briefly checking in...

I was hoping to post on the blog during the past couple of days, but I've been a little tied up...

Cue laugh track.

I should be able to 'extricate myself' and post something soon.

In the meantime, you might want to check this out: RevSS will be involved in a Walk to Defeat ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease). If you would like to help sponsor her, visit her walk page.

I'm having such a flashback. That's an old Nancy Drew illustration, isn't it? The Hidden Staircase, right?

How did I even dredge that out of my memory. It's been 40 years since i read that book.

Why thank you, pg! :)

Yes, Ruth, it is indeed Nancy Drew! But I believe the illustration is from 'The Clue in the Old Stagecoach'. (Either way, you've got a great memory.!)

Rev SS said...

Yep, like you in blue ... and I thank you and Peggy thanks you .... a bunch ... for supporting my ALS walk!

I loved Nancy Drew when I was a kid. That illustration makes me want to go check some out of the children's library and revisit childhood. LOL

I'm still looking for a copy of The Hidden Staircase that doesn't cost $100. :)

Funny. I did not recognize it as a Nancy Drew pic...but those were my absolute favorite books growing up. And when I had read all of those, I moved on the The Hardy Boys.
