my car is grounded, ran over a curb and just shredded two tyres. I don't have the money at the moment for two replacements. Auckland is huge on foot and public transport. So mad at myself!! Cujo was a good dog, the rabies was the problem. Such a good film and book, one of the best stories from King, gritty and realistic. What a gift Stephen has!!

I thought Cujo was great because as a youngster I had a phobia regarding rabies and that dog was one of my worst nightmares! During the sixties rabies was pretty much eradicated but I still had a fear about it, hence my revulsion of bats. Plus, you really do not want to go through rabies treatment...especially the initial injections. First day: Rabies vaccine, tetanus (if not up to date...tetanus a is horrible disease as well.) and rabies immunoglobulin (four of these injections based on your weight.) then three f/u injections of the rabies vaccine These are given if you have contact with a rabid animal....say a bat flies into your hair (not common but it has happened) and flies away. Since they cannot test the brain, you need to have the injections as a bat bite is very small and can go undetected. {{{shudder}}} Hate the fecckkers!

You are free! It might be 30 minutes before this takes, and you might have to log off and log back on for it to reset, but you are now unmoderated. Be good. Don't disappoint me.;;D

I can reread Cujo anytime, and often read it once a year. Very very re-readable! These days Donna and Tad would be saved by her cellphone maybe?

I just finished re-reading it a few hours ago. Haven't read it since it came out. I forgot how good it was. I like how Mister King played around with the closet. Was it something more than rabies? Were there two separate but connected things going on? Well, on to the next one...

'Firestarter', that one is always a kick in the pants after a while;)
