I've been thinking of Philadelphia a lot lately. Since I likely won't be back until our wedding next September, I've been getting some reminders of home. I got the Gritty Funko Pop to go along with the Phanatic, and built my Metal Earth Independence Hall. I also bought an Amos Lee vinyl, and I finally colored in my Philly bookmark from the #phillylittens meetup a couple years ago 😁

wanderinglynn Love the mini Independence Hall! 🧡 4y
Clare-Dragonfly OK, I don‘t normally like the Funkos but the Phanatic and Gritty are meant to be 😆❤️❤️❤️ 4y
TieDyeDude @wanderinglynn MetalEarth model. I love them! Pretty inexpensive and usually enjoyably challenging 4y

TieDyeDude @Clare-Dragonfly Gotta hate-love Gritty 😁 4y
ValerieAndBooks Oh yes, that meetup and bookmark!! I still haven‘t had the nerve to color in mine 😊. Do you think you‘ll ever move back or are you content in Colorado? 4y
TieDyeDude @valerieandbooks Whelp, Yuengling announced that it is working on distributing to the Western states, so... 😆
Seriously, though, time will tell, but despite the sh*tshow 2020 was, we've enjoyed our first year in CO and are so far pretty content.

I‘m lying on the couch recovering from a 3-day migraine. So Mr. B decided it must be time to upgrade my laptop‘s OS. And I‘m reading my pick for #groupn #nfornonfiction #lmpbc. Wishing I was with the #phillylittens for the meetup instead.

UwannaPublishme Feel better! 🤗💖 6y
Andrea4 3 days! My god! Feel better soon!!! 6y

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Andrea4 Well, it‘s only been nasty for part of that time. Otherwise, just low level and more manageable. Still, it‘ll wipe a girl out! Thanks for the good wishes. 6y
Crazeedi Hope you're doing much better! 6y
Mollyanna Hope you feel better soon! 🤞🏻 6y
Dolly This book was a kind of migraine. So much suffering. 😩 6y
BooknerdsLife Oh no! Migraine is terrible! Hope you feel better soon 🙏🏼💕 6y
minkyb Take care! 6y
huntersmom1977 Hope you are feeling better! I understand your pain all too well my dear. Healing vibes sent your way!! 🙏💞 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi @Mollyanna @BooknerdsLife @minkyb @huntersmom1977 Thanks all! I‘ve survived. I really appreciate your ♥️! 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Dolly Yes, there‘s a lot of suffering. I read Shantaram earlier this year, which is fictional Mumbai from 20-30 years earlier. That might make it harder for me to manage this book. We‘ll see ... (edited) 6y
alisiakae Oh no! I‘m sorry you missed the #phillymeetup 😢 Hope the migraine goes away soon! I have been dealing with an awful sinus headache since coming home from the mountains on Saturday. 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft Thanks, my friend. I think it‘s gone, although I still have a twinge of something that‘s a little off. I hope your sinus headache goes away soooon!!! 6y
ValerieAndBooks I hope you‘re feeling a lot better! We missed you yesterday. 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @ValerieAndBooks Thanks Valerie. I‘m doing fine now. I missed being there too! 6y
