I'm sorry that I haven't been posting again, but summer session for Graduate school has begun! My first class is on post-apocolypse literature and it's a bit depressing. The first novel I have to read is called Riddley Walker by Russel Hoban. It is a very odd book and is completely written in phonetic Kent dialect. I've only been able to get through 2 of the 17 chapters so far and I have to finish the novel by Monday night. This is the first time I've really ever been worried about passing an English class. I've never encountered a book like this before and, quite frankly, I'm intimidated by the posts I've been reading from my classmates on the online Blackboard system. A few of them are PhD./DA students and far better read than I will ever be. For the first time in a long time, I'm at a loss and a disadvantage in a college class. I was able to find a way to catch up in the past, but this book has really put a blockade in front of me. So, while I try to understand this book, my posts may be very short or just full of Fur Babies. I don't want to leave my readers without pictures of Frankie and Marty!
