The Road to Toledo

We’re off. Wish me luck.

We’ll be back tomorrow evening (birthday party sleepover at Mona’s), and I’ll leave the comments open, but please, please, please, no ilk-tossing.

And if you don’t mind, hold the email. There’s nothing more dispiriting than returning home and finding 74 emails waiting for you. Unless it’s coming home and finding 74 ilk-tossing comments waiting for you.

If I come across any ilk, I promis to gently push it to one side…;^)
Good luck and happy landings!

john, I knew you and your ilk would spout such heretical, ultramontane, CINO blather.

I’ve always wanted to bag an ilk–makes a much better trophy (not to mention a lot more meat) than a diir.

I just checked “Where’s My Stuff” & no sign that my 2 copies of Amy’s book will ship anytime soon.
Even though the webpage says shipping is in 3 — 4 weeks at this point, her book is #331 !!!!!
Last time I checked at Barnes & Noble (which will ship within 24 hours) her sales rank is #75 !!!!!!! She beats all the other books available. Hooray

I wish I only had to worry about 74 messages in my inbox if I was gone for a day.

My Amazon order arrived today. My direct order from Miss Amy arrived yesterday. Woohoo!
She said she didn’t want to preach to the choir. Tomorrow I start giving the books to people who thought DVC was good.

Victor – The very thought makes me feel ilk. (Or maybe it’s my lack of sleep that’s doing it.)
