Mojo Book Review: “The Haunting of America” by Jean Anderson (1973)

Mojo Book Review: “The Last Battle” by C.S. Lewis

Reading time: 2 days

It was very bittersweet to me. I just did not want my reading journey to end. Yes, they’re written as children’s books, but … read the rest. . .

While I was playing with my new toy utilizing my new business tool [READ: AWESOME NEW CAMERA!!!], I was watching Lizzie Cat

Who was watching the Scrub Jays and Sparrows and Finches

Who were eating from their feeders





And who could (but didn’t) camouflage themselves in my Heavenly Bamboo.

And we were all being watched by Beautiful Berry.

I knew I had a beautiful front yard, but I didn’t know how beautiful until Kodak showed me.

Things will never be the same!

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
