Guess What I Got Without Ever Nagging Not Even Once

Not word about The Shade Of The Moon, which I'm sure I'll hear about in my lifetime, since my mother is 100 years old and genetics must count for something, and not my German royalty check, which I'm sure I'll get in my lifetime, since my mother will be 101 years old in six weeks and genetics must count for something.

Nor was it this beautiful set of salt and pepper shakers, which I bought at New Paltz Crafts Fair Memorial Day weekend, and have gotten many compliments over. I posed them with a matching African Violet that I was given  for my birthday and I haven't killed yet.

I haven't killed Scooter yet either.

No, what I got was the Chinese version of The Dead And The Gone.

I promptly introduced it to its Chinese sibling.

Then, I held a small party so 危城求生 could meet its mostly green cousins.

Scooter can't resist a good party.

But I guess he realized he wasn't green, and felt like a wallflower.

But just now, he decided to get to know 危城求生 better. Maybe he and 危城求生 could be friends after all. If not, 危城求生 could be dinner!

The Salt and Pepper Shakers are beeyootiful! And they match the African Violet perfectly.

Hi Marci-

As you may remember, Carol gave me the African Violet. But when I tried to put that in the sentence, it sounded like she was the one I hadn't killed yet!

Thank you emi:)-

I can't remember the last thing I bought that I've gotten so many compliments on.

If I can find a link to the person who made them, I'll edit it in.

By my standards, that's a lot of countries!

I love the cover - the ruined buildings are fantastic. Really creepy, in a good way. :D

Also the shakers and plant are nice, but everyone seems to be complimenting those...

Hi Friendly Neighbourhood Bookseller-

I love the cover also. I've had great luck with the covers for all the books.

But there can never be too many compliments about one's salt and pepper shakers!
