Book Title Noir

Received or bestowed, books tend to be a preferred gift for me.

When my beloved 93-year-old grandfather was in the hospital over Christmas, my much adored and ever-humorous husband pointed out the potential misinterpretation of the token (by one of his favorite writers) I'd selected as his holiday gift:
When this incredible book arrived---one I'd ordered for myself at the suggestion of the amazing Judy of TwinSpin---yet again, Scott questioned the title...or at least its punctuation/word placement....

His query? "Are you sure there shouldn't be a colon after 'over?'"

Absolutely certain! Humor is a very well-documented and effective healing medicine...and trust me, my melanoma-murdering man has it in spades.

[FYI: We should get word Tuesday on when Scott's next surgery will be...hoping for ASAP. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.]

Yes keep laughing. We have faced illness over here too and we continue to laugh in its face. Hard.
