1) Tolkien (The Authorized Biography) - Humphrey Carpenter 2) "The Inklings: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams and their friends" - Humphrey Carpenter 3) "Have A Nice Day: A Tale of Blood and Sweatsocks" - Mick Foley 4) "Spring Creek Chronicles" - Leo Lovel 5) And I used to have an excellent biography on C.S. Lewis which is probably packed up in a box somewhere in my garage. I can't remember the title nor the author at the moment but that would be my 5th pick.

Wow! So I'm not alone in regards to smells bringing back memories. One that will trigger some memories is, believe it or not, Sprite. Yep, the soft drink. Back when I was a little rug rat, we would visit my paternal Grandparents who lived in a cabin outside the tiny town of Shubuta, Mississippi. There were two smaller buildings outside the cabin. One was the washing building that had the washer and dryer and the other we called the "pool room" not because it had a swimming pool in it but a commercial pool table that had the coin system removed so the billard balls would always roll through the system and in the holding bay. Anyway, my Grandfather had not only the pool table, but a black and white TV, a chest freezer and a refrigerator. The chest freezer usually held steaks, fish, and other meats kept frozen to be used later. The fridge however held various softdrinks, usually Coca-Cola, Sprite, Nehi Grape and Orange Crush. My Grandfather would have friends over and the soft drinks (specifically the Coca-Cola and Sprite) would be used for mixed alcoholic beverages. The Grape Nehis and Orange Chrushes were intended for kids. However when we were there in the summer I would usually get a Sprite to drink and sit down and read the stacks of old Life magazines dating from the 30's and 40's. So sometimes today, when I open a Sprite and get a whiff of the lemon-lime odor, I'd get a flashback memory of those times. Some other odors bring back memories as well but Sprite tends to do it most often.

Congratulations on your blessed marriage. I too feel blessed being married to my wife. I am also fortunate that we haven't seriously injured each other by accident because we're both so klutzy. God brought you two together -- remember that. He knows what he's doing.

Chris, I'll admit I have yet to read the Bible all the way through. I've read the New Testament all the way through several times but to be honest, I haven't quite made it through all the Old Testament. Numbers especially is hardest for me to read without my eyes blurring.

1) Mere Christianity - C.S. Lewis (it's next on my to-read list after I finish an omnibus of three books by Charles Swindoll) 2) The instruction manual for my Boss Guitar Pedal system (okay it's not a book but i've been messing with the pedal system {a Christmas gift for myself from about 8 years ago} at home and have never read the silly manual -- it's a Tim Allen-esque guy thing, I guess) 3) Florida's Miracle Strip: From Redneck Riviera to Emerald Coast -- Tim Hollis 4) Life and Death in a Small Southern Town: Memories of Shubuta, Mississippi -- Gail Graham Yates 5) The Trinity: Evidence And Issues -- Robert Morey (I keep trying to start this one but lose the momentum -- I tend to use this as a reference). Speaking of books, have anyone checked out the website called Libraything (http://www.librarything.com/) a very cool way of cateloging your books online and sharing your interests with fellow readers. My "library" is at http://www.librarything.com/catalog.php?view=Beukeboom and I'm still adding to it from time to time. As a free service I'm limited to 200 books but I can pay $25 for a lifetime membership and it's unlimited. I'm enjoying it thus far.

Speaking of Lewis Grizzard one of my favorite quotes of his: Lewis’ advice to Atlantans in case of nuclear war: "If you live on the South side of Atlanta, get on I-75 and go south. If you live of the North side of Atlanta get on I-75 and go north. If you are a Yankee get on 285." [NOTE: I-285 is a loop around Atlanta]

I, for one, am thankful for all American troops, both past and present who have served this country. On March 31st, my father-in-law passed away. He was a Marine in the Pacific Theater during World War II and stationed in Guam. He didn't like to talk about the experiences he had there. At his funeral a Marine honor guard presented my Mother-in-law with the flag that draped his coffin. It was an extremely moving ceremony. So this Memorial Day is a little more poignant for my wife and myself. I hope you have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day. I invite you and your readers to my blog to see my Memorial Day tribute.

My sister-in-law bought a couple of bottles of Jarhead Red a few weeks ago over in Gulfport, MS. That was the first time I saw one. I can't comment on the taste because 1) I am forbidden due to medical concerns of imbibing alcohol and 2) I can't stand wine to begin with.

I just found about this Carnival Of Christmas via Stop The ACLU. I guess it's too late for me to participate but I have a bunch of Christmas entries on my blog which can be viewed at: http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/ I've put some YouTube music videos, some Christmas CD reviews, Christmas pictures, Christmas cards I've received and other various Christmas goodies. I have some very special posts I worked on that are scheduled to be visible a little after midnight this evening. That way they'll be there starting just when Christmas day starts here (Eastern U.S. - Florida). So if you feel so inclined, please visit my humble little blog and leave a comment or two (or three -- the more the merrier). Thanks.

Well, once again a lot of my trackbacks are not getting through to the blogs I trackback with via Linkfest Haven. So I'm leaving the URL's for my three most recent blog entries: My Thought On The Democrat/Republican Debate http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/?p=1230 PhotoHunt 86: Red http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/?p=1231 Spring Creek Restaurant http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/?p=1232 Once again, I apologize in advance to the blog owners on whose blogs I am posting these in the comments section and I thank all the blog owners who have given me their permission to do so in the past. I hope if you read this you'll take the time not only to visit these blog entries of mine but perhaps leave a comment or two. I would appreciate it greatly.

Reminds me of New Orleans at Halloween albeit a tad more sedate.

I honestly do not know why my trackbacks are having so much trouble getting to the blogs I send them to. This latest entry is one I really wish to share and is entitled Historic Photos Of Tallahassee -- Andrew N. Edel. It's a review of a book I received for free by the publisher and I'd like to spread the news with the blogs to which I trackback. I hope you don't mind me doing this by leaving the info in the comments section. The URL for the entry is http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/?p=1178

Awww….once again my trackbacks aren’t properly getting to several of the blogs to which I attempted trackbacks. Either they only show the part where I list the trackbacked blogs (which is at the bottom of my blog entry — the text of the entry seems to get skipped) or the trackback does not show up at all. So once again I’m leaving a comment with the information for whatever it’s worth. My latest blog entry is entitled: Tin Men — Freaks For Industry! and can be read at http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/?p=1175
