Total – 15 books That’s a lot for 1 month. But quite a few of them were either quite short or just easy reads. It did seem easy to read intensively for many hours, and as it worked out I had the time to do so. Lucky me!

A Rare Postcard

An online friend of mine is bidding on a rare postcard. Tomorrow she will tell me all about it – I can hardly wait! What does she mean? I regularly scour (oops that’s a good Wordle word) the various postcard dealers offerings. I don’t spend more than a few dollars on an individual card but all my “little” purchases add up.

Irish Postcard

This postcard is certainly old but I don’t think it is particularly rare. It cost all of $3.

Wrestling With the “W” Challenge

I have got 2 tries left and it’s a real puzzler. 3 letters nicely spaced and 2 to find.. Hmm.

These 2 probably have the answer already

Later – I resorted to using the dictionary and eventually I solved the challenge – got in under the wire as far as the Wordle statistics are concerned. But it was a less than satisfying experience.

This Mad Month of March

Will the rain ever stop? Will the sun ever shine? It seems to me that the weather here in Seattle has been particularly bad this month. What has gone wrong? No sunshine that’s what is wrong for me. However, looking on the bright side of things, I have succumbed to Wordle and it is so much fun – and challenging. Three victories in a row – I am on a roll.
