Well, it's been a little hot and muggy to be working outside most of this week, so I've puttered around the house all day and in the late evenings I've been reading one of my "almost new" books from the thrift shop. The author sure has a great scheme for avoiding the use of quotation marks...
"Ellen Foster" by Kaye Gibbons
Sad in parts, of course. My favorite line, spoken by the main character about a teacher who helped her along the way: "She lived in the sixties. She used to be a flower child but now she is low key so she can hold a job."
I'd love to put that in the signature line of all my e-mails.
