New book...

We were in Crawfordsville this morn before 9:30....hubbies appointment was at 9:45...so we had a few minutes to wait.  They did 61 patches...so far none are causing him to itch.  I don't know if that is a good thing or not.  Hopefully, we will at least know some things he is NOT allergic to.  He goes back Friday to have the patches removed...then back Monday.
**********************
I have had time this afternoon to do something productive, but do you want to know what I have done?
I have been working on my jigsaw puzzle while listening to the audible version of My Southern Journey by Rick Bragg....my SIL/Best Friend had been given it for Christmas and bless her heart, she told me about it.  I checked the library right then and put a hold on it.  Oh, if you are any part Southern, have family in the South, or just a bit Southern at heart, you would like this book.  I have laughed, cried and been teary eyed almost since the first words.  It takes me back to another place and time...he captures the heart of the place like no other author I have known.

There is a story about the Crazy Cat Lady (his mom). Another  story is title:  For a Vegetable I'll Have White Gravy....in the latter he says "I always wanted some washboard abs.  But I always seemed to want some babyback ribs.  Washboard abs are hard to get...I can get babyback ribs for $6.95 per pound."  Aren't we all at least a bit like that...some of us worse than others.

Oh it is just the most wonderful book...one I will go back to to listen to time and again.

Hoping you and your husband get some answers soon. The itching has really been a mystery hasn't it?
Thanks for telling us about the book. Sounds like one I will enjoy. I know you both are tired; hope you rest well.

My daughter went through those tests when she was small. Dogs and Dust. She is allergic to Dogs. Did I break her heart and give Porky away? Nope. Pulled all the carpet out of the house to help with the dust. Took all the stuff off shelves to help with the dust. Could not and would not give that dog away!!

Hope your hubs gets good answers.
xx, Carol

I hope the itching problem will be solved and no more itching. Itching can be so unbearable. So nice to listen to audible books, we are free to go about our housework while listening.

Sounds great, a book that makes you laugh! I wonder if I would understand the humour since I'm from the north.

This sounds like a book that I would like. I've heard of Rick Bragg but have never read any of his books. Thanks for the recommendation! Hope your hubby gets some answers soon. Take care.

I looked on Kindle but it was 12.99. Will have to go online for our library and see if I can check it out. It sounds wonderful. Our family is definitely southern. Georgia, Louisiana, and then Florida.

I listened to the sample of the book on Amazon. Very much enjoyed it! I liked the snippet you provided about "For a vegetable I'll have white gravy," and then his comment about washboard abs and babyback ribs! That would be a great book to listen to while traveling.

Good luck with the visit on Monday. :-)
