The Bible

It is 2:20 PM Wednesday afternoon here in the western part of the State of Michigan. We live not far from Lake Michigan. I can't recall the last time we drove out to view Lake Michigan. And here we are almost in the Summer Season when the beaches are once again packed with sun worshippers.

I am extremely tired so this is going to be very short diary entry today. This morning I left the house to visit our local Goodwill and found a ton of used books. After Goodwill I went across the street to Family Fare grocery store to get some food items. I then drove home because Carol and I were going out to lunch to celebrate our 42nd Wedding Anniversary. When I got home Carol was talking to Emily's mother through a open car window and watering our front lawn. Carol and I soon left to go out for lunch and then to visit thrift stores in search of used books. I am going to list ALL the used books I bought this morning and also this afternoon/a massive book haul!
