lovely. We hope to visit Busch Gardens soon. I'm get-ting a nice rest, + I'll be read for work. There are plenty of photos everywhere. I've been feeding the seagull
s too.  Hope things are not TOO busy. Love Marsha

Postcard #92: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk Book Review


Along the Beautiful Sandy Beaches of Florida

So I read the book Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris. I love Aesop’s fables. My favorite fable is the “Frog and the Scorpion.” So when I picked up this Sedaris book I thought they would be modern versions of fables with personified animals. I hated this book. Every word of it. What this book ended up being was a collection of vapid empty generally un-likable animals. They were personified so well that had he not given them physical animal traits I might have mistaken them for real humans. I read this book over the course of three weeks. It was like I was hate-fuc**ng this book, every night for 3 weeks reading a paragraph or so in a sitting because I loather it so much. – TM
