Most of the books on this table came from recommendations from friends: Kathleen Scott, Denny Coates, and Richard Gilbert. Chautaqua journal, seen in the photo, has Richard’s story, A Dry Season, in it.
Two of the books, T. C. Boye’s Stories, and Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel are recent acquisitions borrowed for a few weeks from the University of West Florida library.
I’ve been talking about getting a library card at UWF for a year or more and finally did it last week. Why did I wait so long? Man, talk about Heaven!

It’s summer, of course, but now that I have my card and a parking decal, I plan to become a regular and drink from the fountain of this incredible local resource.
