Big Guy: All Books, No Grapes

Hmmm. What to make of this? Big Guy goes to the “whole Bunch of” Grapes bookstore and leaves with the following titles: “Freedom,” “The Red Pony” and “To Kill a Mockingbird.” What do it mean?

The Red Pony is about closing the barn door after the horse got out. To Kill a Mockingbird is set in the middle of the country’s Great Depression. It’s about a tragic miscarriage of justice by a racist white society against a Black man.

I don’t know what Freedom is about because it hasn’t really been released for sale yet. But an early Amazon review indicates it’s about a well-intentioned couple who lead the charge against an evil, environment-destroying big-coal mining empire, while falling prey to the nefarious intents of a Bush-Cheney crony. Not to worry: they emerge triumphant and filled with renewed hope. The review says we love the characters “not for their charm or goodness, but because they have their reasons…” Generally good enough for government work.

Lady M may venture out later today, it depends on how quickly the Botox kicks in. We want to appear relaxed on our vacay.

Relaxed. Not Angry. It can be done, it just requires a little assist.

Update: Because we don’t want to go out looking like this, now do we? And you people wonder why we need a travel entourage of 24. Hair, nails and makeup alone requires a staff of 12.
