End of the rainbow: What book did you have a hard time tracking down a copy of?

Early Ripening: American Women’s Poetry Now by Marge Piercy. It took me at least 25 years to find a copy. Trust me I looked but it was more difficult before book stores were online. My friend was looking for it so I said I would keep an eye out. So I did. She thought I gave up after a short time. However, I never gave up the search.

Pot of gold: When you found that book, was it worth the quest?

This year, I finally found an available copy. The search it over finally. I haven’t told my friend yet but I will soon.

Irish Whiskey: what’s your favorite tradition of St. Patty’s Day?

Leaving work early so I can go to the bar ASAP. Then acquiring green necklaces with flashing shamrocks at various bars. I haven’t done this tradition in many years. I broke my ankle the last time. The ER nurses didn’t appreciate my flashing shamrocks.
