vampires in the lemon grove

It is in the cold icy death flow 12:47 PM Tuesday afternoon. Outside it is cold and sunny right now. It has been snowing off and on all morning today. I need to go for my daily walk after I write here/in my online diaries. I am falling asleep so I better get to the point.

I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. I got up made myself a portion of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and got ready to go to a used books sale in Zeeland Michigan. I was not sure if I would go to this used books sale since it was snowing this morning, but I decided to take a deadly risk. We all have to live dangerously sometimes before we are killed off.

As I was leaving for the used books sale Carol arrived home from work. I decided to drive the car and not drive my old Dodge van to the used books sale. So Carol got out of the car and I kissed her good-bye and left. Carol said Have Fun. I do not believe in fun. I do not like the word fun. To me life is a living ordeal/being nailed to a Cross.

When I got to the used books sale it was 9:05 AM and there were few people in line. I stood waiting for the used books sale to start at 9:30 AM. I always see the same people at these used books sales/book dealers/house wives/old men like me.

Here is a list of the used books I bought today for our library-

These are the used books I got today for our library. I spent around $10.00 for all these used books. Not bad of a deal for such intellectual treasures.

Well I am completely blown out. Last night made two videos for my Booktube channel and read 'The Royal Family' a novel by William T. Vollmann. I got to shut the door and gather my wits.
