So very much looking forward to being a part of this site. I'm a literature junky. No doubt about it. I'd sell off Grandma's best china for a good read. Davey, a cousin I vividly remember from early childhood, was an addict in the true sense of the word. There wasn't anything that he wouldn't try. Several times I witnessed him come across some sort of pill that was lying around whomever's house we were celebrating the holidays in, and without a blink or a nod - just pop it in his mouth. He'd have zero idea of what it was, whose it was, where it came from, how old it was, or any inkling if it might turn his johnson chartreuse and fall off. He was willing to give it a go. I too suffer from such an impulse control issue. Praise God, my affliction is of the book variety.... or to be more specific, "a good story" variety.

Thanks for allowing me to linger among you and yours...
