I left a little early to pick up our dog Rudy at the groomer's to visit a thrift store and a used books store. Did not find anything that caught my eye. After I picked up Rudy at Noon I drove over to a Salvation Army thrift store to look at their used books and found these used books to add to our library-
"Evil Eye: Four Novellas Of Love Gone Wrong" by Joyce Carol Oates
"A Fair Maiden" a novel by Joyce Carol Oates (we have over 40 books by Oates in our library)
"The Rage of the Vulture" a novel by Barry Unsworth (we have in our library two other novels by Unsworth- "Sacred Hunger" and "The Quality of Mercy")
"Native Speaker" a novel by Chang-rae Lee (we have two other novels by Lee in our library- "Aloft" and "A Gesture Life")
"Writers at Work" The Paris Review Interviews 1st Series Edited, and with an introduction, by Malcolm Cowley (I have already 2nd Series and 3rd Series "Writers at Work" I do not know if there was a 4th Series)
After visiting this thrift store I drove home in a snow storm. It is a blessing having a warm dry cell in a world gone insane.
Not much else to report at this time. I am holding on for dear life. When not dozing I have been seeking to read, "Reformed Catholicity: The Promise of Retrieval for Theology and Biblical Interpretation" by Michael Allen & Scott R. Swain.
" It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Second Timothy 2:11-15
