there's a lot of really grindviolence type of songs on there

It is in the death flow 2:50 PM Saturday afternoon here by Lake Michigan. It is a windy sunny Autumn day. A good day to sit in the woods and watch leaves fall off trees.

I volunteered at the Herrick District Public Library Used Books Store today from 9:55 AM till 1 o'clock PM. The store was not busy so I mainly wandered the books store and read "Ourselves To Know" a novel by John O'Hara. I brought home from the book nook two used books to ADD to our library-

"Jesus In America: Personal Savior, Cultural Hero, National Obsession" by Richard W. Fox

"Fortune Smiles" Short Stories by Adam Johnson

There is not much else to report so I will close to drift.
