Wow. It's the end of September already. Only 85 more shopping days until Christmas.

Here's something I never thought about doing ... organizing your books together so that the titles make sense, in an odd, fun sort of way.

Just one more thing to put on my to-do list when I retire....


A visitor to a college campus stood next to his guide, admiring the new Hemingway Hall.

"It's a pleasure," the visitor said at last, "to see a building named for Ernest Hemingway."

"Actually, the building is named after Joshua Hemingway," replied the guide.

"Oh, really? Was Joshua Hemingway a writer, also?"

"Yes, indeed," said the guide. "He wrote a check."
