I tell my kids-you want justice? Get to Heaven-you'll get it there. (Although note that the actual getting to Heaven involves more mercy than justice.)
Next up ... jumping ahead of books I am already reading or are in the pile to read ... is All Creatures Great and Small. This one is loaned to me by my sister. I remember seeing my grandfather reading this book and ads for the Public Television dramatization when I was a kid. I also remember thinking how boring that has to be. Now my perspective has changed. I can't wait to get into it.
While I haven't started reading it yet, I took a peek. Just listen to this opening salvo:
They didn't say anything about this in the books, I thought ... I lay face down on the cobbled floor in a pool of nameless muck, my arm deep inside a straining cow, my feet scrabbling for a toe hold between the stones.
("scrabbling" -what a word !).
(Oh, and by the way-I have reopened post comments at least for a try. )
Oremus pro invicem!
