We all want to be loved and appreciated. Some of us will celebrate Valentine's Day today. I'd like to send you, my readers, a couple of virtual Valentines today to show that I appreciate you.
But, last week, I got an unexpected gift of all for Valentine's Day, and today, I opened it.
A couple of Saturdays ago, I had gone to the Johnson City, New York library (which is called Your Home Library) and saw a display of wrapped books. The sign invited me to pick one. To my delight, the library told me it was mine to keep.
I love alternate history, and I thought I knew what the book was.
I was wrong, but it was by an author I am quite familiar with. I've read a number of his books. Fortunately, not this one.
Harry Turtledove has written some excellent books. And some not so excellent books. We'll see which this belongs to.
The best part, though, was coming back this past Saturday, finding several unclaimed Valentines remained, and getting one for my guest photographer. I hope she enjoys her cat related mystery.
Tell someone important in your life today that you love, or appreciate, them.
