Reading is FundaMENTAL

I am reading a book that is not about baseball.

The book has over seven hundred pages printed with very small letters.

Larger print would have made the book a million pages.

I am on page 70.
Update: I am on page 120.

Pray for me.

Blogspot will not let me download the cover picture.

Out! damned Blogspot.

Sometimes I hate Blogspot.

The link above probably won't work either.

Oh, me of little faith.

The book is entitled: "THE FIRST AMERICAN: The life and times of Benjamin Franklin. "

You should read it too.

Since I sleep with you and you talk in your sleep, I will just wait for the midnight synopsis. :o)

I once read a great biography on Lincoln by (I think) William Saffire. It was an excellent book.

Are you sure it's not about baseball? A blogged book report would be nice.
p.s. I don't think the link worked.

Uncle J,
Sounds like a good book..
Any ponies in Ben's Bio?

Midnight Synopsis: sounds like a cool name for a rock group.

Saur: I'll read that book next.

Seeker: I'm patiently waiting for Ben to pick up a bat and at least hit an apple..

G-man: If there's not I'll go back through and mark out buffet and put in the word pony.

"Ben carefully chose which "pony" he would eat..."

That book is sure to be very interesting because Ben Franklin was quite a guy. He invented a LOT of things, and he was very intelligent and witty. He was also quite the womanizer.
Enjoy your long book with the tiny print. May you reach the end soon and rejoice in your accomplishment.

Subject: Mark Your Calendar

As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see
any woman other than his wife naked, and that he must commit suicide if
he does.
So next Saturday at 4 PM. Central time all American women are
asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended
for this anti-terrorist effort.
All men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of
their house to prove they are not Muslims, and to show support for all American women. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Extreame Muslim sentiment.

The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America.
It is your patriotic duty to pass this on.

That has W-A-Y toooo many pages for me. If it was a nutrition book I probably would give it a shot.

Yes, you should do a book report when you finish! No more then 300 words, typed, double spaced, watch your grammer, and no coma splicing!

I am waiting very very patiently for you to be done so I CAN read it too. :o)

PS Why is there a kite in our bedroom?

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Milk those cows each day.
Eat some cheese curds
With your crackers;
That's the only way! (hey, hey, hey)
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Have your milk and cheese.
Build up healthy sons and daughters;
It's a breeze!
