"He means slavery could have been phased out, with job training programs and as such," said Loretta.

Snapper by Brian Kimberling
Nathan Lochmueller studies birds, earning just enough money to live on. He drives a glitter-festooned truck, the Gypsy Moth, and he is in love with Lola, a woman so free-spirited and mysterious she can break a man’s heart with a sigh or a shrug. Around them swirls a remarkable cast of characters: the proprietor of Fast Eddie’s Burgers & Beer, the genius behind “Thong Thursdays”; Uncle Dart, a Texan who brings his swagger to Indiana with profound and nearly devastating results; a snapping turtle with a taste for thumbs; a German shepherd who howls backup vocals; and the very charismatic state of Indiana itself. And at the center of it all is Nathan, creeping through the forest to observe the birds he loves and coming to terms with the accidental turns his life has taken.


This week’s statements:
1. Sometimes I wonder if I should be watching too much tv but I know I won’t stop
2. Ginger is my favorite flavor of  Tea
3. The thing I remember most vividly about childhood is my dad teaching us Physics during dinner
4. When I am honest about it, I really love reading mushy romances

Wow - your no. 3 'teaching physics at the dinner table' sounds fascinating...

Phasing out slavery? Sounds like an interesting book! My dad "tried" to teach us Physics, but I am terrible at it so it never really worked! Stop by My Friday post if you have the time!

My granddaughter learned economics at the dinner table. Great place to teach kids.

Vonnie said...

Huh...that's interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about that though.

Imagine if that was actually a possibility, instead of the history of slaves as we know it to be.
Sounds like a very interesting book.
Happy weekend!!

I love mushy romance novels too. Sometimes, it's just nice to get lost in the fairy tale!!! :)

LA Botchar said...

yep...a mushy novel is my guilty pleasure too. My mom was big on Manners Matter over dinner. I can't say it has not served me well - she was right; they matter.

Thanks for playing - I could have used a few physic lessons growing up!
