Sunday (Evening) Post on Monday


Yesterday got away from me, and so I am writing Sunday’s intended post on Monday. Looking back at the last one on June 18th, I found that I had started Dr. Sleep by Stephen King which I am still continuing to read, in fact, nearing the “finish line”; and my, is it good!

❧MATH: An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first orders a beer. The second orders half a beer. The third orders a quarter of a beer. Before the fourth can speak, the bartender puts two beers…

The idea, friends, is to grab the book you are currently reading, copy two or three random sentences as a tease to get someone else to read the book too. As a big Stephen King fan, I am reading one published in 2013 which answers the question, “Whatever happened to the little boy in The Shining who had “special abilities.” Danny or Dan, as he goes by as an adult, is having a hard time of it, to put it mildly. As part of his “shine-ability,” he uses his gift for good in a nursing hospice where he is known as Dr. Death, not because he participates in euthanasia, but because he eases peoples’ minds in their last moments.
