News & Opinion: Remember When....
Not just snowing, but really snowing. You know that snow when you were a kid where the piles were high and went almost to your hips and it was just GREAT? It was like that kind of snow. I was, I think 8 or 9 and it went a bit past my hips and yes, it was GREAT! I was tumbling in in, running in it, climbing the great foothills they created in front of the mountains (ok a building). In this particular case, it was the Library building and the foothills abounded in front of it. I loved the Library, especially that day! I found a mammoth one right by the parking lot, climbed on it and started playing King of the Hill with my self, having a blast. Until. Yep, turned out that the hill was actually a bush.
A rose bush.
A rose bush that was big, and huge just like that snow mounds around it. Being such a large bush, it had large thorns and yours truly felt the sting in two places on his knee. I cried, wouldn't you? If only I knew better. If only I had great, vast information at my disposal....well hopefully this listing of audio books will bring some knowledge to you!
