“The Doctor’s Wife” By Elizabeth Brundage — Wow, Quite The Story; Would Make A Gripping Movie.

Quite the book. Quite the story. I just checked IMDb.com. I can’t find a movie of this book. That is pretty amazing. IF a book was made to be a hit as a movie it has to be this. C’est la vie. Maybe it is still in the making.

It is an ‘old’ book. It had come out in 2005. Deanna had picked it up at our ‘Swap Shop‘. I heard so much about it while she was reading it that I too had to read it.

Very topical. Very powerful. Does make you think and wonder.

She is an incredibly gifted writer. No denying that. She had me in AWE with her writing. I was, thus, amused to see that she won a ‘James Michener‘ award. So, she has to be good.

I will confess that the book was amazingly two-paced — maybe, very intentionally. The first & last chapter are classic page-turners. You can’t wait to see what the next sentence holds. But, parts of the middle were hard going — possibly even a tad boring.

But, definitely a book to read. I might even order one of her others. I am glad I serendipitously stumbled across her.

Rochester is always a good hunting grounds for pictures of flowers. Today was no exception. I lucked out. I think I still have at least a month left in terms of being able to snap pretty flowers OUTSIDE before the snow arrives in New Hampshire. So, I am going to make the best of that. Foliage is early this year. Very early. So, with luck I will be able to transition from flowers to foliage. Enjoy.

Am I The ONLY ONE That Has Worked Out That Donald Trump Will ALWAYS Delay Enforcing Tariffs?

Well, lets face it. You can, if you squint hard enough and put on rose-colored specs, see that Donald Trump and I are twins separated at birth.

No wonder I can understand him and predict what he is going to do. We are so, so very alike — he is just better looking and is rich.

Let me tell you. Donald is NOT serious about tariffs. He is just using it as a cudgel. Don’t get excited about it. Play the market assuming that the tariffs will ALWAYS be kicked down the road.

Trust me.

IF you don’t, go back and look.

He has always, push come to shove, delayed tariffs at the 10th hour. The GOOD, KIND, GENEROUS man he is, he does NOT wait until the 11th hour. He does it earlier. Bless his BIG heart.

So, now you know.

Trump is not serious about tariffs.
