BethM Got it in and didn‘t get wet 🎉 4y
KathyWheeler @Bookwormjillk aren‘t they? I wish I knew what they were. Most of the plants have labels but these didn‘t. 4y

KathyWheeler @BethM That‘s a good way to look at it. I was annoyed because I didn‘t get in a longer walk. 4y

I was #HookedonaFeeling of humor listening to this yesterday after dad and I finished the Backman, which was also hilarious.

While these stories aren‘t as good as the ones in her first book, Funny in Farsi, they‘re still good for a laugh! 😂😂

By the way, I love this song! It‘s a ‘60s fav. 🎼 #MayMovieMagic
