  43. OH MY GOD YOU GUYS! I only just found this, and only because Fird Birfle told me on Facebook to look for something here from yesterday. (I took the day off and wasn’t at a computer.)
    You people are the best friends ever. *choking up* I am so honored to actually be mentioned in a CO post, and all of your comments and good wishes are so wonderful.
    I LOVE YOU GUYS. Thank you, thank you all. And Skippy also thanks you.


    *Leslie goes merrily off, onto a side tangent, which has nothing to do with birthdays or small adorable animals……. sorry guys ….this won’t take forever, I promise….*

    Everything that I’ve encountered tv/ books suggests that there are places in Poland which might be GORGEOUS.

    Also?? Last year , via an entirely non-organized path, I unexpectedly stumbled upon a book called Push not the river
    by a professor called James Conroyd Martin. It turned out to be quite indepth (to me) historical fiction (?) ca late 1700’s during reign/ Empress Catherine…..some events of which I had never before heard/ read.
    THIS BOOK WAS IS MARVELOUS (although not a glossy fast easy read). It is evidently based / developed from somebody last name (approx) Berezowska. The info on the book jacket blurbs, says that Martin is or was already working on a manuscript for a sequel novel.

    It really did feel JUST like being in the midst of Doctor Zhivago; the complex government and citizens’ social and political developments…the snow….the time in history….

    I recommend it very warmly to pre-1900s history/ romance geeks out there in COland or to those interested in Poland. I wonder what you would think of it, jerzowa????
