It will come to no surprise to you that I enjoy reading.
It’s rare that I’m not in the middle of reading a book. In fact, I often have more than one book going, in case tonight I’m in the mood for a mystery and tomorrow I want a biography.
I don’t often get excited about the release of a new book, though Even if it’s something I want to read, I figure I’ll get around to it soon enough. But I honestly can’t wait for the Tuesday release of “Go Set a Watchman,” the much anticipated sequel to “To Kill a Mockingbird,” the Pulitzer Prize winning novel written by Harper Lee of Monroeville, Ala.
In one memorable episode of “The Andy Griffith Show,” Barney Fife got angry when Andy went through his lunch to find something to feed the dog that followed Opie to the courthouse.
“Barn, you’ve got three sandwiches in there,” Andy would say.
“Two for my lunch and one for late in the day, when I get my sinking spell,” Barney said.
Thomas Jefferson dropped by my office the other day for a chat.
Yes, that Thomas Jefferson. But don’t judge. Some people claim to see UFOs. Others set up séances to connect with their late Aunt Hildegarde. I talk to the Founding Fathers.
